Our Mint Mango Smoothie is incredibly refreshing—with only five ingredients. If you’re looking for a healthier snack, here’s a great way to start fresh!
We usually make this smoothie in less than 10 minutes. The longest process is cutting and peeling the mango, so it was not that difficult. If you’re vegan, use coconut milk frozen yogurt rather than the real stuff.
Creamy and fruity, this smoothie is great for breakfast along with some oatmeal or as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon pick-me-up. It satisfies your craving for something sweet and keeps you from eating an unhealthy snack.
