Coconut-Mango Smoothie

Surprising at it may be, I actually have a {healthy} recipe for you today!

After an fitness-related SweatPink Twitter chat a few weeks ago, the fantastic team at Zola sent me a case of their 100% Natural Coconut Water.

Remember this photo?

To be honest, after enjoying fresh-from-the-actual-coconut water a month ago, I wasn’t sure what I would think of Zola’s coconut water.  I was pleasantly surprised, however, to find out that Zola’s coconut water tastes exactly like the fresh coconut I enjoyed while in Puerto Rico!

In addition to taking me back to my vacation in paradise, Zola’s coconut water offers the following benefits:

  • Supports natural hydration
  • Contains essential electrolytes: potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium
  • 100% Natural & Delicious
  • Gluten and GMO Free, 100% Vegan
  • BPA Free Can

Plus, it’s tastes amazing and, if you close your eyes and imagine that there is a sea breeze blowing through your hair, it will make you think you’re in Puerto Rico ;)

So, what does one do with coconut water? Well, besides drink it from a coconut or a can?

One creates healthy, nutrient-packed recipes with it!

With spring quickly approaching, I have been craving fresh, tropical fruits. Fruits like bananas and coconuts and grapes and mangoes!

And since I had an entire case of Zola’s Coconut Water sitting in my fridge, I took the opportunity to create a thick and creamy smoothie to share with you!

My Coconut-Mango Smoothie!

Ripe chunks of mango, electrolyte-rich coconut water and protein-packed Greek yogurt make this smoothie irresistible.

It’s like a tropical beach party in your mouth… minus the sand ;)

  6. Oh that smoothie looks soo good! And I want to drink directly from a coconut! I love puerto rico, that picture makes me want to go back!! Happy Friday :)

  7. This smoothie sounds amazing! Perfect for a post workout treat! I personally enjoy coconut water but I know a lot of people who don’t.

  8. Yum!! Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits to add to smoothies. Oh, and they taste pretty darn great in frozen margaritas, too! ;)

    • Oh there will definitely be some mango margaritas in my future this summer… And some healthier piña coladas with coconut water!! ;)

  9. I love coconut so very much, I’m sure that I would really enjoy this smoothie. I have got to get a new blender!!

  10. YUM!!! I LOVE coconut mango smoothies! I make one probably once a week!

    I love coconut all by itself, in smoothies, and also in mixed drinks ;) My favorite is with frozen pineapple chunks, frozen mango chunks, coconut water, and a little coconut rum. Blend and it’s a health(ier) frozen pina colada!

    • Mmmm….. I’m totally needing one of those drinks right now!! I will definitely be bringing that recipe to my pool this summer :)

  11. Coconut water is fantastic. The best when enjoyed fresh on the beach, buuuuuuut not too bad in smoothies either ;) And the combination of coconut and mango? Definitely tropical territory right there.

  12. I love coconut water! And mangoes. This is a smoothie that I will be trying ASAP!

  13. Yum!!! I want mine in a coconut :)

  14. Fresh coconut water is SO tasty. I don’t often buy the cartons at the grocery store, but I do love a tropical smoothie!

    But girl… I have to ask… Where’s the rum?! ;).

  15. This smoothie recipe sounds so refreshing and delicious. I’m not a huge fan of coconut water by itself, but in smoothies.. yes please! I like coconut water with a banana & the Earth Balance coconut pb spread.

    • Ooh that combination sounds delightful! I’ve never tried the Earth Balance PB spread… I’ll have to add it to my list in the near future :)
