I love mangos! They are incredibly delicious, as well as an excellent source of vitamin C and owe their intensely colored flesh to high levels of carotenoids, a type of antioxidant. They are also a good source of vitamin A, which is vital for our immune systems. Mangos are also loaded with fiber.

Here’s my vegan Coco-Mango Smoothie recipe from my cookbook, Eating in Color. It has all the powers of mango, plus the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric. If you want to add a protein boost, add a scoop of protein powder made from plant protein. I hope you enjoy it!

Coco-Mango Smoothie
Serves 2
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled, pitted and diced
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • ½ cup coconut butter, such as Nutiva Coconut Manna
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 cup ice, plus more for serving
In a blender, combine all of the ingredients with 1 cup of water and blend until smooth. Pour into 2 glasses over ice, if desired, and serve.
