I’m so honored to have my friend, Liz of The Lemon Bowl, sharing this amazing smoothie recipe with us today!
Hi friends! I’m Liz from The Lemon Bowl and I am honored to be guest posting today for the beautiful and crazy talented Amy. As a healthy recipe blogger and busy mom of two young boys, I love creating easy recipes made from simple ingredients.
I don’t know about you but we love smoothies in our house. Not only are they a great way to use up fruits and veggies that are a little past their prime but they are literally a meal in a glass.
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, this protein-packed Mango Coconut Green Smoothie is naturally sweetened and has no artificial coloring. Made with creamy coconut milk, juicy mango and sweet bananas, your entire family will love this healthy and delicious smoothie.
Whether you make it for breakfast, an after-school snack or dessert, just promise me you’ll make it.
Your straw is waiting.
Mango Coconut Green Smoothie

Serves: 1 serving
- Place all ingredients in a high speed blender and puree until smooth.
- To prepare glass, pour ¼ cup or so of chia seeds on a plate. Run the rim of a glass under running water then carefully dip the top of the glass onto the plate until the rim is covered in chia seeds.
- Pour the smoothie into the glass and serve.
If you are working with frozen fruit you may need to add a bit of liquid to get the smoothie blending - I like to add water or a bit more coconut milk to reach the desired consistency.
