Mango Coconut Smoothie Bowl
I feel like I blinked and it went from snow days to pool days in seconds.
I love playing outside with my boys, so I am not complaining. As those May flowers appear and the June sun is almost among us, I have been in the mood for super fresh fruit to snack on. I picked up some beautiful mangos at the farmers market this week and instantly I also knew a smoothie bowl would definitely be in my future. What is better than a refreshing mango coconut smoothie bowl on a hot summer’s day?
This mango coconut smoothie bowl combines these delicious mangoes with the light taste of coconut to provide a nutritious treat. I crave this coconut mango smoothie bowl for breakfast, but I think it would make a perfect snack or dessert after spending a long day outside. My boys love having it as a midday snack because it tastes like a sweet treat – but much healthier.
Both mango and coconut are known for packing a punch when it comes to nutrients, so combining them in a delicious coconut mango smoothie bowl is a no brainer. Some benefits of combining coconut and mango are a balanced digestive system, vitamin C, and healthy, clear skin.
And the best part of the mango coconut smoothie bowl? It is a piece of (vegan) cake to make using minimal ingredients!
