Carrot Mango Coconut Smoothie

Carrot Mango Coconut Smoothies light up your life.

Carrot Mango Coconut Smoothie

Hey mango! Mango Italiano! Hey mango! Mango Italiano! Go, go, go you mixed up Sicialiano. All you Calabraise-y do the mango like a crazy…

If you can walk past the mangoes in the grocery store without singing Mambo Italiano, then you’re a stronger person than I am.

If the produce man didn’t already think I’m a nut job for bobbing and weaving through the vegetables multiple times per day with a root-eating grin on my face, at least one of my Hey Mambo dance parties in front of the mango display certainly did him in.

Carrot Mango Coconut Smoothie

Oh hi, Happy Monday! Have I got a smoothie for you!

I spied Liren’s Carrot Mango and Kiwi Smoothie a couple weeks ago and went to the store as fast as my legs could carry me to get mangoes. Being all hot to trot about the 5 for $5 mango display, I completely forgot to get the kiwis. So I improvised by adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. I ended up with an entirely different smoothie from the one I was trying to copy cat, but the result was throw-a-dance-party-in-my-kitchen delicious!

I’ve been adding lemon zest or orange zest to my smoothies to give them a nice zing. Just this little addition puts a pip in your smoothie’s step and sends your mouth to tropical paradise. Oh and adding grated carrot to your smoothie? Obnoxiously smart and tasty. We already did this with my Carrot Ginger Smoothie a while back, but we can do it again here. So we did. And we do. We Mango Italiano with carrot and coconut milk.

Looks delicious. But I had to comment and say that I just adore the little bow around the glass. Best food presentation photo I've seen in a while. :]

So funny, I can see you bopping along the produce as you hunt down those mangoes! I'm so glad you tried the smoothie - and I LOVE the coconut in this!

Yes, yes! I must try it with the kiwis, too...I was just so excited about the mango-carrot, that I left poor kiwi out. Thanks for the inspiration, as always Liren!

Zest is the key. I'm sure lemon juice would be great too, but zest is that little je ne sais quois that brings the whole thing home. I double dog dare you to add zest to alllll your smoothies! :D
