12 Days of Smoothies: Mango, Coconut, and Chai

Go coco for coconuts!

Anything with coconut in it has to be good, unless you don’t like coconut.

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1/2 cup chopped peeled ripe mango (about 1/4 mango)
1 tablespoon honey, optional
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
3/4 cup ice cubes

 

Directions:
Stir the chia seeds and coconut milk together in a small bowl. Allow to sit for 30 minutes so that the chia seeds plump slightly.

Put the mango, 2 tablespoons cold water, honey if using, lime juice and ice cubes into a blender. Blend on high until very smooth. Add the chia seed and coconut milk mixture and pulse until just combined; avoid blending the chia seeds too much. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of cold water if needed to adjust consistency.
