Mango and Coconut Smoothie

A delicious and refreshing smoothie is a great snack on a hot summer afternoon. With mango season fast approaching we thought it's a great time to share our mango and coconut smoothie. Use ripe or even overripe mangoes as they will have a sweeter flavour and brighter colour. Or if you don't have the time, freeze slices of overripe mango for when you you want to make this creamy snack. Enjoy the tropical flavours!

Tips & variations:
