Mango Coconut Smoothie | Easy Japanese Recipes at JustOneCookbook.com

As the weather gets warmer and we crave to drink something cold to refresh ourselves, I try to make smoothies for my family.  With all the different smoothie we enjoy at home, one of my children’s favorite is the Mango Coconut Smoothie.  It’s a perfect drink to add extra nutrition into our diet and cool down at the same time.

My son really loves mangos and we usually have them in our kitchen when they are in season.  However, when mangoes are not in season, we purchase frozen mango to make this delicious smoothie.  Thinking of creating a tropical flavor with mango, I used this delicious Unsweetened Coconutmilk from Silk to add natural sweet taste instead of using my regular almond milk.

The resulting mango coconut smoothie was a hit, and my entire family loved it.  By the way, Silk Coconutmilk is not the same as the typical canned coconut milk.  This coconut milk is a thin or light variety and it’s dairy, gluten and soy- free.  It’s an excellent beverage option for vegan smoothies as it contains no animal products.

I usually add kale and spinach in every smoothie I make at home, but if you are not a big green leaf eater, start by making healthy smoothies without the green vegetables.  Then try adding one or two leaves into your smoothie at a time, and then gradually increase the amount of green vegetables.  You will be surprised your smoothie tastes so good even with green vegetables in it ( (just like Mr. JOC was!  He eats green veggies but was against the idea of leafy green in his drinks).

  1. I’ve been so incredibly busy and haven’t had the time to drop by. But when I saw the title of this post in my mailbox, I had to make time to come. Such a tropical refreshing treat!! Healthy too! With the mango season upon us now, you can bet I’ll be churning some of this smoothie out over the weekend. Thanks for the share, Nami :-)

    Thank you for sharing more smoothie recipes! I can’t wait to try this one–just have to get some chia seeds!
    I will post a pic on Instagram after I make it.

    • Hi Donna! I hope you enjoy this one, and I look forward to your IG photo! :) I buy chia seeds (small purple bag) from Trader Joe’s and frozen mangoes from Costco. 😉

    Delicious, healthy and refreshing smoothie! I’m going to have to try that coconut milk – don’t think I’ve seen or noticed it in the markets yet but fantastic option!

  4. Oh my how can I resist this Mango Coconut Smoothie? It has all the flavors I love — coconut milk, condensed milk, banana and best of all, mangoes! Love it. Thanks for sharing, Nami. I wouldn’t pass this up for anything !

    Silk coconut milk has carageen which is unhealthy. So Delicious coconut milk does not. Most food products have carageen in them so remember to read your labels carefully.

  6. This looks so wonderful! I love the combination of flavors and I bet it smells amazing. I love something like this that’s healthy but feels and tastes practically like dessert!

  7. Mr. She’s Cookin’ hasn’t warmed up to green beverages, but I add carrot or beet greens which lends an orange or pink hue which is much more acceptable :) Mango and coconut are a tropical pairing that I’ve always loved!

  8. 息子さんは偉いですね。マンゴーと言うと大人の味が思いだします。その理由でマンゴーあまり食べません。(笑)いずれにしても、なみさんのスムージーはとても美味しそうで是非試しみたいです。

  9. When I was a child I used to love smoothies made with… kefir (it’s like sour cream, but made with milk…), so your post reminds me a bit my childhood (of course I didn’t know coconut milk at the time). My favourite was blueberry I think. I still love kefir (very healthy by the way), but somehow I forgot about smoothies…
    Your mango smoothie looks amazing. Coconut and mango go so perfectly well together (I combine them in a kanten-set wobbly dessert and love this combination).

  10. Dear Nami, now I am intrigued by that fresh coconut milk – I have never seen this around here (only the canned stuff), I would love to find some though as I imagine it muct taste fabulous, particularly in a smoothie like you prepared. I will take a look while I am grocery shopping at the health food store next week because I I would love to prepare this smoothie for the kids – it has turned quite warm around here, so I am looking for delicious, refreshing recipes for the kids and us.
    Have a great Sunday,
    Andrea

  11. We have been drinking lots of coconut and almond milk recently, the kids love it, it is perfect for smoothies too, but I am still have to try it with mango (a bit rare here in NZ).

    Have a great week

  12. Coconut milk, or rather, coconut-everything, has been such a huge trend lately! It`s funny, since many Southeast Asian countries have been eating them forever! Haha. I know so many mango lovers who would loveee to try this!

  13. Great smoothie Nami. I have been on a big smoothie kick lately too so I will definitely give this one a try. Yeah I love to add spinach or cucumber.

    33
  14. Now you impress me again, I lived in a tropical country abundant with mangoes and coconut and I never had imagined combining the two. Now I know and I am eagerly wanting to try some now badly, I know it would taste amazing

    34
  15. Yeah, I think I need to do the slow taper to add greens to my smoothies, too :) Mangoes and coconuts sound like such a terrific combination…no wonder these smoothies pleased the whole family :)

    36
  16. I agree, cold drinks are essential in the Summer. I have been working with and enjoying more coconut products, love them! Your recipe sounds delicious, Hugs, Terra

    Hey Nami, definitely looks amazing! Can’t wait to try it! I was just wondering if it was possible to use normal plain yogurt instead of using Greek, because up here in Canada, Greek yogurt can be very expensive…

    Thanks!

    40
    • Hi Megumi! Yes you can use normal plain yogurt. My kids love Vanilla yogurt too! I use Greek for healthy option, but it doesn’t have to be Greek yogurt. :) Hope you enjoy!

  18. Nami-san, I will have to look for silks new coconut milk that sounds so delicious and a great addition to our morning smoothies. I also love that little nutribullet you have. That makes things easier when making small portions. I can’t wait to give this recipe a try. Have a super week. Take Care, BAM

  19. Wasn’t it you who developed an allergy to mango last year? That must suck – I love mango so much, I really could eat it every day.

    Love the idea of the smoothie – I thought it might be more yellow, but I guess when coupled with the coconut milk it doesn’t stand a chance! 😀

    45
    • Hi Charles! Yeah that’s me! My kids love this a lot and I actually enjoy a few sips from their glass (crossing fingers nothing would happen). =P Yeah the color is all about ratio on the ingredients. :)

  20. Silk Coconut Milk? I use the soy milk quite often, but haven’t seen the coconut milk. Will be keeping my eye out for that as well as the chia seeds. Still have picked up any of those either. They seem to be in everything nowadays. Bobby and I have been having smoothies about 5 times a week now that the weather is HOT, so this is going on the list as a must try! Thanks Nami!

    Tried this today using So Delicious Original Coconut milk (sorry, I know this is an advert for Silk, but I wanted to be honest for the changes I made), Zoi Vanilla Greek yogurt, and also added whey protein powder. It was DELICIOUS and not too sweet at all (seems like unsweetened yogurt/coconut milk might need honey or syrup if not using fresh mango). I added a cup of kale, but that was a mistake because it didn’t blend up very well, producing flakes of kale through the smoothie that I had to chew/pick out of teeth. I will try adding spinach (which blends easier) as the very subtle flavor of greens and color actually complement the creaminess of the mango and banana very well. This was very filling for a smoothie. Thanks!

    • Hi Bree! Thank you so much for sharing your tip and I’m glad to hear you enjoyed it. I haven’t tried adding whey protein powder yet, but my trainer recommended so I will start adding it to mine too. :) Thanks for your comment!
