Strawberry Mango Smoothie Recipe

Strawberry Mango Smoothie This creamy fruit smoothie is made with fresh mango, frozen strawberries, coconut milk and almond milk. You can use purchased almond milk, but homemade almond milk is richer and tastes better. For added flavor and texture, I add a sprinkle of almond meal to the smoothie before serving.

Strawberry Mango Smoothies Recipe (vegan)
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup fresh mango chunks
1 cup frozen strawberries
Natural sweetener, if desired
Almond meal, for sprinkling

Add almond milk, coconut milk, fresh mango chunks and frozen strawberries to a blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Taste and sweeten as desired. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with almond meal.

Makes 1 big or 2 small smoothies (about 2 cups total)

Tip: I’ve found it’s best to use fresh mango (or frozen mango that has been thawed) when blending this smoothie. If you use frozen mango, you may need to add additional almond milk for easier blending.

Pumpkin Spice Power Smoothie Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Power Smoothie
A sure sign of fall is the general frenzy around pumpkin spice drinks. I can get behind the love for all things pumpkin spice, especially in the form of a not-too-sweet pumpkin power smoothie.

This breakfast smoothie is made with Greek yogurt, almond milk, pumpkin puree and of course, spices. The addition of banana sweetens the smoothie and adds a creamy texture. If you love a bit more sweetness, add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.

Pumpkin Spice Power Smoothie Recipe
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (I prefer full fat or 2%)
1/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 medium banana, cut-up
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla
Pure maple syrup or honey, if needed

Add yogurt, pumpkin, almond milk, banana, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla to blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Taste for sweetness; add maple syrup or honey, if needed. Pour into a glass. If desired, sprinkle with additional cinnamon.

Makes 1 serving (about 1 3/4 cups)

Tip: If you love the flavor of cloves or nutmeg, add a dash of those spices before blending your smoothie. You can also use pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon and ginger.
