Is it a smoothie or is it a juice? I know, I know – it’s so hard to choose sometimes. But when luscious mangoes first appear on the summer scene, it’s gotta be a Tropical Green Smoothie, right?
Adding a little more coconut water than usual will give you the best of both worlds: a fibre-packed smoothie full of goodness with a juicy flare. Plus it’ll help keep your blood sugar levels more stable.
Fresh mint and lime also come to the party with a tropical twist that’ll have you limbo-ing around the lounge room in no time. xx

- 1/4 cup firmly packed mint leaves

WOW! LOVE the green color! It almost GLOWS! Many of my smoothies are a cross between a smoothie and a juice! I LOVE the ones I have been posting the last couple of weeks!
