Mango, Berry & Banana Smoothie

Serving Size: 2

Tasty, and healthy, too: Coconut water is high in potassium and other electrolytes. And Flaxseeds are a good source of beneficial omega-3s.


  • 1 very ripe peeled banana (preferably frozen)
  • 2 pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunk
  • 0.75 cup coconut water
  • 0.5 cup frozen blackberries or blueberries
  • 0.25 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
