Strawberry-Mango Golden Smoothie

strawberry mango golden smoothie

I use the Bella Cucina Rocket Blender to make my smoothies.

This is my current smoothie, dairy-free, now that that's a thing for me. I originally made this with all mango, and that was good, but then accidentally stumbled into this "rosegold" version when I had the tail ends of a bag of frozen strawberries and a bag of frozen mangos to use up. Which I prefer, it's lighter. More refreshing.

1 cup coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4-6 frozen mango chunks
4-6 frozen strawberries
coconut water

Put the coconut milk, spices, and frozen fruits into the blender cup, then add a splash of coconut water if you know how much to add. Otherwise screw on the cap, stick the cup on the motor base, blend for 30 seconds, then take a peek at how thick it is and add coconut water to thin it out as needed. Blend for another 30 seconds or until the smoothie is churning freely from top to bottom.
