Hello there! Even though we are entering Fall I still love to indulge in a thick and creamy tropical smoothie. For today's blend I included oats which gives the smoothie more body and lots of fiber. I was craving something sweet this afternoon so instead of reaching for junk food I had this as a snack and it did the trick!
This smoothie is packed with nutritious ingredients that are healthy and satisfying. Pineapple (my favorite) contains a high amount of vitamin C and is a good source of dietary fiber and the enzyme bromelain. It's also a great source of manganese and thiamin which is a B vitamin.
The fiber in mango can help improve digestion and because they contain allot of vitamin C and vitamin A, as well as carotenoids they can help to boost the immune system and are great for skin health. The mighty mango is also a good source of vitamin B, potassium and magnesium.
TROPICAL SMOOTHIE WITH OATS
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup coconut cream
3/4 cup frozen mango
1 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1. Add oats to a blender, cover and blend until it becomes a semi fine powder.
2. Add the banana, coconut milk, coconut cream and vanilla and blend.
3. Add frozen mango pieces and the frozen pineapple and blend until smooth.
Pour and enjoy!
