The VegStart Diet Recipe: Mango Coconut Smoothie for Breakfast or Snack
Why this Mango Coconut Smoothie is Healthy:
Mango promotes healthy digestion while cauliflower is high in fiber and vitamin B. Mangos have 122 milligrams of Vitamin C per medium gruit, which is double the amount in an orange.
Why It Works for Weight Loss:
Coconut milk is satisfying and the fatty acid profile can potentially help with aiding weight loss efforts. Note about this recipe as a snack. We recommend snacks stay within 200 calories or so, and this Smoothie is over that, so only drink about half when you have it as a snack. Or make the whole recipe and save half for another time.
