This Tropical Coconut Smoothie is bursting with flavor! It is layered with tart strawberry, creamy coconut and tropical mango. The base of this smoothie is made with Young Thai Coconut Meat which is soft and sweet. Raw coconut meat is high in dietary fiber and rich in medium chain fatty acids, which the body uses as fuel. That makes this a perfect smoothie before a workout.
This Tropical Coconut Smoothie is fun to eat! I served two small glasses to my children and divided the rest between my husband and myself. I asked my family what their favorite flavors were. My son loved the creamy coconut center, while my daughter loved the tart strawberry, I liked the mango flavor and my husband drank his so fast that it was too late to put his straw in each flavor to see which was his favorite! I know for sure he loved it because it disappeared in a flash! If you have leftover smoothie, tropical popsicles will be a huge hit with your kids. This Tropical Smoothie looks good, tastes good and makes you feel good!!!!
