Mango Pina Colada Ingredients

  • Small Bananas: Bananas add natural sweetness and contribute to the creamy texture of the smoothie.
  • Fresh Lime Zest: A hint of lime zest brings a zesty freshness that elevates the mango flavor.

Notes & Tips for a Mango Pina Colada

  • Walnuts vs. Alternatives: While walnuts are my nut of choice for their nutritional profile and creamy texture, feel free to experiment with pecans or macadamia nuts for a slightly different flavor.
  • Coconut Milk Substitutes: If you’re looking to avoid coconut products, opt for a creamy nut milk like oat milk or cashew milk to maintain the smoothie’s luxurious texture.

If you’re looking for a nutrient-packed powerhouse smoothie that serves as the perfect start to your day, a refreshing snack, or even a dessert alternative then look no further!
