Oh, did I mention I was making them on camera? Add a video camera to the mix and making a smoothie turns into a several hour process. It’s fun though. I’m trying to learn more about shooting and editing video. I figure the more videos I do the more I’ll learn. Look for the videos to be posted in the next few days. In the meantime, here’s a simple smoothie recipe featuring coconut water, mango and strawberries. It has a slushy consistency and is really refreshing. The best part is it only took me 5 minutes to make since no filming took place during the making of this smoothie!
Mango Coconut Water Smoothies
3/4 cup coconut water, chilled
1/4 cup orange juice, chilled
1 cup fresh or frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup ice cubes
Add coconut water, orange juice, mango chunks and strawberries to blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Add ice cubes; cover and blend until slushy. Pour into 2 glasses.
Makes 2 servings
Tip: Coconut water is the liquid from young, green coconuts. Coconut water is naturally fat-free and full of electrolytes like potassium. Be sure to use coconut water for this recipe, not coconut milk. (Although coconut milk would be delicious! If you try it, let me know how it turns out.)
