If a smoothie could taste like summer, this would be it! This dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan smoothie is simply delicious, made with ripe mango, plums, apricots and peaches or nectarines.
Summer (and late Spring) is my favorite time of year when it comes to eating seasonal fruits and vegetables. I mean, what can be better than biting into a juicy nectarine or plum?
I had a super ripe sugar mango sitting on my counter ready to eat and decided to use it in my morning smoothie along with some of the other fruit sitting in my fruit basket; plums, nectarines and apricots (peaches would work too). Rather than using milk, I wanted to keep it dairy-free so I used Bai5 Molokai Coconut Antioxidant Infusion instead (I'm obsessed with this stuff!). If you're a fan of coconut like me, but don't care for the taste of coconut water, this is a great alternative and even tastes great straight from the bottle. In fact, I love this stuff so much (you can buy it at Costco) I reached out to them to see if I could work with them, because I've been using Bai5 in my morning smoothies and thought this was a great fit.
This recipe makes two great big smoothies, if you want to add a protein boost you could throw in some hemp seeds or chia as well.
