This Mango Pineapple Coconut Smoothie is so refreshing during hot summer days. It's made with 3 simple ingredients - fresh or frozen, it's still fabulous!
In my experience of talking to body builders and just gym “enthusiasts” in general, who have lean bodies and 6-packs, they always say that the key to staying lean is keeping off the carbs, including fruit. I get the whole concept of not eating white rice, french baguette and cookies daily. But to me the fruit restriction would be like some sort of sentencing! Who’s with me?! So you bet that if I showed them this Mango Pineapple Coconut Smoothie, they would just read the words, see the chunks of mango and pineapple on top and shake their head. And I get where they’re coming from. But for the most of us not training for a body building competition, and just trying to maintain healthy habits, this smoothie is extremely healthy and extremely diet-friendly!
It’s 116 calories per cup.
Only 26 grams of carbs…that’s like 10% of the carbs you should be consuming in a day.
And it has zero fat.
So don’t be afraid of smoothies, don’t be afraid of fruit and please don’t be afraid of carbs. It’s all about that fine balance and not depriving yourself of the sweet stuff your body craves.
