Hydrating Mango Mint Smoothie

Hello heeellooo <3

So, let me introduce you to a little somethin' that I have been making non stop for about 2 weeks now. It's been my breakfast a few times as well, including today.

First off, I got this idea from a good friend of mine. She had gone on a trip to the beautiful Costa Rica and once she returned, I wanted all the details of her adventures. During this little "storytime" she had mentioned to me how once she got off the plane she was offered a nice cool towel and this mango minty concoction. She said it was the strangest but most delicious combo of ingredients. So simple, so healthy...SO tasty!

Now, mangoes are my absolute favorite fruit. (Banana's come second, but I just recently found out I have a mild allergy to them...more on that another time)

I had to try making this. I figured, how hard can it be? It's only 3 ingredients...but what mango-mint ratio do I use?  I finally got the perfect recipe.

Here's what you need:

2 Mangoes
1/4 c. tightly packed mint leaves
1/2 -1 c coconut water ( depending on how thick you want it)

Chop up those mangoes, add in the mint and the coconut water...BLEND and VOILA! You're done ;)

The mint makes this so refreshing and the coconut water makes you feel so hydrated.
I hope you enjoy!
