In a blender combine:
1 c. coconut yogurt (mine is homemade, so I know there are live, active bacteria in it...these are amazing for your digestive system/immune system!) The SO Delicious brand is a super alternative!
1 c. chopped pineapple (pineapple is loaded with great digestive enzymes...bonus!)
1 c. pineapple juice
1/2 avocado (mine was really ripe...this is necessary for a super creamy texture...you'll seriously think you're eating ice cream!)
24 oz of frozen mango (I used 2 12 oz bags...the more you use, the more "frozen" it will be...so if you don't have quite that much, you'll get a runnier texture)
Throw everything into the blender and mix until you have a velvety smooth texture.
*Note: I have a Vitamix, there is a "tamper" used to keep pushing all the stuff into the blades. If you have a regular blender (I've done it in one of these too)...it just takes a little more stopping and mixing everything to get it going. You'll think it will never be able to handle it, but all of a sudden it'll come together and be perfect!
*Here's another note: I've also put spinach in this too...it makes it a really fun green color, but doesn't affect the flavor!
Top with chia seeds and raw shredded coconut (as pictured), or with bananas, pineapple tidbits, and fresh berries!
