Mango Strawberry Colada

A tropical Mango Strawberry Colada is a perfect quick breakfast or refreshing drink to sip while enjoying this spring/summer weather. 

I always have a variety of frozen fruit in my freezer.  I buy fresh fruit a lot, but sometimes we can't get to all of it in time so when they need to be used up fast, I clean and wash them and pop them in the freezer to make smoothies.  I love using frozen fruit in my smoothies because this avoids the need of using ice to make the smoothie frosty and cold.  The smoothie is full of flavor and does not get watered down by ice.

Today, my smoothie was all about the abundance of mangoes that I acquired at the Asian market this week.   I also had a bunch of strawberries in my freezer so it was a marriage made in fruit colada heaven. 

I decided to use my coconut milk beverage to make this into a colada. I love using coconut milk for healthy, dairy-free meals and drinks.  This smoothie only takes a few minutes to prep and blend up... and then I take my time enjoying every sip.
