Are you a smoothie lover or a smoothie bowl lover? Because either way THIS creamy mango collagen smoothie is meant for you! Can be eaten with a spoon or a straw, your choice. This smoothie tastes like vacation.
If you've been following along for a while you know I adore smoothies. Something about a creamy blended drink with a straw. I first eat the toppings with a spoon, followed by the straw to drink the smoothie. Each creamy sip reminds me of pina Coladas, and beach vacations.
The best way to make a creamy smoothie is to add yogurt. Whatever yogurt you desire that works for your food limitations. Made with thick cultured and sugar-free coconut yogurt bringing out the flavor of the sweet mango. By adding yogurt, your smoothie will taste like a frozen yogurt milkshake!
Every time I drink this Creamy Mango Smoothie I feel a boost of energy in the form of nutrients.

MY FAVORITE COCONUT YOGURTS
- My favorite yogurt these days is Coyo, Anita's, and Harmless Harvest
- The types of yogurts I like to use are unsweetened tangy ones
- These three brands I mentioned above are yogurt brands are coconut-based and use minimal ingredients
- I used Purely Elizabeth Hemp Blueberry Granola
- Unsweetened coconut chips from the gluten-free section of nutsdotcom

WHY ADD COLLAGEN TO A SMOOTHIE?
- Aids in the regrowth of hair, skin, and nails
- Strengthens already grown hair, skin, and nails
- Restores collagen in the face meaning fewer wrinkles
- Smoothes over acne scars making your face look plumper - aka collagen
- As we age we lose collagen in our bodies, that's the result of wrinkles and less plump skin, brittle nails, and hair. We can rebuild that by taking a collagen supplement or powder.
