I know it’s kind of not exactly the weather for smoothies any more, but that doesn’t stop Jacob asking for them! So I thought a smoothie would be the perfect first recipe to try in the High Power Blender that I have been sent from the Panasonic Kitchen. The great thing about this coconut and mango smoothie recipe in this blender is that you can just chuck all the ingredients in, press the smoothie programme, and off you go. No need to pulse or anything to break ingredients up, as it does it all for you.
Coconut milk is a perfect addition to a smoothie, and I went even more tropical by adding mango as well. I also chucked some oats and chia seeds in for a bit more goodness, and voila; a tasty coconut and mango smoothie that is wonderful as part of breakfast or for a quick snack during the day. This is one of those lovely thick smoothies where the straw actually stays stood up – love those!
Ingredients (serves 3-4)
- 500ml coconut milk
- 1 medium mango, cubed
- 1 large banana, sliced
- 40g rolled oats
- 1tsp chia seeds (I used milled but whole would be fine too)
- Put all ingredients into the blender jug, liquid first and dry ingredients last.
- Select the smoothie function, press start, and wait for the programme to end..
- Serve and enjoy!
