With a double hit of coconut, fresh mango and strawberries, this refreshing smoothie packs a coconut punch.

Mango-Berry-and-Toasted-Coconut_Smoothie

This thick and refreshing smoothie gets it’s tropical taste from coconut milk, toasted shredded coconut and fresh mango.

Lime juice gives this smoothie a touch of tart citrus flavor, and strawberries are added for an extra layer of flavor and texture.

When buying fresh strawberries, I try to pick the container that has the best looking leaves on top the strawberries.

The container of strawberries with leaves that look fresh and green without any dry, brown or wilted spots are the ones I like to buy.

The trick is to use the strawberries when they’re nice and fresh.

Here are more recipes with strawberries you may like “Blueberry Pancake Whoopie Pie with Strawberries and Cream Cheese Frosting“, “Sugar Coated Skillet Biscuits with Double Strawberry Shortcake” and “Strawberries and Whipped Cream with a Crunch“.

So often I’ll have high hopes for recipes using strawberries and get too busy to make them.

Then I know it’s time to make a smoothie to use up the berries.

When the leaves on top of the strawberries are nice and fresh sometimes I’ll leave them on when making a smoothie since they’re edible.

In addition to smoothies there’s other ways to put strawberry tops to good use.  Here’s a link to an article with helpful tips from The Kitchn on what to make with strawberry tops.

The coconut and mango in this smoothie are a nice compliment to the strawberries.

In combination it tastes wonderful.

Let’s check out all the ingredients in this delicious smoothie.
