Mango Colada

Mango Colada is mango and coconut. I used fresh mangoes because they are in season, you can use frozen mangoes or mango sorbet as well. Its a very refreshing drink, I have made mocktail, you can add your favorite to make it cocktail. Have fun!

  • 2 kensington pride mangoes/ any sweet mangoes (medium sized)(peeled and cut into cubes)
  • 400 mL coconut milk
  • Some sugar (optional) (if you don’t have sweet mangoes then add a bit of sugar)
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • Some ice cubes to serve
  • Some strawberries to serve


-Combine everything in blender jug and blend until smooth.

-Fill half of the glass with ice cubes and pour over colada until the glasses are topped up.

-Cut a slit in strawberry and hang it on the rim of the glass. You can put some whipped cream and maraschino cherry as well on top to make it look more presentable but I have done that with my pina colada drink so I tried something different and easy here.

  • 1 apple (granny smith preferred) (cored and cut into wedges)
  • 1 navel orange (peeled)
  • 1 beetroot (peeled and cut into wedges)
  • 1 carrot (peeled)
  • A piece of ginger
  • ½ lemon


-Wash, peel and cut all the fruits and vegetables.

-Put your juicer setting on high and process them.

-If you have a pro fountain juicer, like I have that mashes and grinds everything and collect all the residue in the strainer fitted inside and pour the juice out in the container, then it is perfect otherwise blend all the ingredients in a blender on high speed and make puree. Put a fine sieve over a jug or any container and pour the puree over the sieve. Use spoon to swirl mix it and collect the refined juice in the container. Discard the residue collected in the sieve.

-Fill quarter of your glass with crushed ice and pour the juice. Get a straw and enjoy your healthy breakfast drink which will give your skin a healthy and a natural glow plus all the vitality you need to start your day.
