Fruit and Nut Smoothie

Photo: Victor Protasio

Serves 1 (serving size: about 2 cups)

This easy, satisfying sipper will likely keep you full till lunchtime. A small splash of coconut milk adds satiating richness (and, admittedly, a fair amount of saturated fat), but the walnuts balance with a big boost of heart- and brain-healthy omega-3 fats. Fresh orange juice sweetens the smoothie naturally (there’s no added sugar), and frozen mango contributes creaminess when blended. Feel free to sub any berry for the strawberries; blueberries or raspberries would be particularly good here.


  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 2/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango cubes
  • 1/3 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnut halves
  • 1/4 cup canned light coconut milk
