The Taste of Holidays With A Mango And Coconut Protein Shake
Take your taste buds on a holiday with this refreshing, tropical protein concoction!
This high protein shake is the perfect way to refresh after a long, hot and sweaty workout!
Coconut milk makes the base for this light shake and is a great source of vitamin C, E, B6, iron and calcium.
It’s also high in healthy fats which have been shown to regulate appetite and increase your metabolism.
To help to create that thick and creamy texture, coconut yoghurt conserves the tropical flavour while the desiccated coconut adds texture.
Unless you look after yourself properly, working out hard can take a bit of a toll on your immune system.
Mangos are addition to your diet with lots of vitamin C and A to help your body repair damaged tissue, maintain healthy skin and hair and help prevent illness.
They are a great low calorie option and contain fibre to keep you regular.
Whether it’s the middle of summer or a cold, wintry day, this shake delivers all your post-workout nutritional needs in a drink that’s so good you’ll want to hit the gym again just so you can have another one.
With an energy sustaining combination of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats it also makes an ideal on-the-go meal or breakfast.
