Mango, avocado and beetroot smoothie

I enjoy making smoothies. They don't require much effort, just put your fruits and vegetables in a blender and you're good to go. I made this smoothie with mango, avocado and beetroot.
I decided to use a spoon to enjoy this smoothie because it came out quite thick. Increasing the amount of coconut water will give you a lighter smoothie, if you wish. Making a smoothie with your fruits and or vegetables keeps you full because of its fiber content. With this smoothie, you get the health benefits of mango, avocado, beetroot and coconut water. Really healthy!

Ingredients
1 big mango
1 avocado pear
2 small beetroots
1 cup coconut water
1/2 cup milk

This makes 3 servings

Method
Wash and cut mango into small bits. Wash avocado and cut it up. Freeze the mango and avocado.
 Peel the skin of the beetroot, cut the beetroot into small pieces.
Put the beetroot pieces in the blender, add some coconut water and blend until almost smooth. Add mango, avocado, milk and the remaining coconut water. Blend until smooth. Serve.


TIP
If there's no time to freeze your fruits, you can blend them along with ice cubes so you have a chilled smoothie.
