Spring Into Smoothies With A Mango-Coconut Chia Smoothie & Sweepstakes

Spring is a great time for smoothies.


  I love smoothies as they are a great way to enjoy fruit and they make for a nutritious snack or breakfast. I always have plenty of frozen fruit  in my freezer so I can whip a smoothie in no time. Some of my favorite frozen fruits are mangos, peaches, strawberries, and blueberries. I think frozen fruits make my smoothies taste so much better too. My favorite fruit to use is Wyman's of Maine as they process their fruit within 24 hours of harvest, thus locking in the fresh fruit flavor. I just love the creamy texture that frozen fruit gives to my smoothies also. Wyman's of Maine carries so many different fruits so I can make a different smoothie every day. My boys love when I make them a smoothie for an afternoon treat. Their favorite smoothie is made with frozen mango and coconut flakes. It is a wonderful tropical frozen drink. I add chia seeds to give my boys some heart healthy omegas and protein. Check out my recipe and then keep reading to see how your favorite smoothie recipe can win you a top of the line blender and a one-year supply of Wyman's frozen fruit.



                        Mango-Coconut Chia Smoothie
                  Ingredients
                                 1 cup Wyman's frozen mango
                                 1 cup coconut or almond milk
                                 2 tablespoons dried coconut flakes
                                 1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
                                 1 tablespoon honey
                                 1/2 cup ice
                                 2 tablespoons chia seed
                  Directions
                                Place all ingredients except chia seeds into a blender. Blend until smooth and frothy.Stir in chia seeds with a spoon and pour into a glass. This makes one generous serving or 2 kid-size smoothies.


               Now for the sweepstakes!
   Wyman's is launching a sweepstakes called Spring Into Smoothies. Wyman's is hosting an awesome giveaway on their Instagram page. They are asking Instagram users to post a photo of their favorite smoothie, that uses Wyman's of Maine frozen fruit, and include the recipe in the caption. One must tag @wymansfruit and use the dedicated hashtag #SpringIntoSmoothies. The idea is to show off the vibrant varieties of smoothies using Wyman's fresh, healthy fruit. Any variety of Wyman’s is fine with us. Each time someone uses the hashtag during the 4-week period, they will be entered to win a top of the line blender ($500 value) and a one-year supply of Wyman's frozen fruit. All participants can enter once per week during the 4-week period.

 Visit http://www.wymans.com/ to see all the delicious varieties of frozen fruit and to get some smoothie ideas. I bought my Wyman's frozen mangos at Sprouts. To see what stores near you carry this delicious frozen fruit, visit the store locator on the Wyman's website--            http://www.wymans.com/article/store-locator.

                        What is your favorite frozen fruit smoothie?
