Coconut Milk is an ingredient which is suitable for all weathers and especially during summers. Coconut milk provides important minerals needed to maintain blood volume, regulate heart health, and prevent dehydration which is very commonly observed in many individuals during summers. Dr Tanisha Mehta, Consultant - Dietician and Nutritionist, Columbia Asia Hospital Sarjapur Road, gives us two super recipes to have this summer made predominantly by coconut milk.
1) Coconut Mango Smoothie
This is a cool and refreshing drink loaded with micro-nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C and loads of minerals.
Blend in the coconut milk and the chopped mangoes in a smoothie maker/mixer. Gradually add crushed ice and blend it smooth. Add Honey/ coconut sugar. In a tall glass, layer the bottom with chopped mangoes or mango puree, add the smoothie and garnish with chopped mangoes and mint leaf.
