2 ripe mangos or 2 cups frozen mango
4 tablespoons hemp seeds
24 oz coconut water (or substitute with nut milk or regular water
1/4 cup coconut butter
1/4 cup toasted coconut
2 tablespoons roughly chopped pistachio buts
Cube the mango by cutting the large section of fruit away from the center of the pit. Slice each half into thirds, turn and cut into thirds again. Flip the mango section so the cubes are revealed then use a spoon or knife to cut away the chunks. Place in the freezer to chill thoroughly ( about 20-30 minutes).
Place the chilled mango, hemp, coconut water and coconut butter into a blender and blend on high for 45 seconds or until desired consistency. Pour into 2 glasses and top with the coconut and pistachios.
