I love mango and easy recipes, so this3 Ingredient Mango Coconut Paleo Milkshake went right to the top of my must-try list. Sweet and tart frozen mango, thick coconut cream, and just a touch of maple syrup for sweetness sounded sooooo good! Okay, I was a little skeptical about the maple syrup, but there was only one way to find out if it worked or not…

An easy, 3 ingredient recipe for super thick and frosty mango coconut milkshakes!
How much can I say about the ingredients since there were only 3? I had maple syrup, so my shopping list for this recipe was super short, just the coconut milk and frozen mango chunks.
As you can see in the main photo, I did decide to add canned whipped cream topping with a chunk of frozen mango as a garnish. I was originally going to skip the whipped cream since I’m not on the keto diet, but I decided to go for it at the last minute.
When I first made this recipe, blending my mango coconut milkshake wasn’t as quick as I hoped it would be. Although I used a blender designed for smoothies, it had trouble with the frozen mango.
I found that I had to pulse and stir several times before the mixture was liquified enough to just blend. I spent 5 minutes on my milkshakes. It wasn’t a super long time, all things considered, but I think thawing the mango under some running water first might have made things easier.
When I decided to redo the photos for this post, I had upgraded my blender to a Ninja. The central column of blades had no trouble at all with the full recipe. I forgot to time it since I wasn’t planning to update my original review, but I’m sure it was faster than my old blender. And this time I didn’t have to scrape down the sides or do any extra stirring.
