Mango Coconut Quinoa

This Mango Coconut Quinoa makes a delicious lunch or dinner! It’s healthy, vegan, gluten-free and fuss-free.

The ingredients are simple, making it a quick and easy recipe, (especially during the work-week when we have busy schedules). It’s made by sautéing spinach with a bit of coconut oil. Then adding cooked quinoa and mango chunks, and finally pouring in some coconut milk and a splash of lemon juice.

This Mango Coconut Quinoa dish is part of my 3-day Cleanse, but I make it all the time when looking for a wholesome and healthy lunch. The coconut cream makes it deliciously comforting, and the fats help to keep you full. We are sneaking in quite a bit of greens by sautéing the spinach. (I also like to use kale, but it’s not always easy to find in France).

Quinoa is a gluten-free grain and high in protein, which is great for keeping us full and satiated. Sprinkled with a little cayenne pepper and sea salt to sprinkle and it’s a heavenly healthy dish.

Enjoy this Mango Coconut Quinoa for lunch or dinner. Or, have it amongst my 3-Day Cleanse if you’re looking to re-energize and de-bloat.

  1. Thank you for all the recipes. My girlfriend and I did your 3 day cleanse. We loved the smoothies and the bowls. Both of us felt more clear and cleaner. I felt so good afterwards that I’ve decided to stay vegan. It feels better all around, for my mind, body and the planet. Thank you for the taking the time to write this blog and share everything!

    • Hi Angelena! Wow what a very sweet comment. This truly made my day! I am so glad that you enjoyed the cleanse. I absolutely love it too and how it makes me feel when I’m finished. Thanks again for your note and all the best with your plant-based diet! Good on you for making the transition!
