I came up with a recipe for mango muffins using Naked Mango Juice Smoothie drink which contains no added sugars. This drink has mango and banana puree and juice from apples, lemons and oranges. The muffins have a mild fruity flavor. Each muffin has approximately 105 calories.
Coconut Fruit Smoothie Bran Muffins
1 Naked Mighty Mango Fruit Smoothie (10 oz. container)
1 cup Unprocessed Miller's Wheat Bran
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup preferred sweetener (or sugar)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup natural applesauce
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut (I used Bob's Red Mill)
This is the Mighty Mango Fruit Smoothie drink I used to prepare these muffins. These drinks are sold in the Organic and Health Food Section of my local supermarket.
Add the Mighty Mango Fruit Smoothie drink to the bran. Mix until combined.
In a separate bowl mix together the preferred sweetener (or sugar), vanilla, honey, eggs, vegetable oil, natural applesauce, and sour cream. Stir until combined.
In a large bowl mix the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and baking powder together.
Add the sour cream mixture to the flour mixture.
Then fold in bran mixture and shredded unsweetened coconut. Mix together.
Add muffin liners to a muffin tin. Add batter until about 2/3 full.
