The final week of Green Smoothie April is here! I have to admit that week three passed in a haze but I did have one outstanding smoothie recipe that I must share!
I made this AMAZING green smoothie that features a coconut water base and no bananas! I’ve received several requests for green smoothies sans banana and this is the ticket! It’s also dairy and nut free!
Banana-less Coconut Water Green Smoothie
1/2 cup frozen mango
1/2 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 cup coconut water
1/2 cup coconut milk (or almond or soy or sub all coconut water)
1 cup baby kale or baby spinach
Squeeze of lime juice
1 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger (optional)
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend 1-2 minutes or until very well combined.
Yield: 1 smoothie
And here is the recap of week three’s smoothies!
A very simple mix of banana, baby kale, almond butter, dates, cinnamon and coconut milk. Let me tell you, keeping the green smoothie super simple is one of the huge keys to making a good tasting, good looking green smoothie.
It was 32 degrees outside the morning I drank this smoothie! I was freezing photographing it outside. I need spring to be here to stay!!! I mixed this smoothie up by adding fresh mint from my garden. It totally changed the flavor of the smoothie in a great way!
I drank this green smoothie at 7 a.m. and had to make 2 eggs at 10 a.m. I was starving this day!
Blueberry peach green smoothie with my dad’s homemade sourdough, butter and strawberry jam.
You just can’t go wrong with a PB & J + Spinach smoothie.
I can’t remember! I drank this Sunday morning before teaching yoga and as an appetizer for my Easter candy! 🙂
The coconut water smoothie!
