Green Smoothie of the Day

Introducing the Strawberry-Banana-Coconut GREEN SMOOTHIE Recipe

What you need:

  • Meat and 2-4 ounces of water from one young, Thai coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen organic strawberries
  • 1 Frozen Banana
  • 2 cups or handfuls of fresh, organic baby spinach (or other green)

Creating this smoothie definitely takes a bit more arm muscle than most. Add all the ingredients into your blender  and blend until the smoothie is creamy. Add ice if you prefer your smoothie on the real cold side.

I absolutely love coconut water. It is full of electrolytes and puts an extra pep in your step.  You can find young Thai coconuts at places such as Whole Foods.
They are a bit difficult to open so here is a video on the proper technique:
*I also think adding pineapple to this would be delicious!
