My brother went to Costco yesterday and brought home coconut water. (Read here about how to choose the best coconut water).
I've never used coconut water in a smoothie before and thought today was the perfect day to try something new. I'm so glad I did, because the coconut water along with the frozen fruit I chose, is a perfect tropical combination! (And as you can see in the photo, we still have snow on the ground here. I have been anticipating summer for so long, maybe if I drink tropical smoothies and wear summer clothes spring will come sooner?! Lol.)
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/4 cup frozen mango
- 5-6 frozen strawberries
- 1 tablespoon collagen (omit if vegan)
- Stevia to taste
- coconut water
Directions: Add your frozen fruit and collagen to your blender along with 1/4 cup coconut water and Blend. Continue adding coconut water until you reach desired consistency (I think I added about 3/4 cup of coconut water total). Add stevia to taste, blend again and you're done! Enjoy!
What are you most looking forward to about summer? I would have to say green grass and warm sunshine!
