Not just a summer smoothie, green smoothies are packed full of nutrients to boost you all year round. Here the coconut oil creates a creamy texture without adding an obvious flavour so the greens and pineapple/banana speak for themselves.
The coconut oil offers a super smooth consistency even with kale, however if you don’t have a high powered blender you may prefer to substitute spinach which isn't so fibrous for the best texture.
Recipe: Tropical Green Smoothie
- 2 cups coconut water (or plain water)
- 2 cups packed kale
- 2 tbs melted coconut oil
- ¾ cup pineapple chunks or 1 large banana.
Blend everything together until as smooth as possible.
You could add part ice for immediate chill. This will be thicker so a little extra water may be needed.
Chill to serve.
