Green smoothies are one of my most favorite breakfasts, especially when I don’t feel like cooking. To mix things up, I added some unsweetened coconut flakes to my usual green smoothie to make what I’m now lovingly referring to as The Green Coconut.
The Green Coconut
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 handful greens (spinach, chard, kale, etc.)
3 frozen peach slices
3 frozen strawberries
5 frozen mango chunks
2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut flakes
Blend it all up, and don’t fret if your blender has a little trouble. I had to stop mine and push down the greens and banana a few times to get it all to mix properly. If you must, add more coconut milk a few splashes at a time, but be careful! Nobody likes a watery smoothie. After you drink it, you’ll feel as serene as the Buddha.
