Coconut Green Smoothie

Some people get weirded out by green food, but not me. Green is my favorite color and I love green foods! I can’t think of a green food that I don’t like. Well, unless the green food is green because of mold or lots of dye. I like fresh green foods:)

I make green smoothies all of the time. I usually make my standard Green Smoothie recipe, but last week I decided it was time to mix things up. I made a Coconut Green Smoothie and holy moly is it good!

I made the smoothie in our new KitchenAid Green Apple 5 Speed Blender.I LOVE the green color and I love the blender. It makes smoothie making a breeze! And yes, it crushes ice. You don’t even have to shake the blender. It does it all on it’s own. And you won’t find any chunks of spinach in your green smoothie either. The KitchenAid Blender works it’s magic and really makes a SMOOTH smoothie. I love our green machine!

To make the Coconut Green Smoothie, I combined coconut milk, plain Greek yogurt, spinach, a banana, a green apple, unsweetened coconut, and ice in the jar of our blender. I pushed liquify and let the blender go to town!

The results? A dreamy Coconut Green Smoothie. This smoothie is great for breakfast or a snack. I added a pinch of shaved unsweetened coconut to the top of my smoothie for fun! Coconut lovers will go crazy for this easy smoothie!

I shared my smoothie with Caleb and he loved it! Gotta love the green mustache! I guess the little pea likes green foods too! Yay!

  1. My blender is about 25 years old and still going but a new one would be much nicer and probably make everything smoother.

  2. How inspired is adding coconut to my favorite smoothie ingredients? What a great idea! My usual is spinach, banana, Granny Smith apple, arugula, and sometimes cucumber slices, maybe a mushroom or two, and/or a few strawberries. Thanks, Maria!

  3. This looks delicious! And the blender color is beautiful!
    Have fun in California, can’t wait to hear all about it!

  4. I love most fruit smoothies esp. blueberry-lemon but any berry type usually ok as long as not too sweet. Not that ambitious yet to try the veggie type.

  5. We love blueberries, handful assorted frozen fruit, banana, oatmeal, dollop of coconut oil, yogurt blended into a smoothie.

  6. I love that green color – so pretty. What a coincidence too that it would look absolutely perfect in my kitchen ; )

  7. I love to just dump everything that is fruity, juicy, yogurty into a blender with some ice, a little raw honey, and a touch of vanilla. Smoothie goodness! Oh, yeah, and some babyfood of veggies I don’t like.

  8. Love the smoothie and the blender!! I am loving the green color these days!! Plans of using it for my patio decor and my bathroom redo! 🙂

  9. Gosh, I haven’t made one for a long time. (Since my blender broke!) I used to make one with fresh blueberries, almonds & ice. It was fabulous. I used some protein powder in it as well.

  10. Great giveaway!! Love the discription that you will not find chunks of Spinach. ;o) Need a blender that will do that!

  11. I am going to try this. Green is my favorite color too!!!!!!!!!!!! It sounds great. That color is simply awesome!!!! Great to be a part of your wonderful site and LOVE your name!!!

  12. I’d love to win this so I can continue to make AWESOME SMOOTHIES! My blender recently broke : ( . Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.

  13. I’m having a week of smoothies to play around with silk soymilk and I love the idea of adding coconut into my green smoothie! Sounds so tasty!

  14. Wow!! What a great giveaway! Thanks so much for this opportunity, Maria!

    🙂 This would be perfect for my college dorm next fall! Going to miss the blender we have here at home…

  15. Looks super yummy. We make a spinach one with mango and pineapple. Ma new blender would be awesome, as my took ours!

  16. I have been wanting to try a green smoothie and this looks perfect. One question, is it canned coconut milk or out of the carton? Thanks!

  17. I live this blender, it’s color and the recipe. My blender is a cheap big box store machine which I have been forced to exchange for a new one every couple of months as motor burns out. We love our morning smoothies, and evening cocktails.

  18. Love the green blender and use spinach in my smoothies but have never tried coconut milk. Will definitely try this recipe!

  19. Daughter’s blender just fell apart, this would be amazing to win for her! He boys love green smoothies already,this sounds yummy

  20. Great looking smoothy and it sounds tasty, too! The KitchenAid blender is so pretty! Oh, to have a blender to make smoothies with! Love your blog.

  21. I have to be really careful with “green” I take blood thinners and not allowed to have any vitamin K products (but I do anyway)

  22. I love green smoothies! I have never added apple to my smoothies because I’m afraid my blender won’t chop the apple fine enough, looks like this blender would do the job!

  23. Okay call me crazy but I am calling my friend to borrow her blender. Does anyone know the recipe that you add cabbage to it really tastes like punch kind of I had it once and it was to die for. I am now thinking I would drink all kinds of things if I had a blender!! I am definitely gonna try this recipe when I get Elizabeth’s blender. She says that it is probably 25 yrs old so hope I don’t blow my house up!! LOL..

  24. I love smoothies generally. They make a great quick meal, and when they’re healthy they can be very satisfying. Yum!

  25. My favorite color is green, too! The brighter, the better! 😀
    And I *LOVE* coconut anything. Gonna try this today! Thanks!

  26. Love you recipes. Don’t have time to follow all the blogs I like. But my biggest problem is with American sites and companies who try to lure you with free gifts and giveaways, then in fine print to hidden (linked) terms and conditions say these are for US citizens only. THAT STINKS! I am a Canadian with American cousins. Even many US TV shows acknowledge us as “family” and their offers extend to Canada. You come up here for fishing, hunting, skiing; your companies come up here and take over Canadian companies … But we are almost ALWAYS excluded in your special offers! Why can’t you just say so UP FRONT! Why do we have to search out this information? What’s the big secret?

  27. yumyumyum! thank you! will be making this soon!

    (and in case anyone is interested- just to let you know if you didn’t already- unfortunately chobani uses gmo ingredients. i know lots of people don’t care one way or another about gmos, but i prefer to avoid them as much as possible, so just want to make sure if anyone else does too, then be sure to buy a usda organic or “gmo free verified” brand of greek yogurt.)

  28. I love starting my day with green smoothies, kale and spinach are my favorite greens and any fruit except bananas. I usually add Chai or Flax Seeds for the added fiber. Hope you are having a good weekend.

  29. Hi, just wanted to add a tip. I usually freeze my bananas so that when I make my smoothies I don’t have to add ice! I also freeze spinach, kale and grapes to add to smoothies. Love all your recipes. Thanks for sharing them with us!

  30. This recipe does sound delicious. I do have one complaint, though. Why is it that smoothie recipes rarely come with nutritional information. For me it is important to know protein, Carbs, fat and fiber content but I have a hard time finding a recipe for a smoothie that gives this information.
