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!

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

    ๐Ÿ™‚ This would be perfect for my college dorm next fall! Going to miss the blender we have here at home…

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

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

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

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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)

  9. 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!

  10. 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..
