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!
