Notes:

  • Although the recipe is filling enough for a meal in itself, you may add some vanilla protein powder especially if trying to manage your weight.
  • Coconut water may also be used to thin out the smoothie if you desire a more ‘coconut-like’ taste.
  • For extra heart-healthy benefits, add 1-2 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil prior to blending. This will not alter the taste.
