Coconut Green Smoothie


It's getting pretty hot here in La Paz already, so smoothies are making their way back into our diets.  And I am all about getting my vegetable servings in where I can. I actually love green smoothies as they are refreshing, nutritious,  healthy, & delicious-- you can't even taste the greens. 
Often I like to eat smoothies with a spoon with some added toppings, yum! Smoothies are great too as they are so versatile-- you can omit something if your not a big fan or substitute what you have on hand. For example, not a fan of avocado, try Greek yogurt. Don't have bananas, opt for some other tropical frozen fruit. (Although keep in mind the banana helps sweeten it & is actually one of my favorite natural ways to sweeten my breakfasts & baked goods. Give this one a whirl & let me know your special takes on your favorite green smoothie, enjoy!
