Get ready to cheer, coconut lovers! Our Coconut Milk Smoothie is gonna knock your socks off! Not only does it offer all the sweet, creamy flavor that you’ve come to adore, but it also contains two added superfood ingredients– banana and spinach! Plus, at only 134 calories per serving, what’s not to love?! It is one of our best smoothie recipes.
A coconut milk smoothie is an excellent option for vegans and those choosing to go dairy-free for other reasons. Coconut milk contains healthy fat and is a great alternative to cow’s milk. It also gives your smoothie a creamier texture than almond milk, juice, or water. You’ll swear you are enjoying a thick, creamy milkshake, minus all the unhealthy ingredients.
Delicious smoothies are perfect for a liquid breakfast, a mid-morning snack, a post-workout pick-me-up, or a dessert substitution. They taste sweet because they are usually made with fruit, but they are much lower in calories. When you “hide” extra healthy ingredients like the spinach found in this smoothie, it packs an even more powerful health punch. Try experimenting with green food additions in your smoothie to get the greatest benefits. This is also a great way to sneak veggies into a child’s diet.
