Refreshing Kiwi Coconut Smoothie – 2 Recipes!

Kiwi always reminds me that beauty is on the inside and never to judge a book by it’s cover. You cut it open and it just screams “WOW!”. It’s gorgeous and it’s wrapped in a boring brown package, I kind of love that.

Anyways, I couldn’t decide which I liked best between these two green smoothie recipes – one with spinach and the other with cucumber. They both taste great, but the cucumber one tasted especially refreshing with or without protein powder and the one with spinach tasted best with protein powder. So whether you enjoy powders or not, there’s a smoothie for you here.

Dairy free, and it takes “green smoothie” to a whole other meaning with a green fruit, green vegetable and a green healthy fat! Just for fun.

Kiwi Coconut Smoothie #1 (tasted best with protein powder)

Ingredients

2 kiwis*
½ cup (approx. 5 frozen chunks) of chopped fresh or frozen mango
¼ of avocado
1 large handful of spinach
¼ cup lite coconut milk, or 2 tbsp regular coconut milk
½ cup water
Optional – vanilla flavoured protein powder (tested with a vegan vanilla brand)

*slice the kiwi in half, and use a large spoon to scoop out the inside instead of trying to peel it.

Directions – add everything to a blender and add more water if needed for desired consistency.
Recommended to blend all ingredients first, and then if adding a protein powder – add it afterwards and blend again.
