Tropical Smoothie

A simple, delicious, nourishing smoothie. The avocado adds a beautiful silky texture as well as filling good fats and loads of nutrition.

  • 250 ml coconut water (1 cup)

  • Leftovers can be frozen into little cups or ice-block moulds for a fast, healthy snack another day.

Notes

Green boost

If you want a green boost, add in a handful of baby spinach (the smoothie in the photo has this).  Spinach is pretty flavourless so it hides very well behind most flavours in a smoothie.  Fresh mint is also lovely with this flavour combo.

Change the colour

Add raspberries to turn it pink.

Add protein (for more sustenance)

I often add a scoop of 180 Nutrition Superfood Protein powder (coconut flavour). They have both a whey protein and vegan (dairy-free) options. Shop for it HERE.

Coconut-free

Replace the coconut water with a nut milk.
