Friends, I’m in love. While coconut has always had a place in my heart, I have had little admiration for coconut water. Until now. Thanks to Whole Foods, I learned about a new way to prepare a green smoothie, and it’s one that I’ll likely be making weekly. Summer will never be gone as long as this bad boy (or girl, no judgement) sticks around!
Coconut Pineapple Green Smoothie
- 6 oz coconut water
- 1 lime, juiced
- 3 kale leaves
- 1/4 whole pineapple (or half a container canned pineapple chunks)
- 1 pear
- small bunch of mint leaves
- 1/4 – 1/2″ jalapeño, seeded (if you’re a heat wuss like me, I only use about a 1/4″ of jalapeño and that’s plenty!)
You are VERY welcome.
