Pink Coconut Green Smoothie

Ingredients for Pink Coconut Green Smoothie

I finally managed to get hold of some Chi 100% Raw Organic Coconut Water! We found it at Ocado this week. It’s pink due to the activity of the antioxidants in the young Thai Nam-Hon Coconuts and is sustainably produced, fairly traded and unheated with no additives whatsoever. It is also naturally sweet and not made from concentrate. For an added bonus, the company donate to Drop4Drop who provide waterwells where needed most.

The drawback is that it is more expensive and has to be used within 24 hours, although I’m on my second day and it is still fine. For me, it is this week’s treat.

(Oh, and if only it didn’t come in a plastic bottle).

I decided to use some in my breakfast smoothie, which is rich in antioxidants, electrolytes, protein, healthy fats, B vitamins  and selenium from the Brazil nuts!

Coconut water makes a lighter smoothie and is a much healthier and tastier alternative to sugary, chemical-laden so-called energy or post-workout drinks.

All ingredients are organic.

Ingredients

1 Small Glass Chi 100% Raw Coconut Water

1 Ripe Banana

3 Romaine leaves

2″ Cucumber, peel left on, chopped

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds*

1 Tbsp CoYo Plain Yogurt

1 Tbsp Golden Linseeds

3 Brazil Nuts

1 or 2 Medjool Dates, pitted

1 Tsp Juicemaster Wheatgrass Powder*

….

Blend, add ice if preferred and enjoy!

      1. I have tried coconut water a few times and enjoyed it, but not sure if it was pure raw and organic. It came from a Chinese Supermarket…..? And I have never EVER tried those disgusting energy drinks! I reckon if you “need” one of those, you need a Boot Camp style diet forced upon you, haha!
