Creamy Coconut Smoothie
This smoothie is absolutely delicious – especially for anyone who loves something sweet. I love to make this for breakfast when I have a little bit of extra time in the mornings. Typically, when I am in a hurry, I prepare my smoothie ingredients in a freezer bag the night before. That way I just throw it in the blender with some water or non-dairy milk, blend and go. But because I like adding fresh avocado and coconut meat, I give myself a few extra minutes to make this recipe.
In a hurry? Try swapping coconut and avocado for a frozen banana. It will thicken the consistency and add great flavour.
