Coconut Berry Smoothie – Just 3 ingredients! High in potassium, vitamin C and electrolytes, this beautiful dairy free smoothie is delicious, hydrating, and the perfect “pick me up.
We love smoothies in this house. I especially love them because they are quick and easy. On school days when we are running tight on time, it’s easy to throw a bunch of healthy ingredients into the blender. It’s also quick and easy to slurp down. It’s a great way to get a lot of nutrition and still get out the door on time. Today we made a Coconut Berry Smoothie. The kids downed these in mere minutes and, of course, I thought it was pretty tasty too!
Nature’s Sports Drink
I used coconut water instead of non-dairy milk in this pink beauty. Coconut water is very hydrating and has an amazing amount of potassium. It also boasts plenty of electrolytes and minerals, making it a better choice than store bought sports drinks. Just be sure to buy coconut water with no added sugars or juices.
Quick and Easy
With only 3 ingredients, this Coconut Berry Smoothie couldn’t be any easier. The hardest thing you have to do is peel the banana. I’m pretty sure we all have time to do at least that. Throw it all in the blender and purée. Easy!
I don’t think I have to tell you how nutritious berries are, right? I used mixed berries in this smoothie – a combination of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. This combo not only makes a nutritious smoothie, but a darn pretty one as well. I love that bright purplish-pink color!
