Have you ever tried a smoothie made with coconut milk? To be honest, I have never thought of putting coconut milk in a smoothie before I started playing around with this recipe. Now I have discovered that I LOVE coconut milk in smoothies…it is the bomb! Coconut milk makes a smoothie taste creamy, rich and delicious. This recipe for a Strawberry Banana Coconut Milk Breakfast Smoothie has fresh fruit, Blue Dragon Coconut Milk, no added sugar and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. This fast & easy smoothie makes a nutritious breakfast or snack and you can substitute any fresh fruit for the strawberry and bananas. With back to school season upon us, it doesn’t get any easier this quick and delicious-tasting breakfast for busy moms and kids on-the-go.This smoothie was a hit with my whole family and I found it so re-freshing for a mid-afternoon snack as well.
Here is everything needed to make this smoothie….1 cup of ice, 4-5 strawberries, 1/2 banana and 1/2 cup of coconut milk. Feel free to substitute the bananas and strawberries with equal amounts of other fresh fruit depending on what you have on hand and individual preferences. Then blend away in a blender or smoothie maker. This recipe makes one serving, but is easy enough to double or triple if serving more hungry tummies! What surprised me most about this recipe is how no other sweetener, other than fresh fruit, is needed.
