Coconut and lime go together like peanut butter and jelly! But I was really only eating the lovely combo in warm, savory Thai food. Then it dawned on me. Obviously this would be amazing as an ice cold smoothie in the morning! So with a little help and inspiration from my new Thrive Energy Cookbook I went for it. This is basically coconut key lime pie blended up into a healthy breakfast smoothie.
This goes down easily on its own, but can be spiced up with a sprinkle of homemade hemp granola!
You should know that I never list “organic” in the ingredients because I assume you already know to use organic as much as possible. No worries if that isn’t feasible for you – it will still be delicious!
the coconut lime cream smoothie
Sip on this dream team, coconut and lime! This smoothie is heavenly and tastes like dessert, but there’s nothing to feel guilty about.
- 1 frozen banana
- 2 kaffir lime leaves, fresh or frozen
- 2 tbsp unsweetened flaked or shredded coconut
- 3 tbsp coconut cream
- 1 tbsp coconut butter
- zest of 1/2 a lime
- 1 C coconut water
- 1 tsp agave nectar
- 1 C ice cubes
Mix all the ingredients together in a high-powered blender.
It’s optional, but how could you not want to top your smoothie with some homemade hemp granola and a little drizzle of agave.
