is adding coconut water to my smoothies! Move over almond milk it’s all about the coconut water this season.
And I’m gonna go out on the limb by saying this but I think I have my new go-to smoothie recipe.
The strong tastes of coconut + the fruity flavors + tons of protein = perfect drink for breakfast, lunch, post-workout, on a hot summer day, or you could add some alchi and make an tasty healthy cocktail ;)
Summertime Coconut Smoothie
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1 1/2 cup frozen fruit (I used a mixed bag full of pineapple, peaches, strawberries, and mango)*
- 1/2 cup fresh strawberries*
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
- 1 handful fresh spinach
*I added 1 1/2 cups frozen fruit plus some fresh strawberries but you could use either fresh or frozen fruit. If it’s all fresh fruit, just make sure to add some ice cubes in the blender.
Add all the ingredients to the blender, pour into a glass, and enjoy!

On a separate note, if you’re looking for a great at-home workout, here’s a good one that I found on Pinterest. This workout has you going from one move to the next so you never get bored. And it’s nice already having a workout planned so you can mindlessly complete each move while also watching TV. I did this workout yesterday and included 20 minutes of running outside and then completed 2 rounds of the workout.
Done and done.
