This is my new favorite smoothie. I got the recipe from a raw vegan guy who makes YouTube videos on juicing and smoothies. I find him very entertaining and all of his juice and smoothie recipes I've tried have been good.
- Water from one coconut (use the coconut meat too if you're not worried about the fat content)
- 1 banana
- 2-3 pitted dates (depending on how sweet you like it)
- 1-2 handfuls of spinach
On the suggestion of a Whole Foods employee I used a hammer. It worked, but with every crack of the hammer, the outer flesh of the coconut was flung onto the counter, backsplash, my face, my husbands face. I guess I need more practice.
Don't let the green scare you. It's really delicious.
