Triple Coconut Energizing Green Smoothie

by Hillary on July 14, 2014

It is easy to “overdo it” in the summer — a serving of Mom’s peach blueberry cobbler here, a Kona coffee ice cream sandwich there, and regular Monday Moscow Mules to survive the unbearably hot nights.

But for me, these indulgences are how I treat myself in conjunction with my healthier habits. Not only is it about taking my morning probiotic, enjoying green kombucha, and aiming to get a solid night’s rest; but treating myself to a pedicure or slice of flourless chocolate cake is my way giving my body and mind a bit of TLC.

When I have overdone it on the frozen dark chocolate chips, I know I have the power to make my next decision a healthier one. Just as I do, ZICO® Premium Coconut Water™ believes in the power of small changes and the strength in hitting the reset button.

Rather than getting down on myself for one too many sweet indulgences, I chose to live positively and thoughtfully. An easy way to do such is by whipping up an energizing green smoothie with ZICO® Premium Coconut Water™ – it is naturally loaded with electrolytes, including as much potassium as a banana in a single bottle.

Triple Coconut Energizing Green Smoothie

Serves 1

  • 1/2 c. ZICO® Premium Coconut Water™
  • 1/2 c. unsweetened coconut milk beverage
  • 1/2-3/4 frozen banana
  • 2 c. baby spinach
  • 1 T unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tsp. chia seeds

Mix all ingredients together in a blender. Pour into a serving glass; enjoy cold.

ZICO® Natural is an excellent ingredient for smoothies, as is ZICO® Chocolate – mixed with cold-brewed coffee and creamy coconut milk, now that is a party in the blender!

Don’t get held up on one too many summer indulgences. Life is short. Crack Life Open™, get revitalized, and hydrate up this summer with ZICO® Premium Coconut Water™.

Visit ZICO.com to find ZICO® in a store near you or to order online.

Yum! I’m on a juicing kick, but a green smoothie could be in order too.
