Groovy Green Smoothie Challenge – This week: Coconut!

Key Lime Pie Green Smoothie

Just to recap, last week I asked you to come up with a Green Smoothie recipe with Coconut. Candida diet friendly non the less.

In other words, without sugar, dairy or tropical fruit.

Not an easy task. Hence I was super thrilled when one of my readers allowed me to share her wonderful green smoothie recipe below:

It tastes like key lime pie. Refreshing and nourishing. But it’s also filling.

It wouldn’t be hard to have one of these as a meal replacement once a day. You can easily add some ground buckwheat or flax to get a better full feeling.

Serves: 2
 
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup plain non pasteurized yogurt
  • 3 sticks celery
  • 1 whole cucumber
  • 1 whole lime
  • 1 granny smith apple (take out the seeds)
  • Handful of spinach
  • Pinch of Kale
  • optional: ¼ cup buckwheat or flax
Instructions
  1. Juice all.
  2. Blend into it ¼ cup coconut milk and ¼ cup plain non pasteurized yogurt.
  3. Then add the buckwheat or flax.

I had never thought of adding buckwheat – I think that’s a marvelous idea.

Apart from making it more filling it also adds a lovely nutty flavour to the drink.

And we’ve got another great Green Smoothie submission: Sandi shared this very berry smoothie recipe with us, which I have yet to try.

Sounds lovely (Candida sufferers please leave out the Agave Nectar in this one though).

Thanks so much for participating both :-)

Here’s my latest Green Smoothie with Coconut Milk: The Cucumber Cooler

Cucumber Cooler - Green Smoothie

Very simple to make, yet refreshing and creamy!

Groovy Green Smoothie – Cucumber Cooler
Author: 
Recipe type: smoothie, drink
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
 
Ingredients
  • ⅓ can of coconut milk (with solids)
  • dash of unsweetened almond milk
  • chlorella
  • half an organic cucumber
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 2 heaped tsp desiccated coconut
Instructions
  1. Chop the cucumber into slices or cubes.
  2. Fill the blender with all the ingredients including the cucumber, and blend until everything is smooth and creamy.

I don’t mind the light cucumber flavour, but if you don’t like it, just replace it with a celery stalk. Strangely enough that’s less noticeable.
