Last weekend the stars aligned and my birthday happened to overlap with the NYC Green Festival. I knew there would be tons of vegan and gluten-free snacks to sample (OMG the snacks!) but on the way to the festival I had one thing on my mind- getting a Kale Colada from Juice Generation. I LOVE this smoothie because you get to pick out your own coconut, which also doubles as the cup!
Today’s recipe is inspired by my favorite Juice Generation smoothie. If you have limes leftover from Cinco de Mayo this Coconut Lime Green Smoothie is the perfect use for them!
Coconut Lime Green Smoothie
makes 1 large or 2 medium smoothies
What you’ll need:
- 1 young thai coconut (use meat and water)
- 2 cups of spinach
- 2 dates
- juice of 1 lime
- Open coconut, empty water into blender and scrape out the meat.
- Blend all ingredients until completely smooth.
