Tropical Lime in the Coconut SmoothieSunday, January 26, 2014
When life gives you snowstorms, go make yourself a tropical smoothie. I went ahead and put some lime in my coconut smoothie and was transported immediately to a warmer time and sunbathing in a Caribbean beach without a care in the world. Ahhh...
This smoothie includes the two tropical fruits I had in my fridge, pineapple and mango. Add some coconut milk to the mix and I have the base of something amazing. If I had shredded coconut, I would have added some to the mix. Top it with lime zest for a burst of brightness and you're going to have yourself a good time.
I also added some chia seeds to add some additional fiber and cashews for a bit of protein. So what are you waiting for, put some lime in your coconut and have yourself a great tropical time!
