    Smoothie Recipe #1: Strawberry Banana Coconut Smoothie-Shake

    I just made the best smoothie-shake. Awwww yeah. It’s called a smoothie-shake because I couldn’t resist adding a little ice cream to this one. I don’t normally do that, but mmmm was it good.


    Smoothie Recipe #1: Strawberry Banana Coconut Smoothie-Shake
    Ingredients listed in order of placement in the blender. I did two rounds of the “smoothie” setting on my Blendtec blender for this one. I needed more fluid, but I loved the final texture, so for me it was worth the extra blending time.
    Recipe type: Dessert
    Serves: 1 generous serving
    • 6-8 oz white grape juice (maybe a little more if it’s too thick)
    • 1 fresh banana
    • 5 big frozen strawberries
    • big handful of ice
    • small handful of shredded coconut
    • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream (that’s why I added the word “shake” on the end! I’m sure you can leave this out if you want it to be healthier)

    I’m going to start sharing more smoothie “recipes” with you…I’ve had several requests, so I’ll try to keep them coming fairly regularly.
