I found the banana a bit overpowering. If I make this again I will use only half a frozen banana to balance out the blueberry flavoring.-27 Mar 2016

The Smoothie Queen did it again by creating yet another delicious, vitamin filled, and dairy free smoothie with a perfect balance of flavors. I used a mix of frozen berries instead of just blueberries. Thank you, Alli, for the recipe!-18 Mar 2016


Berry Coconut Water Smoothie

Make this delicious Berry Coconut Water Smoothie by blending up five different types of antioxidant-rich berries with coconut water and creamy, dairy-free coconutmilk yogurt alternative. It's a five-minute, nutrient-packed dairy-free drink to whip up whenever you want a quick, plant-based pick-me-up!

(This post is sponsored by So Delicious®. As always, all opinions are my own.)

Coconut water is one of the most refreshing ingredients and can be hydrating. I love sipping on it throughout the day whenever I'm looking for a drink that's a little more exciting than plain water.

Sometimes even coconut water isn't going to do the trick, and then I step up my game with this sweet and tart berry smoothie. This flavor-packed drink has five (yep, five!) different types of nutrient-packed berries: goji berries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. It's packed with plant-based antioxidants and phytonutrients.

To make the texture extra creamy and delicious, I also add in a banana and a scoop of So Delicious® Coconutmilk Yogurt Alternative. This is my favorite dairy-free substitute for yogurt and it works great in any smoothie recipe that you want to make vegan and dairy-free. Another bonus is that So Delicious® is a part of Danone North America, a Certified B Corporation®, which means they're committed to high standards for their workers, the community, and the environment.


Berry Coconut Smoothie

I am a big fan of the smoothie, and this one happens to be my favorite right now. I love coconut anything, and add some pineapple and berries, and I am in heaven. Berry Coconut smoothies are refreshing and you would never know that there is a generous handful of healthy greens in there. This is a great one if you are trying to get your kids on the green smoothie train. It keeps its pinky-purple color and they will have no idea that they are drinking bunches of spinach. Any extras are really good frozen in popsicle molds for an after school snack.

If you don’t have or cannot find coconut butter, no worries – you can skip it altogether and add some shredded coconut or a few Tablespoons of coconut oil at the end of blending. I happen to love coconut butter (sometimes called manna) and use it on my toast. It is delicious and worth trying. I really happen to like the little packets of coconut butter, and buy them whenever I see them.

Just a quick reminder that I have 2 amazing giveaways going on right now. $75 gift card to Whole Foods and a Journey Shawl from KOOSHOO! Click on over and enter!

1 cup coconut water
1 cup fresh pineapple (frozen is fine)
1 bag frozen mixed berries
1 handful spinach
2 Tablespoons coconut manna (or coconut butter)

Coconut manna can solidify, so I put the container in some hot water for about 10 minutes until it loosens up and is scoopable. I love this stuff.


Berry Chocolate Coconut Manna Smoothie

This Berry Chocolate Coconut Manna Smoothie will become your new favorite smoothie combo with a secret ingredient that makes it taste like dessert!

I love this product so much, so I&rsquove teamed up with Nutiva to give FIVE of you the chance to win a $250 shopping spree on Nutiva&rsquos website! Enter to win here!

How often do you drink smoothies? Hopefully every day! Our family lives by &ldquo a smoothie a day keeps the doctor away!&rdquo Do you find yourself reaching for the same old flavor combination day in and out, though? How do you mix it up?

We make Cotton Candy, Tropical Lassi, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Mango Spiced weekly, but recently I discovered Nutiva Squeezable Organic Chocolate Coconut Manna and it&rsquos changed my smoothie game by adding in a whole new flavor dimension.

Since I was a kid I&rsquove been in love with Chocolate Hazelnut spread, but I know how terrible all the sugar can be for you in a single serving. Nutiva&rsquos Squeezable Organic Chocolate Coconut Manna only has 1 gram of sugar per serving making it a perfect addition to your morning smoothie. It&rsquos also incredibly easy to blend up no matter the strength of your blender as it literally melts when you start whizzing it up making your smoothie even creamier and full of light coconut and chocolate flavor.

You might not think of adding berries, but trust me, it&rsquos a total game changer. The combination of berries (I used frozen strawberries and raspberries, but you can use any combo you love including blueberries, blackberries and more) with the Chocolate Coconut Manna is heavenly. I add a banana for natural sweetness, cinnamon for an additional depth of flavor, a handful of frozen cauliflower to get a vegetable inside and use any kind of milk I&rsquove got on hand including cow&rsquos milk, oat, coconut or almond. After you blend it up, this Berry Chocolate Coconut Manna Smoothie becomes as thick and creamy as any milkshake you ever tried and your body will feel good head to toe!

Want to double down on perfection? Top your smoothie with a handful of your favorite cereal or granola and top it with a big squeeze of Nutiva Squeezable Organic Chocolate Coconut Manna for the ultimate treat. It&rsquos delectable!

Berry Coconut Protein Shake Just Like the Smoothie Shops Make

Back in 2008, a little dairy-free ice cream brand emerged, called Sid Wiggy’s Coconut Creations. They had cool flavors like Vanilla Voodoo, Caribbean Coffee, and Coconut’n Else. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to scale up in distribution, so the company didn’t last long. But they did share this favorite berry coconut protein shake recipe with us, which can still be enjoyed any day. It’s a “healthy smoothie meets indulgent milkshake” treat that happens to be dairy-free and vegan! Today I’ve updated this old recipe and post for your enjoyment. I’ve also added tips and options to suit various dietary needs and the ingredients you have on hand.

What is a smoothie bowl

A smoothie bowl is pretty much the smoothie you sip from a cup but placed in a bowl instead. It is primarily made of fresh fruits and veggies or frozen fruits. To give it a thicker consistency often times avocados, oats or yogurts are used as add-ins. Smoothie bowls are thicker than the regular smoothie you drink and thus placed in a bowl and served with a spoon instead. Smoothie bowls can be topped with additional ingredients such as nuts, chia, coconuts, granola, and more fresh fruits.

Are smoothie bowls actually healthy?

Depending on what&rsquos added in your smoothie will determine how healthy your smoothie is. If a smoothie is made entirely of fresh fruit and veggies then it is absolutely healthy. Adding healthy milk like unsweetened almond milk or some Greek yogurt will make your smoothie bowl recipe a very nutritious one. Definitely avoid adding high sugar juices as a base.

What makes smoothies thicker

Your smoothies bowl recipe isn&rsquot as thick as you would like it to be? There are a few things you can add that will make your smoothie thicker. Try using frozen fruits instead of fresh ones. Get in the habit of not throwing out overripe bananas and freeze them instead. They come in handy for smoothies. Use avocado for a thicker and smoother smoothie. Other ingredients that would be great to use to thicken your smoothie are oats, ice, whey protein, pumpkin puree, nut butter, tofu, and yogurt.

Berry Coconut Smoothie

Get ready coconut lovers to taste this refreshing Berry Coconut Smoothie.

Coconut milk contains healthy fat and a good alternative for those choosing to go dairy-free.

Perfect for breakfast, a mid-morning snack, or a dessert substitution.

The coconut milk in a smoothie has lots of really good-for-you properties. Not to mention, the tropical flavor.

You don’t need a lot of coconut milk to make your smoothie coco-nutty. I generally like to use at least a third of a cup of coconut milk.

Add more milk if you want your smoothie to be creamier.

The coconut milk and the berries make this smoothie the perfect treat. Enjoy a smoothie with healthy ingredients.


Coconut Milk / Coconut Oil

According to the BBC’s website, Good Food, “Coconuts contain significant amounts of fat, but unlike other nuts, they provide fat that is mostly in the form of medium chain saturated fatty acids (MCFAs) in particular, one called lauric acid.

Lauric acid is converted in the body into a highly beneficial compound called monolaurin, an antiviral and antibacterial that destroys a wide variety of disease causing organisms. It is therefore now thought that consumption of coconut milk may help protect the body from infections and viruses.”

Coconut milk also contains bone building phosphorous and soothing magnesium, making it one of my favorite kitchen ingredients.
