Had a last minute request by my mom for a breakfast change the other week, so I got resourceful with what I had in the fridge and tried this smoothie combination. Now she does not like coconut whatsoever, but so far she has enjoyed all of my recipes that use coconut milk and coconut oil, and she even loves the paleo-approved coconut macaroons that I give her. Of course if I told her there was coconut in them she probably would not enjoy them, but what she doesn't know doesn't hurt her, right? Anyways, I say all of that because this is a coconut milk based smoothie, and you can barely taste the coconut. I made this one for myself as a treat last week and I am obsessed. This smoothie is incredible! I highly suggest using the SO Delicious Original Culinary Coconut Milk and you can even get the light version if you want less fat. It is not stored in the refrigerated aisles at the grocery store, but with the canned coconut milk wherever that aisle is at in your local store. This recipe makes one serving, and the water amount is an estimate; add more or less as you wish to make the smoothie less thick. My mom absolutely loved this smoothie for breakfast, so I went ahead and prepped a few more to put in the freezer. If you freeze this I suggest taking it out first thing in the morning to let it thaw out, so you can actually enjoy it as a smoothie. If not, grab a spoon and enjoy an ice cream like treat for breakfast. Either way though, this was by far the easiest breakfast prep I have ever made! If you forget to meal prep you can quickly make this the night before or in the morning if you have the time.
