The last time I went to Costco (an occurring theme in my life) as soon as I walked in there were loads of coconut water. “NEW!” “ON SALE!” Naturally, I HAD to buy some. Coconut water is supposedly healthy…with antioxidants and all that jazz…I had been meaning to try some.
This is something that always happens. You buy a 1,239,012,839,012 pack of something at Costco because you can’t resist and then end up hating it. I LOVE coconut, how could I hate it in water form? I don’t even know how to describe the flavor…just weird. Doesn’t quench thirst at all.
I was hatching a plan on how to pawn the stuff off to my friends when genius Jordan said, “Just use it to make one of your smoothies.”
So I give you…Peach-raspberry Coconut water Smoothie
I was nervous…but it ended up tasting MUCH better than the water by itself. I’m considering it even healthier than the water alone since all I added was fruit.
Raspberry-Peach Smoothie with Coconut Water
- 1 banana
- 1 handful (about a cup) frozen peaches
- 1 handful-ish (maybe half a cup? Wing it) frozen raspberries
- 1 Vita Coco Coconut Water (11.1 ounces)
Throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
Makes 1 really large smoothie, or 2 smaller servings.
P.S…Happy Leap Day!
