Raspberry-Peach Smoothie made with Coconut Water

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.

The stuff they sell in major bulk at Costco.

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.”

Bananas and frozen raspberries in the blender, with frozen peaches hiding on the bottom.

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.

Recipe

Raspberry-Peach Smoothie with Coconut Water
