Coconut Key Lime Smoothie



I nearly always load my smoothies up with greens, but today I wanted a change of pace. I had a thai coconut on hand and decided to use that. Coconut water and meat are loaded with minerals and key limes are loaded with vitamin c. This was a simple and refreshing smoothie, perfect after my workout. Here is a video showing how to open a thai coconut if you have never done it- http://www.ehow.com/video_2332207_open-thai-coconut.html

Wow does that sound good! Perfect for the whole family - and something I think my little girls would enjoy after playing outside!!! Are there any substitutions if you cannot find a coconut locally?

You might try subbing a can of coconut milk.

That is an amazing smoothie! At home I used to eat the pulp as such and I love it.
