Coconut Banana Smoothie

If you think you’re too busy for a nutritious breakfast, think again. Smoothies are packed with everything you need to start your day right–especially this coconut banana smoothie–and they take only minutes to make. We love this recipe because it incorporates a serving of organic extra virgin coconut oil, a healthy fat which helps kick start the old brain cells after an 8-hour rest. If you like the tart zing of citrus in the morning, fill an ice cube tray with orange or pineapple juice, and pop a couple of cubes into the mixture before blending. 

Preparation Tip: If your mornings are extra crazy you can get your coconut banana smoothie done even faster by placing all of the ingredients (minus the banana) for this nutrient-dense breakfast in a plastic container the night before. Just before you’re ready to leave, pour the ingredients into the blender, add the banana and whip up a delicious breakfast in less than five minutes.

Recipe Notes

This Coconut Banana Smoothie recipe is quite filling and refreshing. Why? Although we can credit most of the benefits to banana, it’s the coconut oil that makes us feel satisfied and full. With a bit of fat stored in your body, which in this smoothie takes the form of coconut oil, you will feel less hungry. In addition, this oil helps promote proper digestion and provides you with more energy, giving you the instant boost you need. Now, you will have more reasons to enjoy a glass of this smoothie!
