The original list of ingredients included coconut meat, but I didn’t have any on hand, and I actually wasn’t sure how it would work—bust open a coconut and shave some off? I dunno, but it sounded like a lot of work, so I swapped the coconut meat (and coconut water) for coconut cream, which worked really well. It made the smoothie incredibly creamy and added a ton of wonderful coconut flavor to it. Mmm, coconut…
- 1/2 cup coconut cream
- 4 tbsp almond butter
- 2 cups torn kale
- 3/4 cup Silk coconut milk
- 1 tbsp honey
- 5 ice cubes
Directions: Combine ingredients in a blend until smooth.
