Coconut Almond Butter Smoothie (aka “The Best Smoothie Ever Made”)

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Remember “The Extra Mile” smoothie from Kure that I raved about the other day? Well, I (appropriately) re-named it “The Best Smoothie Ever Made” and successfully recreated it at home. Yay!


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”¦

As you can see this isn’t a low-calorie smoothie, but, instead, it’s more of a meal in smoothie form. With protein, healthy fats, and nutritious leafy greens, it’s the perfect breakfast, lunch, or dinner, especially when it’s too hot to cook. I hope you guys love this smoothie as much as I do!

Questions of the Day

Do you typically drink smoothies as a meal or snack?

In your opinion, is it possible to eat too much nut butter?

What are you drinking this 4th of July weekend?



  1. Oh my gosh, the comments on this post were the best part! The smoothie looks absolutely delicious. You are in no way responsible for what other people consume and I think people questioning your ingredients are fantastic. People need to pay attention to what is right for them, not you or me or Susie Q over there. So the judgement side of comments was unnecessary. I personally have a incredibly low LDL, so I need saturated fat to help my liver produce a bit more of the “bad” cholesterol. And a 700 calorie smoothie is right up my alley. 🙂 But that’s just ME. Happy 4th!! LOVE your blog 🙂

  2. Hi
    Congratulations again on being an Aunty. I am an aunty to 8 and LOVE it. My top tip just be the fun one and they will aways come to you. Bribing with chocolate helps too!!
    I love smoothies but as i am trying to lose weight find they are often high in cals for me. If i have them i have it for breakfast but tend to be hungry after a short time.

  3. i just made a smoothie yesterday with coconut cream in it too! seriously, the best smoothie i’ve ever made as well!!

  4. Tina,

    That smoothie looks delicious! As far as all the calorie/fat concerns–I think the diet/lifestyle you choose is fantastic! You obviously make many great choices that work well for you. Reading your blog and seeing all the wonderful progress you’ve made at Crossfit and how healthy you look is evidence of this. I think so many people try so hard to skimp on fat and calories while eating “fake” nonfat, low calorie, etc. foods and believe this is not healthy in the least bit…and I am in school to be a Registered Dietitian! I Crossfit, too, so love that you include so much about it! Cheers!

  5. I always have smothies for breakfast, my recently discovered allergy to eggs combined with lack of time in the mornings makes them the perfect and healthy breakfast 🙂

  6. I don’t get it. Isn’t this certainly healthier than getting a smoothie at McDonald’s that is made of chemicals and has even more calories?!

  7. Yum! I am getting some dental surgery done in a few weeks and will have to spend at least 3-4 days drinking smoothies as meals. I am adding this to my “Must Make” list! 🙂

  8. Thanks for the cocktail recipe – it was a hit!! We didn’t have pomegranate juice so we added strawberries for the ‘red’ and it was delicious!!

  10. Love the Smoothie! I threw in a frozen banana as well so if you make this smoothie all the time you can have that to add some flavor variety.

  11. Absolutely gorgeous smoothies recipe, thank you so much for sharing (when i first saw kal + almond butter in the same ingredient list I was skeptical to say the least lol) I had it as a snack between breakfast and lunch 🙂 x
