    I added a half cup of oats to this recipe and had it this morning for breakfast. Gave it a lovely nutty flavor and thickness. I feel like I could go all morning. Thanks for the recipes!

      Hi Gracie,

      We love adding oats to our green smoothies! Naturally high in fiber, oats act like a magnet to bad cholesterol helping eliminate it from the body and lowering cholesterol levels. The fiber can also help you stay fuller longer, which keeps your hunger at bay.

    I have a nut allergy. Could I use coconut milk instead of almond milk?

    Hi, I love the idea with Smoothies and want to start and I’m looking forward to try it :-). I’d like to ask – can I use a coconut milk instead of coconut water? (in my country there is simpler to get coconut milk) Thanks and keep doing this, it’s awsome! :-)

      Hey Fateh.

      Every mom and baby nursing experience is different, some babies are sensitive to certain food items. You will just have to wait and see what is best for your bundle of joy!

      As a mom of a two year old who just finished nursing, I love hearing about other moms passionate at breast-feeding and nutrition! You RAWK for giving your baby such an awesome super food! Way to go! :) -Rawkstar Jessie

    I have tried several smoothies from your website so far, but this one is a favorite!!! I didn’t have any coconut so I just added a little extra coconut water and I added in some ground flaxseed and it was great, I will be making this one again. Thanks for all the great recipes.
