    can these smoothies be a substitute for breakfast ? Or are they. I need to watch the calories

    Delicious! I admit, I altered it slightly by cutting the ingredients in half and adding a scoop of Orgain Vanilla Bean protein powder, but it tastes fantastic! I love how the dates really added nice flavor and sweetness. This is my new favorite and I’ll share it with my mom, who is getting bored of her usual green smoothie. She loves dates, so this will be perfect. I am really looking forward to trying out all of your green smoothie recipes. Thank you!

    This was really good! I usually like the more fruity and tart smoothies with pineapple and mangos. This was a pleasant surprise and I love the mint!

    Really! Disappointed!! I have made many fruit smoothies and thought I would try a new and differant.. Well I followed the ingredients and my smoothie turned out to minty and bitter.. Not good for sure. Maybe half the mint and no vanilla.. Or maybe this is a girl drink. No guys chimed in besides me…. Lol.

    Do you think almond milk would taste good instead?

    • SGS Rawkstar 3.15.2017 at 3:30 am #

      Hi Shawn,

      Almond milk is a great swap for coconut milk! Go for it!

    You inspired me to start drinking green smoothies 3 years ago and I’ve hardly missed a day – it’s my breakfast of choice. But I’ve been a bit bored with my usual 5 or 6 recipes. I tried this one yesterday and wow! Feeling inspired and loving green smoothies again. Going to Amazon to buy your book next. Thanks for sharing your recipes.
