Coconut Water Smoothie


A tropical coconut water smoothie can help you get in your 8 cups of water a day AND satisfy a sweet tooth. I know you might be scared of the kale (I’ve had a few of those kinda smoothies) yet this isn’t it.

For some there are two barriers to get over here: coconut water and kale. Let me try and convince you why you need to get over this and just blend it.

Is drinking coconut water good for you?

Just like most things in life: moderation is key when using coconut water.

Yes, it’s considered nature’s gatorade thanks to the natural electrolytes that replenish a depleted body. Yet you also gotta remember there’s more calories in coconut water than filtered water— 60 calories, to be exact.

So as good as it is at hydrating your body, it’s also good at hiding calories when you might not actually need them.

My advice: it’s cool to have 1-2 cups of coconut water a day, then opt for water for the remaining water intake.

Can I just make this smoothie with water?

You bet you can! Swapping your liquid bases is very easy in any coconut water smoothie.. or beyond. Depending on my needs, I sometimes do the same. Here’s how I decide what to use as a liquid base:

  • Craving a creamy smoothie: nut milk
  • Want a light, refreshing smoothie: plain water
  • Just ran 8 miles and sweated like a beast: coconut water
  • Struggling to stay awake right now: chilled green tea

What else can we use coconut water for?

If you decide to use the coconut water in here (which I hope you do!) you might have some left over and not sure what to do with it. Here’s 3 other ways to use coconut water:

  • pour it in a glass with frozen pineapple
  • chug it right out of the carton and enjoy those electrolytes!
  • freeze into an ice cube tray and make smoothie cubes like we did below using a few other boosters too

I think it’s time to get on with the show and share the recipe. This coconut water smoothie recipe is part of our free 7-Day Smoothie Challenge happening right now. If you’re looking for new recipes and motivation to blend each day, I would love for you to join the free challenge.
