Not only will this green smoothie win you over with the taste, but you can feel good knowing you’re raking in the health benefits with every sip.

    Can you use coconut water instead of coconut milk?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hey Maggie! You can def use coconut water in place of coconut milk but just know that your smoothie won’t be as creamy and may have a slightly different taste. If you’re concerned about the fat content of full-fat coconut milk, you could try reduced-fat coconut milk or use half water and half milk. 🙂

  2. Don Weber says:

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but how do you measure a cup and a half of spinach leaves? Is it a certain weight that I can use a kitchen scale for? Or do you just cram as many leaves as you can into a cup?
    Thanks,
    Don

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Don,

      There are no dumb questions here!

      We like to measure our spinach by one full handful is a cup. So I would do about one and a half handfuls for this recipe.

      Hope that helps!

  3. Debra says:

    Can you make this without medjool dates? I don’t have any. Thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Debra,

      Yes you can totally leave out the dates if you do not have them. They are mostly in the recipe to add in some sweetness to your smoothie. You can add in some honey to replace the dates.

      Hope that helps!

  4. Marie says:

    I don’t have any mint so I was thinking about mint extract. Any idea how much?

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Marie,

      We have never tried mint extract in this recipe, but I think that would be a good idea. I would only start with one drop and taste and add more for the desired taste.

      Hope that help!

  5. Mary says:

    Do you have a good substitute for the banana in this recipe? I am allergic to bananas!

  6. Christie says:

    I thought this was delicious! We have tons of mint growing in our yard and can’t use enough of it. I used a very scant 1/2 cup of mint because I sometimes find it too overpowering. However, I think it was perfect! I actually threw this into a bowl and added a few dark chocolate chips. It was like eating mint chocolate chip ice cream! I might add less coconut milk next time and leave it a bit thicker to eat from a bowl. An awesome and refreshing dessert that really satisfied my sweet tooth without being unhealthy. I will make this again! Thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Christie,

      Yum, love that you turned this recipe into a decadent smoothie bowl!

  7. Lynn says:

    Do you folks use pure coconut milk out of a can (like the one used for curry) or drinkable coconut milk from a carton (ie like almond and cashew milk)?

  8. Manju says:

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

  9. Jaime says:

    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!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Jaime,

      So happy to hear you loved this recipe. Adding protein powder is a great option. Make sure and reach back out + let us know how your mom enjoyed this recipe!

  10. Phyllis says:

    I make your smoothies all the time, but this time my husband raved about it. I loved it, too.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Phyllis,

      YAY! Thanks for sharing the green smoothie love, and sharing this recipe with your husband!
