Triple Berry Coconut Smoothie is pretty and tasty. Flavoured with 3 types of fresh berries, raw coconut slices and yogurt, this healthy smoothie is perfect for breakfast or lunch.
I really love smoothies. When it comes to a quick breakfast or lunch, you can really pack in a lot of nutrition into 1 glass. You can make them out of just about anything, and it’s a great way to get your daily quota of fruits and veggies. I haven’t tried a combination that I didn’t like yet.
With berries in season I just love mixing in all the wonderful varieties. We always have fresh fruit on hand, but frozen fruit is an excellent choice as well. Throw in the fruit, some yogurt, a bit of milk, ice and blend away.
I will often throw in some other goodies like oatmeal, chia seeds or hemp hearts if I want an added boost of protein and nutrition. Experiment with greens too. Avocado is awesome in a smoothie. I love using kale, spinach, broccoli, really anything works. It all depends on the flavour combination you want for the day (or the selection on hand in the fridge).
For this Triple Berry Coconut Smoothie I used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, almond milk, greek yogurt and organic raw dried coconut slices. Have you ever tried them? They are great to snack on, it’s just like eating fresh coconut but more convenient.
Blenders make smoothies quick and easy. This makes a great breakfast, but I usually have it for lunch. It’s perfect to take with me up to the computer as I work away on the blog. I love the fact there are no added sugars, just the great sweetness from the berries.
Smoothies are an excellent way to pack in nutrition. I have even made them the night before and stored them in a glass drinking jar with a lid, when I know I will be in a rush in the morning. No need to skip on nutrition even when you are in a hurry. One of our favourites is my Apple Cottage Cheese Smoothie.
So next time you want a healthy, nutritious, quick and easy meal option give this Triple Berry Coconut Smoothie a try. Delicious goodness in a glass.
