Coco-Lime Smoothie

Favorite smoothie recipe of all time?

Probably this one.

I tend to make a variation of the smoothie all the time, but this time I added a few different ingredients and let me just tell you... it turned out pretty darn delicious! And, because I always make similer smoothies to this, I'm always stumped on names. Coco-Lime? Sure, that will do!

You'll love that it has Sacha Inchi, which is a great source of a plant-based complete protein. Mixed with healthy fats from avocado and coconut, this smoothie will keep you satiated!
 

What You'll Need

1 handful baby spinach
1/2 small avocado
2 tbsp coconut shavings
1/2 lime, peeled
1 tbsp MRM sacha inchi powder*
1/4 cup harmless harvest coconut water
1/4 cup hazelnut nut milk (I used this brand)
1/2 cup mint tea, brewed and chilled
1 scoop Vital Proteins collagen peptides

Optional: 3-4 drops stevia**

Optional: 1 tsp Cinnamon Snickerdoodle Nut Butter

What You'll Need To Know

In a high-speed blender, add all ingredients and blend for 60-90 seconds or until smooth.

Pour and enjoy!
