Coconut Water Smoothie

Updated: Nov 9, 2019

After a long festive season, it’s important to back into healthy eating with natural and healthy whole foods, like fruits, vegetables, yogurts etc.

Today I am sharing an Easy Coconut Water Breakfast smoothie to start your day.

It is also a perfect post workout drink that will re hydrate you. Coconut water is full of electrolytes that will help you to bounce back after you’ve exercised. Banana is a good source of potassium and vitamin C boost from the strawberries. 

It is a gluten-free, dairy-free antioxidant berry banana smoothie which is not too sweet and not too tart.
