Healthy and Paleo Apple Banana Smoothie

22 Jul

As I said in my last post… smoothies are perfect for the summer as a breakfast or snack! But those store bought ones… are questionable when it comes to nutrition value. So here’s a real easy, healthy, paleo and vegan smoothie to try out because it is also delicious!!

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 cup of Coconut Milk
  • Ice (optional)

Instructions

1. Remove the skin of the apple (I used a peeler).

2. Slice off the apple flesh from the core, and chop it in to pieces. If you’re not going to use it right now, be sure to soak it in some salty water to keep it from browning.

    Amazing! I used one large ripe banana, one apple, half a tin of coconut milk, 3 ice cubes (pinch of nutmeg). Coconut milk was too thick and ice cubes helped to water it down. A favourite with everyone in my family, esp my 4 year old son! yum..

      Super glad you liked it! Never thought about adding nutmeg. I’ll probably have to try that some time!

        I also just started adding some strawberries to the mix, as well as half a cup of spinach, too, and it’s awesome!

          Is there a replacement for the coconut milk I have allergic reaction to coconut ?

            Hey Shari! I would try Almond milk. It’ll be a different flavor, but it should do fine :)
