Coconut Water Smoothie

I’ve always heard wonderful things about coconut water, but I haven’t done much with it. I finally decided to buy a can at the grocery store this week. I did try it straight before putting it in the smoothie. It’s pretty good! I can definitely see myself drinking it.

I did decide to make a smoothie with it. The smoothie is delicious and very sweet. Sorry about the pic…I’d already had some, so the glass isn’t very clear anymore from where I poured the smoothie out.

Coconut Water Strawberry/Blackberry/Pineapple Smoothie

Coconut Water Strawberry/Blackberry/Pineapple Smoothie

1 can coconut water (I used a 17 oz-ish can)

1 small container of blackberries

1/2 a fresh pineapple

1- 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries

1 tablespoon chia seeds

You could easily make this without the chia seeds or with something else. It’s delicious, but I found it didn’t stick with me as well as some of the other smoothies I’ve made. If you can’t tell, I really like to make a big smoothie and then have it for a couple days. Yum!

I could see myself drinking this for dessert….

    • It didn’t take away my hunger for a super long time. I think it’s because it has so much sugar in it (from the fruit). It lasted in the fridge just fine, but I did have to stir it a bit before pouring because it separated a bit more than other smoothies I’ve made.
