Banana coconut smoothie recipe
Serves 2 to 3
2 whole bananas
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 cup whole seedless green grapes
1 cup Greek yogurt
4 cups ice cubes
2 tablespoons shredded coconut (for garnish)
1 thick slice banana per serving (for garnish)
2 tablespoons lime juice
In a blender, add the whole bananas, coconut milk, shredded coconut, grapes, yogurt and ice cubes.
Blend on the smoothie setting.
While the smoothie is blending, in a small bowl add the lime juice and the thick slices of banana. Coat the bananas on all sides with the lime juice to prevent them from turning brown.
Pour the smoothie into serving glasses and top with the remaining shredded coconut for garnish.
Put one slice of banana on the lip of each serving glass for garnish and serve immediately.
