Day 1 - May 2013 GSC

If you are a fan of that yummy coconut flavour, then this Green Smoothie is one worth trying!

Chickweed Party GS
Yield: 1 quart

2 cups Young Thai coconut water
Meat from 1 Young Thai coconut
1 handful Chickweed
1 handful mixed greens
1 mango, peeled and seeded
1 banana, peeled
Handful fresh strawberries
  • Add all ingredients to a blender and blend together until smooth
  • Use that coconut meat! With a heavy spoon, remove the white meat from the inside of the coconut and either use it right away, or store in a bag in the freezer for future use.
  • The fat from coconut is considered saturated, but it is actually called Lauric Acid, a type of fat which is easily absorbed by the human body and used instantly as energy.


For those times when you just want to enjoy a drink that is thick and creamy, adding an avocado will do the trick!
Blue Avocado GS
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 banana, peeled
1 large peach, peeled and seeded
2 cups water
1 avocado, peeled and seeded
  • Substitute frozen peaches when fresh peaches are not in season
  • Blend fruit and water together first
  • Add avocado to blender and blend all together
  • Add more water as needed for desired consistency 
  • Avocados contain oleic acid which lowers cholesterol, potassium to regulate blood pressure, and folate for heart health.
  • Avocados also help absorption of carotenoids from vegetables, and contain vitamins, minerals, and heart-healthy monounsaturated fat.
