Recipe Notes

You don’t have to add 1/4 cup water in the green smoothie, I wanted my green smoothie thinner than the vanilla coconut layer, so I added water.

Top with mint leaves.

I make my own coconut milk, however, you can buy light tinned coconut milk.

I love fresh, local strawberries mainly for its characteristic aroma, bright red color, juicy texture, and sweetness. However, I used frozen strawberries and blueberries in this recipe as I like to eat my berries raw rather than blend them into a smoothies.

However, sometimes frozen berries tend not to be as sweet as fresh berries and your smoothie can become a bit tart, this is what happened to mine today. I resolved this by adding a banana👌🏽
