This is one of our favorite go-to smoothies. It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals. Substituting coconut water for regular water gives this — and you — a huge electrolyte blast. Great for beating that afternoon slump or replenishing after a workout!

Active time: 5 minutes

Total time: 5 minutes

2 cups coconut water

1/2 cup spinach

½ cup kale

2 frozen bananas, chopped into 1-inch pieces

2 Medjool dates, pitted

1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled

1 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoons flax seeds

2 teaspoons chia seeds

2 teaspoons hemp seeds

  1. In a heavy-duty blender, combine coconut water, spinach, kale, banana chunks, dates, ginger, cinnamon, flax, chia and hemp. Blend on high speed for about 1 minute or until smooth and creamy.

Makes 2 servings

Note: Chopping up ripe bananas and freezing them is the best way to achieve a delicious rich and creamy smoothie. (That’s our secret at Lettuce Love Café!)
