Strawberry coconut smoothie.

Sorry for the radio silence around here, friends—I am still sick with an obnoxious cold that just won't seem to go away, and yesterday I decided to start popping cold meds to try to alleviate my symptoms. I think they're helping, and I'm hoping to feel better by the weekend, but man, this week has been a doozy.

So in the spirit of health, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite smoothie recipes. I've been really into making smoothies/shakes in the morning lately, and this one always hits the spot—plus it's dairy-free, with only a couple of ingredients. Happy blending!

Strawberry Coconut Smoothie

1 cup organic frozen strawberries
1 banana, sliced
2 Tbsp. organic coconut milk (let's be real: I use the full-fat version and often I use 2.5 tablespoons, but you could totally use light coconut milk, too)
1 tsp lemon juice, or to taste
1/4 cup water

Blend strawberries, banana, coconut milk, lemon juice and water until smooth. Drink immediately. Enjoy.

  1. This is basically EXACTLY what I've been blending to soothe my throat each morning. I can't believe you're still sick, too! I'm going on my 4th day home from work. Just, straight up broken at this point...but what can ya do? I can't make myself feel bad for something I have no control over...

    Love the recipe and sending you feel better vibes.

    1. Ugh, I'm so sorry you're still sick! I just have a stupid, never-ending cold--have been able to get to work, at least (though I did leave early yesterday and today I had a coughing fit that probably scared my intern). I finally caved and started taking Advil Cold & Sinus last night and it's helping...I'm SO sorry you are feeling so gross, though; I hope it's over and done with soon! Summer colds/sinus infections are the worst.

      Glad you are enjoying this smoothie, too--sending you good, healthy, strawberry-coconut-smoothie-filled juju. xx
