Green juices are not going anywhere, so we decided to try a new recipe using our favorite coconut water Cocolibre. It's the first and only organic coconut water so of course we had to find a few different ways to use it in our daily routine. Packed with more magnesium than a banana, coconut water is the perfect after workout hydrator to restore electrolytes, after you've been in the sun or just to enjoy with a few berries or watermelon tossed in to enjoy throughout the day. We enjoy this green juice recipe after a workout or as a part of our breakfast. Don't be afraid to try your own version with other berries or fruit you may enjoy.
1. Coconut Water
I've always wanted to be able to enjoy coconut water but after trying some of the more natural brands, hadn't found one that I enjoyed the flavor until I discovered Cocolibre.
It's not only organic but has such an amazing taste, I'm so happy to be able to share it with you guys!
It's a must try you can find in your natural section of your grocery store or any Whole Foods.
2. Gather Your Ingredients
We used only organic ingredients for this juice and in most of our foods. Find them at Whole Foods or your local farmers market.
- 1 cup spinach
- 1/4 avocado
- 1/4 apple
- 1/4 pear
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/4 cup blackberries
- 1/2 cup coconut water
- 1 banana
3. Add your Ingredients to the Blender
Add in all your fruit, spinach, chia seeds and honey.
Add a dash of cinnamon or ginger for extra metabolic boosters. See our post on these here.
4. Add in Coconut Water
Once all your ingredients are in the blender, add in your coconut water and then turn your blender on a high setting to break down the apple, pear and seeds in your berries for a smoother taste.
5. Blend all Your Ingredients
Be sure to blend all the ingredients together until the juice turns completely green.
Adjust any of the portions to suit your taste.
If you've blended it and its taken on the color of your berries you may need to blend further or add in a handful spinach.
6. Pour & Serve
Makes 2 cups or 1 large size tumbler.
Pour your green juice into your favorite tumbler or portable mug top with a few berries or granola and enjoy!
