Healthy kale smoothie with banana and a hint of coconut. “This post is on behalf of EPICUREX. All opinions are my own. I wasn’t compensated for review but I received a product for free.”
It was my first time that I bought kale. I didn’t know how it tastes and what to expect. I heard many healthy facts about kale. So I just noticed kale at the other day in my healthy store and I’ve decided to buy it. Thinking what I’m going to do with it I came home. I wasn’t sure at first. However, after browsing Pinterest I realized that you can eat raw or cooked.
It got me thinking even more and after couple of minutes I knew what I’m going to do with it. Therefore new “kale” recipes will be coming to my blog soon.
First I I decided to make kale smoothie. I thought to keep it very simple with only 3 ingredients: kale, banana and Cocozia coconut water. Cocozia is the product that I recently tried and I really like. Coconut water Cocozia is mild and delicate in taste and sweeten perfectly. It is 100% organic and non GMO; that’s very important for me lately. It contains potassium, magnesium and other electrolytes. I love it chilled, so I keep my coconut water refrigerated.
Cocozia is perfect for this kale smoothie and as well as other smoothies. It adds a little sweetness. I can say that Cocozia coconut water is very delicious, refreshing and it comes in perfect packaging. The package of each individual box is nice and sleek. It’s light, not bulky and it’s easily to carry with yourself to the gym, work, school etc. There are two sizes of each individual box: 11.1 oz & 16.9 oz. Cocozia comes in two flavors: regular coconut water and chocolate coconut water. I’ll definitely would love to try chocolate version too.
The kale smoothie is sweetened naturally with banana and Cocozia coconut water. It doesn’t taste like veggie smoothie. It’s delicious and I will be making this smoothie often.
