Berry Smoothie

Summer is smoothie time!! Well, honestly I love smoothies all the time.. but they do seem more fitting on hot summer days. I have lately been making a delish berry smoothie. I enjoy them for breakfast the most. My kids enjoy them for lunch along with brown rice cakes spread with peanut butter.

Here is my recipe…

I start with 1/3 cup coconut milk. This is coconut milk from the can…

I open the can and use a fork to gently mix it all together as coconut milk separates. I add the 1/3 cup coconut to the blender…

And then add milk to make 1 cup..

Then I add 1 cup frozen berries. I am using frozen berries from Costco…

But any type will work (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries ). Add to blender…

Then add a big handful of spinach leaves, trust me you won’t taste them and neither will your children  but everyone will enjoy the nutritional benefits! ….

Finally add a little honey, (a tablespoon or so).. this is optional… (sorry for the blurry picture)

Blend until smooth….

Serve and enjoy!!


  1. YUM! I have been making kefir smoothies, but have not thought of adding the coconut milk. Extra goodness!

  2. Thanks for the recipe. We love smoothies here too. I had never thought of coconut milk. I will be giving these a try. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  3. Hey, Crystal! Speaking of Coconut Milk...I was wondering if you'd ever heard of anyone home canning home made coconut milk. I just saw your instructions for how you've canned your goats' milk in the past and wanted to get your opinion. Do you think the same protocol would work? And what kind of shelf life have you gotten from your canned milk. Sorry to be a little off topic...Just hoping for some input. Thanks! -Melissa

    1. Hi Melissa.. well, I've never done this so I have really no idea. I will say with the canned goats milk it had a taste like commercial canned milk.. not that great. Works fine for baking and such but I would not want to drink it. I wish I could give you more input on it! I think if it was me I might just freeze it instead.
