A creamy and vitamin packed Coconut Strawberry Banana Smoothie made with coconut milk!

Happy Monday morning ya’ll! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mike and I did, we actually had a Mommy Daddy getaway weekend which was a blast! We went to a fancy dinner the first night, an awesome Discipleship class on Saturday morning where I really felt God speak, saw Jack Ryan the new Tom Clancy movie {totally recommend}, and ended Saturday night with Tapas and goal setting for 2014!

But alas, back to life, back to reality as it is now Monday. πŸ™‚

I usually start the day with a cup of coffee. I am so not a morning person and NEED the caffeine to wake me up in the morning. Ok, maybe not need, but want the caffeine in the morning.

Well, I have a new drink to wake you up in the morning and it literally takes 1 minute to make! No joke

Instead of that morning coffee or latte, how about starting with a Coconut Strawberry Banana Smoothie? The best part about this smoothie is no dairy and no sugar!

Even, without the dairy this smoothie is still creamy from the coconut milk and banana. Plus it is packed with potassium, Vitamin C, protein, fiber, and antioxidants.

Recently I have been using Agave Nectar instead of sugar and this smoothie is no exception. Β What I love about the agave nectar as compared to sugar or even honey is it does not require alot to sweeten something up. Agave Nectar has a moderate glycemic level and whats better is it is natural. The source of the “sweet” from Agave Nectar comes from fructose, which is the natural sweetness that comes from fruits and vegetables. Even better! πŸ™‚

Without the dairy, sugar, or caffeine. This Coconut Strawberry Banana Smoothie is sure to give you that rush to wake you up in the morning. Or, if your like me, a sweet treat to drink while watching the Bachelor at night! Hehe.. πŸ™‚

To get started, add 1 whole banana, 3 frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup of crushed ice, and 1/2 cup of coconut milk to blender.

    1. Hey Frances, thank you so much for following me. I have actually looked into doing that, unfortunately there is no quick way to get those facts and because I do this blog during my sons naptime it is one area I have had to just surrender. However, if you would like to get the counts this website is a great tool. http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator
