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. 🙂

I Loved Having This Coconut Strawberry Banana Smoothie In The Morning

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 5 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!

Why Is Agave Nectar Used In This Smoothie Recipe?

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.  What I love about the agave nectar as compared to sugar or even honey is it does not require a lot 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! 🙂

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.. 🙂

    Thank you for this!! I’ve been put on a very strict diet for health reasons and it’s been a major struggle to completely change my eating habits. I was having a sweet craving and took to the internet before I got myself off track and came across this page. This is easily within my diet and hits that sweet craving perfectly:)

    I may or may not have had one of these almost every day since I’ve seen this post. My husband and four year old daughter both love it too. Thanks so much for helping us try out coconut milk. It is amazing!

    1. Krista

      haha… awesome megan! I haven’t had one in a while. I’m actually going to make one tomorrow and add some kale to it. I’ll let you know how it goes. 🙂

      Coconut milk is seriously amazing, right!?

    Hi Krista!! My son would totally love this smoothie!! Now that we’re in the dead of winter, I’ve totally been craving fresh fruit, and smoothies have really been hitting the spot. (I had one last night for dinner.) We will definitely be trying this soon! Have pinned! Have a great week, Krista! ~Erin

    1. Krista

      Oh your son will definitely love it. Every time my son sees me bring out the blender he thinks he’s getting a smoothie and pushes his little stool over to help. So cute. 🙂 Hope you like it Erin, i’ll have to head over to your site and see some of the smoothies you’ve posted lately. I’m sure they’re awesome!

    I bet this smoothie is delicious. I love that you used coconut milk and banana. So rich and creamy I’m sure 🙂

  7. Louisa [Living Lou]

    Can you believe that I’ve never made a smoothie using coconut milk before? What a great idea – I bet it adds a nice sweetness!

  8. Joanne/WineLady Cooks

    This sounds perfect. I’m a huge coconut fan and will definitely make this. I make a ‘green’ drink everyday, I’ll make this for my ‘dessert’. Pinned.

    1. Krista

      Oh… spinach in this would be perfect and make it green. I’ll need to try it that way, let me know how your “dessert” tastes.. hehe. 🙂 Thanks for the pin girl!

    1. Krista

      I just started using it since I’ve been on the paleo diet and totally love it! 🙂 Little dude is a big fan of this one, even climbed up on the chair to get some action while I was shooting. 🙂

      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

      Hope that helps Frances! Thanks so much for your readership!

    1. Krista

      It was a blast Kelly, can’t wait for another one. Definitely missed my little man though.

      This smoothie is a definite winner, and love that it is dairy and sugar free. It feels so light on the tummy and packs some awesome flavor!

    1. Krista

      Yup, thats the love of my life.. or at least one of them. 🙂

      This smoothie is totally awesome, first time trying it with coconut milk and definitely doing it that way from now on! Thanks for the pin girl!
