Healthy Green Coconut Smoothie

Refreshing Beverage of the Week
Do you remember how smoothies started out really healthy before they were turned into junk food? The best way to do smoothies is at home in your blender and drink them right away — the nutrition starts to fade over time as they sit. Sometimes only a green beverage will do. It's like drinking a salad! No, not really, the banana blocks the flavor of the spinach. This is a great power breakfast.

2 bananas, frozen
2 HUGE handfuls spinach (you won’t even taste it)
1 cup milk (almond or soy or cow) or you can use half coconut milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey

Add all ingredients into a blender. Blend until mixed. Serve in tall glasses top with some toasted coconut flakes and enjoy.
