Full of coconut flavor, this smoothie is a must try for coconut lovers!


  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut + a little more for garnishing
  • 1 can full fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight)
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 2 tsp ground vanilla beans
  • 2 medjool dates


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Spread the shredded coconut on a lined baking sheet and place in the oven for 3-5 minutes. You just want to toast it a little to bring out the flavor more. Set aside.

  4. Also add the bananas, vanilla beans, dates and toasted coconut to the blender. (Save a little bit of the toasted coconut for garnish though.)
  5. Blend until smooth.
  6. For best results, serve immediately.
