|Banana Coconut Smoothie|
Pure heaven. This will give you the energy you need to start your day.
The secret ingredient here is coconut coffee creamer--just a drop adds great flavor. A real taste of the tropics!
Good pick-me-up or quicky breakfast. I used frozen mashed bananas, but fresh ones cut up can also be used, however, the partially frozen mashed produces a thick and foamy texture that is oh-so appetizing.
PS--lower-fat alternatives may be used with no sacrifice of flavor.
Banana Coconut Smoothie
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup half and half
- 2 tbs Carnation Coconut Creme coffee creamer
- 1 1/2 whole banana, sliced OR 1/2 cup partially-frozen mashed
- 1 tbs toasted coconut for topping.
Put all ingredients except the toasted coconut in an immersion (stick) blender bowl--the one that comes with it, or a deep narrow container.
Process with immersion blender on high for 1 minute. Pour into serving glass and top with toasted coconut.
