Coconut_WaterAlexia’s Pre-Race Green Monster

This is my fabulous pre-half marathon Green Monster, or should I call it Green Goddess!!

I dunno how I came up with the concoction, but I just decided if this is gonna fuel me up for my big race, I better make it good! So I made sure it was a combination of some of my favorite ingredients:

2 large Kale leaves
1 handful of fresh cilantro – Love it!
1 T Chia seeds
1/2 cup Almond Breeze Vanilla Unsweetened
1/2 cup fresh coconut water (from a young water coconut) – Love it!
1/2 banana
1/2 juicy pear
5 ice cubes

Benefits of Coconut Water: The Perfect Sports Drink

-Filled with essential minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, and enzymes
-High in potassium
-Low in sodium
-Naturally hydrating
-Improves digestion
-Improves blood circulation
-Promotes smoother beautiful skin

list goes on…

This is by far the best GM I have ever made, perfect sweetness from the coconut water and the banana, and the cilantro gives it a nice refreshing finish!

Unfortunately I did not take a photo 🙁 But it was RADIANT green and put a smile on my face at 4:30 am!!

Try it out for a replenishing boost!

Completely blown away! For quite some time, the addition of kale in this smoothie has put me off, but today I really felt the need for an antioxidant rich concoction. I am so sad I’ve wasted all this time being afraid of the Green Monster!
Absolutely delicious and astoundingly refreshing.
This particular recipe is amazing…
