Free Healthy Recipe - Coconut, Avocado & Banana Smoothie

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low GI, Wheat Free

Smoothies are a nutritious and quick meal. This one is packed full of good fats from the avocado and coconut as well as lots of fibre. I add some of the coconut flesh into the smoothie and use the rest to make coconut rice. What I like most about this smoothie is that it is based on raw, nutrient rich whole foods.
