Yes, this is higher in fat than most of my smoothies. But all the fat comes from the coconut, which in my book, makes it healthy. I love coconut fats!

However, if the fat content is really a concern for you, simply change the coconut milk to any other type of milk for a yummy banana smoothie with a hint of coconut. Delish either way!

It’s refreshing, filling, and full of good-for-you nutrients. You can’t go wrong!

  1. How do you cook Quinoa? I don’t even know what it is… I assume it’s a grain?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Annie – It’s really easy. Quicker than cooking rice. I recommend rinsing it with warm water, then following the package directions. I believe it’s technically a seed, but it’s treated as a grain. It has a unique and understated flavor. I think you’ll enjoy it. We sure do!

  2. WOW!!! This smoothie is delicious – Thank you so much for the recipe. I added Protein Powder because it was post-workout dinner. Keep these coming Tiffany. Thanks again!!

    Ya, spinach is great in smoothies. I have never once gotten a spinach flavor. It’s a great way to get those extra nutrients!

  4. Nathalie Bossé says:

    I loved this smoothie. It’s delicious and you can’t even taste the spinach!

      Awesome! That’s why I love adding spinach so much. All those nutrients without changing the flavor!

  5. Just curious if you used the canned light coconut milk or the coconut milk in the carton, similar to almond milk.

    Thanks so much, I look forward to trying this and your other recipes!

      Jodi – The stuff in the refrigerator is not clean. They add sugar and other ingredients. You want the canned stuff, but even then, read the ingredient list. It should be only two to three ingredients tops.

      1. Great, thank you so much!

          Jodi – My pleasure! 🙂
