Vegan Orange Banana Smoothie

Posted by on Sunday, 13 May, 2012

This is the perfect pick me up with good fats, vitamins and minerals. Instead of putting yogurt or milk in, like I do with most of my smoothies, I only added water, but also Coconut Oil. I wanted a little something extra with good fats while adding a little sweetness.

2 Bananas
1 Orange
1 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup H2O
4 Ice cubes

Toss all this into your blender and in, oh, about 30 seconds you will have some heavenly bliss. Yummm.
