Coconut Water and Avocado Smoothie

Young green coconuts contain more electrolytes than your average sports drink. Coconut water contains the same amount of electrolytes as human blood, and it is a natural source of calcium, potassium and magnesium. In addition, minerals are plentiful in coconut water which regulate PH levels, raise energy, and increase metabolism.

Ingredients

2 1/4
cups coconut water, chilled
2
ripe avocados, pitted, peeled and cut into pieces
3
tablespoons agave nectar
2
teaspoons fresh lime juice
Fill 14-cube ice-cube tray with 2 cups of the cold coconut water. Freeze until solid.
  • 2In blender, place avocado, coconut water ice cubes, remaining 1/4 cup cold coconut water, agave nectar and lime juice. Cover; blend with on-and-off pulses until creamy and smooth.
  • 3Pour into drinking glasses. Serve immediately.
