Apple and coconut don’t seem to be two flavors that will go together successfully but this healthy fruit smoothie recipe proves that they do. This mix works great as an afternoon snack or even as a breakfast meal.

Its also easy to make this healthy fruit smoothie treat even healthier just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.

  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1 banana, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger root
  • 1 tbsp. Chia seed
  • Ice to taste

Everything into the smoothie blender except for the ice. Blend on high, adding ice until you reach your preferred consistency.
