One can get pretty spoiled living in the happiest, healthiest town in America. Combine world-class skiing, climbing, mountain biking out your back door with a super high concentration of Olympic and tri-athletes, no wonder I don't get any funny looks at the grocery store when asked to be pointed towards the dulse. Health and nutrition are, needless to say, paramount in Boulder. Which is why I had such an easy time ripping off this recipe from my local grocery store's seemingly requisite fresh juice bar.
It is one my absolute favorite lunches...especially when I have a 10lb brined pork butt slow roasting in the over for dinner (more on that later this week) Kids LOVE it because it tastes like a milkshake. It's a great way to be a sneaky mom and get some spinach in them. Or you, for that matter.
the green coconut
1 apple peeled and roughly cut
1 banana, sliced
10 oz frozen coconut milk, slightly defrosted OR use a brand like SO Delicious Coconut Milk and a frozen banana instead
1/2 c frozen chopped or baby spinach
2 t honey
Agave syrup works really well if you don't want to use honey. Alfalfa's has been cutting the coconut milk lately with a choice of almond or hemp which are equally delicious.
