Confession: the recipe says smoothie but it’s really more like a milkshake, because you can’t drink this pink wonder without feeling like you’re drinking dessert.
The good news is that this smoothie is way more nutritious than a milkshake. So you can treat yourself and nourish yourself deeply at the same time—just the kind of mad self-love we are all about here. Try it for breakfast, as a midafternoon snack, or a satisfying dessert after a spring supper.
Pink Wonder Smoothie
Yield 2 servings
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- 1 frozen banana
- ¼ ripe avocado
- 4 dates (pitted)
- 3 cups coconut water
- 1 T. maca powder
- ½ tsp. vanilla
- pinch of salt
Blend all of the ingredients until the strawberries and dates are completely incorporated. Makes two generous servings.
If you have popsicle molds, this smoothie freezes perfectly for a cold, creamy treat.
Blueberries also work well in this recipe, as do raspberries and blackberries—if you don't mind the seeds.
