In the summer, my favorite breakfast is an iced cold, fresh smoothie. In the past three days I have been enjoying a new recipe called Covona smoothie. Covona is the combination of coconut, avocado, and banana. How clever? Here are the ingredients if you are interested.
1 cup of milk (I use two percent)
1 cup of coconut-flavored yogurt (I use Liberté’s whole milk yogurt with Philippine coconut)
1 whole ripe avocado
6 strips of coconut (I use Trader Joe’s coconut strips lightly sweetened)
2 table spoons of chia seeds
2 table spoons of honey
10 cubes of ice
It is perfect for two servings. For a more tropical flavor, replace avocado with a ripe mango and two slices of pineapples.
