Banana and Coconut Smoothie


Hello Smoothie Lovers,

I hope you're all well.

It's been a busy couple of days for me but I'm back with a new smoothie recipe for you.

On my way home from the office today I walked pass the mini fruit stall today  and I saw coconuts and thought oh wow I haven't had one of these in ages. As usual I bought two for £1.. bargain eh?

Whilst breaking the coconut I remembered why I hadn't bothered buying a coconut all this while. Breaking a coconut can be such a tedious task Grrrr!! and not to talk of taking out the white meat out of the shell. The white meat is  known as the "Endosperm" ....what a peculiar name for the internal part of a coconut ha ha !!
