Smoothie Sunday!

Today's smoothie is a recipe I came up with in honor of our favorite restaurant here in Atlanta. R. Thomas is a great catch-all restaurant depending on your needs...they have raw and vegan dishes, breakfast served all day, and if it's meat you want- they make sure to buy from local farms that treat their animals humanely (free-range and grass-fed).

David likes to call this smoothie Coconut Surprise, so that's what I'm calling it.

Coconut Surprise: makes 2 large servings


- 1 young coconut, water and pulp scooped out

- 1/3-1/2 pineapple, cubed

- 1 cup frozen strawberries

- ½ banana (I freeze my ripe ones to use in these smoothies, but not necessary)

- 1-2 dates (optional, we don’t usually put these in but it does make your smoothie sweeter if that’s what you are looking for ;)


- Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor, and enjoy! You can even put some back into the coconut for a fancy treat.


- Make sure to use frozen strawberries

- Use a spoon to scoop out the coconut flesh

- For videos on how to open a coconut, go to, there are many different ways

Happy Smoothie Sunday,
