Green Coconut Smoothie BowlGreen Coconut Bowl
Kale is high in vitamins K, A and C, iron, calcium and fibre. I made this recipe for some of my kids’ friends, and they loved it. Their moms couldn’t believe they were eating a green smoothie bowl with kale.

Tip:  Use leftover coconut milk in soup recipes, Thai recipes, hot chocolate and breakfast cereal. If you prefer, you can use store-bought granola to top your smoothie bowl.
