New Green Breakfast Smoothie Recipe

Good morning Chicago! Today I made a delicious breakfast smoothie. It was called a green smoothie but mine came out more purple from the blueberries. Here are the ingredients:

1/2 Avocado (good source of fat and nature's butter)
1 C. Coconut water (from a young fresh Thai coconut is preferable but if that is not possible then regular coconut water will do or even 1/2 coconut milk and 1/2 water)
1/2 Cucumber (peeled if not organic to reduce the amt. of pesticides you ingest)
1 Banana
1-2 handfuls of Kale
Blueberries (1-2 handfuls)

Blend and enjoy. If it needs more liquid then add more coconut water and if you like yours sweeter then add Agave, Stevia, Honey....whatever you prefer. I enjoyed mine without any additional sweetener. The banana and blueberries provided enough sweetness for me.
