Breakfast Smoothie | Kin Community
– Hey, guys. I’m Sara Lynn, otherwise known as The Domestic Geek. Join me and my healthy food truck as we hunt down unhealthy meals in need of a Mobile Meal Makeover. I’m on the hunt for my first offender. Wish me luck. It’s time to find us an unsuspecting victim. I’m Sara Lynn. – Yes. – Really nice to meet you. I see that you’re in a hurry. What’s happening? What do you have here? – I’m going to my girlfriend’s place to bring her coffee right now. – That’s really sweet. That’s really sweet. Are you interested in breakfast? You can even bring it back to her. – That’s a deal. – Nice meeting you. – We’ll shake on it. Thank you. – [Sara Lynn] Pleasure. So, I’m thinking for Jason, one of my classic smoothies. Now, what I love about smoothies, obviously, they’re super simple to put together, but this one I’m thinking, features a ton of beautiful tropical fruit and some almonds for some healthy fats and a little hit of protein. So it’s great to keep you full ’til lunch. I am getting started with a blender. Now, I have a uber powerful blender happening in this food truck, but you can use any blender you want.
We’re gonna add some coconut water to our blender, and then to that, we are going to add some beautiful fruit. I have some diced pineapple, and then some beautiful diced mango. We’re also going to add some vanilla yogurt. Now, you could totally use plain yogurt if you want, and if you’re not into dairy, you can leave the yogurt out entirely. But I really like it. It adds a much needed protein and a little bit of sweetness, as well as the flavor with the vanilla.
And then, I’m adding half a banana. This is not a critical step. You could totally leave this out, but since it’s a tropical fruit smoothie, bananas fit right in. Then I’ve got just a couple more ingredients. I’ve got some beautiful slivered almonds. These are skinned already, so I’m just gonna add a couple good handfuls to this smoothie. And then, the secret ingredient to make this really tropical and delicious: Some shredded coconut. I’m using unsweetened shredded coconut. You can use whatever type that you like. You could even use fresh coconut if you wanted to.
Basically, what I’m creating is a breakfast piña colada. If you wanted to pour a splash of rum in here, go right ahead. No one’s gonna stop you. I won’t judge. Into the blender, this is going to go, and we’re gonna let it do all the work. (blending) It does take some time for the almonds to blend up, but trust me, it is worth the wait. You really don’t want the almond chunks in your smoothie. It’s smoothie beauty in here. All you need is a cup. Smells amazing. (tropical tune) Gorgeous tropical smoothie.

There you go, sir. – Mm. – Kind of a great way to get your day started, I think.
– Oh my gosh, I taste the banana and the nuts. That’s really wonderful. – I’m glad you like it. – I don’t make ’em this good. Not even close. – Kind of island-ish, isn’t it? – Has a little bit of mango in it, too. It’s very tropical. – Jason, enjoy your smoothie. – Yeah. – I hope it gives you all the fuel you’ll need for your day. Thank you so much for coming back to see me. – Thank you for inviting me. – Oh, my pleasure, my pleasure.
