Vegan Smoothie: Banana, coconut, cacao nibs


Beauty lies in simplicity.

  • 5 bananas (around 600 grams)
  • 1/2 oz cacao nibs for crunchiness
  • 2 cups of coconut/almond milk or plain water

Blend the bananas and coconut/almond milk in the Vitamix. At the end, add cacao nibs and pulse a couple of times, so you still have pieces of the nibs left. They are deliciously crunchy in this smooth vegan smoothie.

  • Approximately 700 calories with the milk, 600 calories with plain water.


This vegan smoothie is a great pre-workout meal to fuel your tennis fitness training, or post-workout for recovery. 

If you drink it after your tennis practice or strength training session, you can add 15-30 grams of pumpkin seed or rice protein (adds extra 50-110 calories).
