Blueberry Coconut Smoothie



                    I'm a smoothie junkie. It's a great healthy way to start your day and -
           incorporate your fruits and veggies. I feel energized when I have a smoothie and
           they are so easy to make at home. I'm a coconut kinda gal and coconut milk has
           gone in all my smoothies for over a year. It's such a treat. This is a great combo.

                                                            Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

                                                       1 container fresh blueberries ( 8 oz )
                                                                        1 banana
                                                              1 cup of coconut milk
                                                                 1 teaspoon honey
                                                                     1 cup of ice
                                                        shredded coconut - for garnish

           1) In a blender - place ice, banana, milk, honey, and blueberries. Mix until blended.
