rainbow coconut smoothie bowls


  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup frozen (or fresh!) coconut meat (I find frozen at whole foods)
  • 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1 teaspoon honey

for the rainbow fruit: (it’s totally up to you!)

  • red: strawberries, raspberries, pluots
  • orange: peaches, mango
  • yellow: banana, pineapple
  • green: kiwi, fresh mint
  • blue: blueberries
  • indigo: dark plums
  • violet: blackberries, black raspberries
  • shredded coconut for topping


To make the coconut milk ice cubes, fill an ice cube mold with coconut milk! Freeze overnight. Slice and prep your fruit before you make the smoothie.

Blend together the coconut milk, bananas, coconut milk ice cubes, coconut meat, hemp seeds, shredded coconut and honey. You want it to be thick so it can be scooped into a bowl, much like an acai bowl or banana “ice cream.” This works best with a high powered blender.

Once the smoothie is in the bowl, layer on your fruit in the rainbow pattern. Cover with shredded coconut. Serve immediately!
