Vegan Coconut-Lime Smoothie {Recipe}

Our new favorite drink will have you wishing it was summer forever.

It’s never too late to enjoy summer. Except when it’s fall, of course. So, for those looking to keep the good times and good vibes going all year, we’re presenting a coconut-lime smoothie created by Sepsenahki Aahkhu (aka, “Chef Ahki”). Smooth, cool, refreshing, and packed full of antioxidants and nutrients, this beverage is a great way to start your day … even after you’ve dusted off your favorite fall coat.

Editor's note: Chef Ahki will be at Vegetarian Vision at the Penn Plaza Pavilion in New York Saturday and Sunday showcasing this recipe (and more).
