Can you use coconut or almond milk rather than coconut water?

Great smoothie!!! I mixed it spinach , kale, carrot and apple juice that I made from my juicer.

If you want to make this a slightly more frozen type of drink, I froze some coconut water in cubed and dropped them in at the end. Great smoothie overall though.

Just whipped up a batch of this for breakfast. It's an absolutely fantastic recipe. This is something even kids would really like. Thanks.

Used to make pure avocado smoothies, but this is so much better. Except I never tried it with coconut water because I can't stand bottled coconut water. Instead I used water, added a handful of coconut and I make it all the time now!!!
