When I was in Whistler hanging out with Olympian Kelsey Serwa, we got to make some of the Zico Coconut Water smoothie recipes and I’m completely addicted to one in particular — the Mint Lime Detox smoothie. It’s as refreshing and vibrant as it sounds and I’ve been having it a few times a week. Here’s the recipe (it makes 2 cups):
- 1/2 cup Zico Original Coconut Water
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 1/2 bananas
- 1 orange, peeled
- 1/2 lime, peeled
- 3 mint sprigs, just the leaves
- 1/2 cup kale or spinach (optional)
Looking for a pre-workout smoothie? Morning Blast features Greek yogurt, bananas, almond butter and has a latte-flavour kick. You can find that Morning Blast smoothie recipe over on AmongMen.

Two weeks ago, I got travel to Whistler to ski with Zico Coconut Water-sponsored athlete Kelsey Serwa — you know, the Olympian who won silver in Sochi for ski cross. NBD.
First, she did one of the ski cross courses and explained the sport to us (I took a video of her demo — you can watch it on my Instagram). Then we did a quickie ski lesson that she tagged along for. Then I got to sit down with her and chat about her training and what it was like to stand on the podium in Sochi.
And while you may never compete in the Olympics, you can definitely learn from how she approaches her training and apply it to your routine. Visit AmongMen to read about 8 Ways to Train Like an Olympian.
