An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RECIPE: COCONUT SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE

This smoothie is your new best friend. Its superfood contents jam in the vitamins and nutrients your body craves.

It blasts sugar cravings and will jostle your body back to health. Its power-packed protein will ramp up your metabolism and keep you satisfied!

Sure, it has more ingredients than I like to deal with, especially in the morning, but it’s easier than making eggs and it keeps me full longer!

Recipe makes 2 full servings, so I make one each morning then I’ll pour half in a jar and save it the fridge for later. Sometimes I’ll share 1/2 with my husband and/or 9 month old.  This is definitely our family’s new, “go to” breakfast smoothie!

Enjoy!

COCONUT Superfood Smoothie

In a Blender Combine:
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2-1 cup filtered water (more if you want to pour it, less if your going for Ice Creamy)
1 banana, peeled
3-4 cubes ice
2 Tbsp:
Coconut (unsweetened)
Pumpkin seeds
Chia seeds
Hemp hearts (optional)
Pecans
1 Tbsp:
Coconut oil
1 tsp:
Cinnamon
Maca Powder (optional)
 Oh and by the way, if you have a serious ice cream obsession, this beast will blast those sweet, cold, creamy cravings for sure!

And If you’re one of those weirdos who don’t like coconut… just go. We don’t want you here.

    Was reading this in the kitchen studying for recert boards while baby ate. Whipped it up. Very fluffy and creamy and “whipped-like.” I did add a bit of maple syrup because I only had half a banana. It is very good!
