Blueberry Coconut Smoothie
Do you enjoy looking and feeling your best? Then this energy boosting, make-yourself-radiant Coconut-Blueberry Shake is right up your alley!
Plus it tastes amazing! (Think cross between malted milkshake & nut-brittle candy.)
I predict this exotic combination of flavors will fall into your weekly repertoire. It's a recipe I can whip up on the busiest of days knowing I'll love the taste and be doing something great for my body.
Wild blueberries pack a healthy punch of phytonutrients, antioxidants & anti-inflammatories, while coconut milk nourishes and moisturizes the hair and skin. Toasted pecans provide 19 vitamins and minerals, protein and... well, you get the idea! It's fabulous in every respect so you'll just have to try it:-)
Ingredients (Serves 2)
1 cup frozen wild blueberries
3/4 cup coconut milk (or equivalent fresh baby thai coconut coconut meat & coconut water)
2 tablespoons water
2 1/2 tablespoons pecans
1 1/2 tablespoons raw honey, coconut nectar, maple syrup or Stevia
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or powder
In a blender combine the blueberries, coconut milk, water, toasted nuts (or nut butter), honey and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth. Enjoy!
NOTE: If you don't have a heavy-duty blender like a Vitamix, use Almond Butter (or another nut butter- preferably raw) instead of the whole nuts to ensure a silky-smooth shake.
