Recipe by Pauline Hanuise
My parents just came back from Africa with heaps of fresh coconut flesh for me. As soon as I got back home with it, I couldn’t help but whip up an amazing superfood smoothie for the whole family.
Here’s what I came up with, and I promise you’ll love it!
5-Minute Cacao & Superfood Smoothie
- 1.5 cup coconut water
- 1/2 cup coconut flesh
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup of your favorite berries (here I’ve used frozen raspberries)
- 1 Tbsp. hemp powder
- 1 Tbsp. cacao powder
- 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
- 1 Tbsp. maca
- Hemp seeds
- Cacao nibs
Blend all ingredients into your high-speed blender until well combined and serve with your favorite toppings. Here I’ve used pistachios, hemp seeds and cacao nibs for toppings.
