Tropical Smoothie December 7, 2010

Maybe this smoothie is a little out of place mid-winter?  But maybe it’ll perk you up when a lot of snow is falling on the ground.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 2 cups coconut water
  • 1 cup pineapple slices
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 tsp goji berry powder
  • 1 tsp camu camu powder

Throw the ingredients in a blender and enjoy!

All these ingredients can be found at Wegmans.  If you’re not near a Wegmans then Whole Foods.  When I was going through a phase where I ate mostly raw food I neglected frozen fruit.  But now I find that it is really convenient.  You avoid possibility of mold and bacteria as well as cut down on waste.  In the summer it is a lot easier to enjoy fresh fruit, but in the winter months I’m sticking to frozen fruit.

The goji berry powder is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals.  It has 18 amino acids, loaded with vitamin A.  The camu camu provides a substantial amount of vitamin C, which is great for fighting winter colds.  Drink up!!!
