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.
- 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!!!
