Coconut Chia Smoothie
"Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow"
And let's hope this is the last snow of this winter!! Looking at the forecast ahead and now I'm already saying goodbye the snow with this Coconut Chia smoothie.
1 fresh young coconut, meat and juice
2 frozen bananas (room temperature OVERRRIPE bananas are fine too)
Chia Pudding (see note)
1 tbsp maca powder (optional)
1-2 tbsp coconut oil (optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender, except chia pudding, until smooth. Then add chia pudding and blend at slow speed for 5 second.
Note: for chia pudding: mix 2 tbsp of chia seeds with 3/4 c of water or nut milk and let soak over night or at least 20 mins. If you don't want to soak chia seeds at all, you can blend the seeds with other ingredients all at once in the blender. But I LOVE having some texture in my smoothie so adding the pudding at the very end and blend it at a low speed does a perfect job.
Do you know coconut oil helps you lose weight burn fat and boost your energy??
