A smoothie that tastes like an exotic beverage on a South Pacific beach? You got it. It’s time to have your morning smoothie take you to your favourite tropical paradise (without turning on the heater and fans, and unloading buckets of sand and umbrellas).

Purpose

The purpose of this unreal smoothie recipe is to combine the healing benefits of coconut (in all its forms) with the slightly sweet, yet tart, antioxidant rich raspberry. The end result? A veritable array of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that tastes like a tropical cocktail. Plenty of vitamin C, healthy fats, and antibacterial qualities as well. An excellent smoothie for candida sufferers and those with compromised brain function.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of raspberries
  • 1 cup of coconut milk
  • 1 cup of coconut water (from a young coconut)

  • Stevia or low glycemic sugar to taste

Directions
