Chocolate, Banana & Coconut Smoothie

I seem to be on a Chocolate theme this month, so I’ve added in with my smoothie too!!

Maybe it’s because for the first time I have not been baking up all the treats I usually do!!  I was in the big city the other day and not only did I find young coconuts but a big sale on them as well,  so todays smoothie does have coconut meat in it, which is very good for us, but you don’t have to use it if it’s not available to you.

For todays Giveaway, in the comment section, leave what your favorite smoothie is.  Comments will be taken upuntil Wednesday 10 pm.  This Giveaway is Meta Greens, when you just can’t get the raw in, this is the next best thing.

Chocolate, Banana & Coconut Smoothie

2 Bananas

2 handfuls Spinach

Flesh of young coconut (optional – if you don’t have or want to use Coconut just add more

almond milk)

Almond Milk

1 – 2 Tbsps Raw Cacao Nibs or Powder

Blend up until smooth, makes 2 servings so share with a friend and enjoy!!

Extras

I sometimes add in other things to get more from my smoothies or hide things from my kids (heehee) so that we all get more nutrition, here are a few ideas

Maca

Spirulina

Meta Greens

Aloe

or anything else you feel  or like to add in as blending it in a smoothie makes it easier to digest and gest in our system faster!

Super Smoothie

Ok, I finally got hit with the flu bug that has been going around our house for the last 10 days……ugh!!!

Someone usually says to me ‘Oh but I thought you ate so healthy?’………there is always room for improvement, I’m not perfect.

As I was reading Louise L Hay’s book this morning ‘You Can Heal Your Life’, under Influenza, I finally saw it…… influence.

What has been having obviously negative influence in my life??  Response to lots of negativity and fear.  Hmmmm, got me thinking, yup going through some  stuff right now…..how interesting, obviously I need to deal with it better!!!

Anyways, when my body isn’t feeling so good, I am a firm believer in listening to it and giving it foods, teas, juices etc to help it heal faster, and very little food.

This morning I had the pleasure of having a young coconut.  When I get into Vancouver and Commercial Dr. I bring back a few as I can’t get any here and they are so good for you.

I’ve added some photos of a young coconut as it’s not the one’s you usually see.  It is also easy to take the top off, if I can do it, so can you!!
