Chia Seed Smoothie

I just realized how hard it is to come up with names for posts or recipes for that matter. How would you name this smoothie?

It consists of:

1 Banana

1 Mango

2 Tbsp Frozen Bluberries

Handful of Spinach

2 Tsp of Chia Seeds

2 Tsp of Coconut Oil

1 1/2 C Almond Milk

Blend all ingredients in blender. Enjoy!

This is not a super sweet smoothie and make sure that the mango is ripe in order for it to have some sweetness. This smoothie is Sashenka approved. He is not a big fan of most of my smoothies. But he did enjoy the subtle flavors of the blended ingredients.

Coconut Mango Smoothie

20120917-183555.jpg

No dairy but creamy and sweet!

1 young coconut
1.5 mangos
1 frozen banana

Crack open a hole on top of the young coconut and pour out the water. Then split the coconut in half. Sashenka used a small ax for this task but you can also use a butcher knife. Be careful not to spill the coconut water inside while you are at it. Combine the coconut water, half of the coconut flesh, mangos, and frozen banana in a blender and blend.
Made two drinks for Sashenka and I, but this could be for one super large drink.
