Chocolate Coconut Banana Smoothie

 
In the true spirit of my love & passion for chocolate, a new smoothie was born. I originally made this with just the greens, banana, berries, & cacao, but immediately knew what was missing. I have been completely obsessed with fresh coconut lately. Completely. I keep buying whole ones (or my mom surprises me with them!!), & I just cut out the flesh & eat it on its own. lovelovelove <3 My skin seems to glow the day after eating fresh coconut, & feels softer. Fresh coconut coupled with raw cacao in a smoothie is heavenly bliss. I can't tell you how much I love this smoothie: I have been WAAAY hooked on it lately! It gives me energy, lifts my mood, tastes like dessert, satiates me, & gives my body everything it needs. Do not pass up this recipe; it's a must-make ;)

From my kitchen, to yours:

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups water
1 scoop Vega
2 tbs cacao powder
2-4 cups greens (spinach, kale, your choice!)
1 banana
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup fresh coconut meat

Directions:
1) Blend it like it's breakfast. Enjoy it like dessert.
