In light of the fact that it is now spring, and gorgeous, and warm(er) outside, and I just got a Vitamix that I am so very excited about, I thought I would share with you a very most delicious smoothie that I am sure you will love just as much as I do.
This recipe is so simple, and is perfect in the morning to start your day with a belly full of hearty, fruity goodness. When choosing coconut milk for this recipe (or any time), make sure you always opt for the full-fat variety (not “light”). Not only because the fattier, the heartier, creamier, and tastier, but because fat is so, so good for us. It is what our cell membranes are made of, along with 60% of our brain. Fat is a wonderful thing, and certainly does not make us fat! And besides, low-fat means extra processed. Stick with what comes naturally, my friends.
