Preparation

  1. Blend in a high speed blender until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour into a large bowl and top with granola, bee pollen, dried superfruit. I believe one of the KEYS to the lasting duration of this smoothie is the granola combined with the thick, density of the smoothie (nutrition and ingredients).
  3. If you need more sweetness, add a few dates or a few drops of stevia.

Notes

NOW, if you don’t have access to: coconuts - just use an avocado for the thick, creamy consistency or use some full-fat organic coconut milk in place of the water/ coconut meat. Dried figs – substitute what you like: dried plums, dried apricots, dried prunes, Thompson raisins, dates (pitted), etc. – Make sure dried fruit is UNSULPHERED and ORGANIC. Kale – use collards, spinach (use LOTS being that it is a thinner green), swiss chard chia seeds – use flax seeds (they might “nutty” up the flavor so use less) to taste Toppings: use fresh banana slices, fresh fruit, or frozen fruit, cacao nibs, whatever you like. Some days, I will add spirulina, Ormus Greens or the like for extra OOMMPH! to it.
