Hi there, this is a new recipe that I have developed. This way you can add some veggies to your morning drink. Also if you don't live here in lovely California where we can buy whole coconuts this recipe allows one to enjoy the benefits of coconut without having to open one with a machete every day!! (my husband is pleased about this, after many months of chopping them open every morning). This is similar in nutritonal value and will keep you full for at least 2 hours and maybe more.
Chef Shobhan's latest morning wake-up shake
1 cup spinach
2 tablespoons (US tablespoons) spirulina or chlorella
1 tablespoon raw cacao nibs or whole beans
1 tablespoon unrefined coconut oil
1 tablespoon grated coconut
1 pinch cayenne (optional)
1 pint coconut water
Place everything in the blender and blend until smooth. You can easily double this. This recipe is for one person.
Coconut is anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and it's an anti-oxidant. Not to mention coconut has lauric acid which is only found in mothers milk or coconut! It also contains caprylic acid and capric acid.
