Cacao Goji Hemp Smoothie
This is a good, basic superfood smoothie to get you going in the morning or pick you up in the afternoon!
.666 cup young coconut pulp
8 ounce coconut water , (or more, depending on thickness preference and thickness of coconut pulp)
1 ounce hemp seed (about 1/4 cup), unsoaked
½ ounce goji berries (about 2 1/2 T), unsoaked
1½ tablespoon cacao powder
¼ of a vanilla bean (or 1/2 t vanilla extract)
sprinkle Celtic Sea Salt
Open the young coconut and drain the water into a bowl. Scoop out the young coconut pulp. Add young coconut pulp and water to the blender, along with the other ingredients.
Start blending on low, and with the blender running, scrape down the mixture. Increase speed to high, blend until smooth, pour into a large glass, and enjoy!
See www.thenaughtyvegan.com for expert instructions on how to open a young coconut.
If you don’t have enough pulp, you can open up another young coconut, or you can use some dried shredded coconut, coconut flour or avocado to help thicken up the mixture. :)
