This smoothie is so delicious, you must try!
I ‘d always wondered what a waste it was that we drink young coconuts out at cafes for its water but then dump the casing that I know has the amazing coconut meat still inside. So I did a bit of research and found out what people are doing with these young coconuts and why we should be doing the same!
One of my many investigations lead me to the page of “Chris Beat Cancer”. Chris Wark’s incredible journey back to health from stage 3 colon cancer is inspiring. He chose to not have chemo (incredibly brave move and not one he took lightly) and instead change the way he ate. At 26, he took on the fight of his life and fortunately for him, he won. One of the drinks he drank every day was a smoothie similar to this one. If you want to know more about him – click here. I love that it uses the whole coconut and it’s refreshing as well as being packed with nutrients, not to mention YUMMY!
1 whole young coconut – meat and water
1 cup mixed berries – I use fresh when possible.
1 frozen banana
