Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

If you're engaged with the food community on instagram, you've probably seen an uprise of cauliflower smoothies and posts on how to make your smoothies as low sugar as possible. I am all for people eating the things that they want and love, but I realized that I actually don't love putting cauliflower in my smoothies as much as I love putting banana in my smoothies. So, while I try to be mindful of my sugar intake, I also know that I want to eat things I actually love and that bananas have plenty of good stuff in them and this is all to say that it's so important to figure out what actually works and feels/tastes good for YOUR body and not just jump on a health trend (*raises hand*) because someone you admire is doing it. I love sneaking greens into smoothies when I can, but this smoothie is purely fruit because that's what I was in the mood for and that is O.K.!

BLUEBERRY COCONUT SMOOTHIE

  • 1 cup milk of choice (I used cashew milk) 
  • 1 handful frozen blueberries
  • a few chunks of frozen coconut (TJ's sells this in bags already chunked!)
  • protein powder of choice (I use Further Food collagen peptides - you can get some with my discount cookbookish10 or just use whatever works/tastes good for you)
  • 1 tsp Bulletproof Brain Octane (basically very concentrated coconut oil - not necessary but I love this stuff)
  • topped with Pearl Butter (more coconut!) and freeze dried raspberries
