the coconut raspberry smoothie

When I posted this on instagram there was a lot of haterade being thrown around because there was no recipe! Well guess what?

  • 1 C frozen raspberries
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 tbsp full-fat coconut milk
  • 1/4 C coconut milk water
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 C shredded coconut
  • 3/4 C nondairy milk
  • 1 pitted medjool date
  • 1 C ice cubes


  1. Open the can of coconut milk and scoop out 2 tbsp of the solid cream for the smoothie. Dig out the rest of the cream and save it for another use, and then use the sludgy liquid from the bottom in the smoothie too. It's approx. 1/4 C of liquid with some chunks of cream in it. Put this and all the remaining ingredients into a high-powered blender and combine until very smooth.
