Serves: 1 serving
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup coconut cream or ½ cup coconut milk
  • ⅔ cup water (or ½ cup water if using coconut milk)
  • 100g banana, frozen
  • 40g blueberries, frozen
  • 20g raspberries, frozen
  • 90g strawberries, frozen
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Equipment
  • A high speed blender like a Vitamix OR a decent food processor
Instructions
  1. Add your coconut cream (or milk) to your blender, add enough water to equal 1 cup of liquid. Add in the rest of your ingredients.
  2. Blend on medium speed using plunger if needed (or scrap the sides down if your blender doesn't use a plunger). If using a food processor, pulse several times, scraping down the sides as needed. Blend until creamy and smooth.
  3. Serve immediately or you can stick this in the freeze for 30 minutes to firm up more if desired.
Notes
I use Aroy-D brand coconut cream, if your brand is more solid, you might need to water it down more.

Don't want ice cream? That's okay, use fresh fruit or let the frozen fruit thaw and you'll have yourself an amazing tasting smoothie! Yummy!

Not sweet enough? Add a bit of stevia to sweeten it up.

Raw Chocolate Sauce

Everyone likes chocolate right? Well typically you wouldn’t associate chocolate with healthy food however, this raw food chocolate sauce is fantastic and healthy, especially when compared to the bottled chocolate sauce sold in grocery stores these days. If kept in a glass jar or air-tight container, it will keep very easily for 2 or more weeks in the fridge however, I’ve not had it last that long before (gets eaten too fast!). Use agave for vegan version or use maple syrup for vegan nonraw version!

Ingredients:

1 cup honey or agave
1 cup raw cocoa (cacao) powder
7  tablespoons coconut oil (warmed in a jar sitting in hot water)
1 pinch salt (optional)
1/4 cup water (use more if you don’t want it to turn solid)

 

Directions:

Put all your ingredients in a bowl and mix with hand mixer OR put into blender, and blend until smooth. This recipe is so simple, a child can do it. (see video for proof!)

That’s it! Super easy, store in tight fitting container or glass jar for 2 or more weeks, good luck having it last that long.
