This smoothie is inspired by the Extra Mile Smoothie at Kure in Portland, OR. It is my favorite in town and I had to learn to make it myself, adapting it for the Healthy Balance smoothie formula. It's loaded with healthy fats, fiber and creamy goodness. If you like coconut, you will be a fan of this one....
- 8 ounces coconut water
- 1 tbsp coconut manna (coconut butter) or coconut meat
- 1 tbsp plain coconut yogurt (I love the Coyo brand)
- 1 serving protein powder (I prefer collagen peptides)
- 1 tbsp almond butter
- 1 tbsp hemp seeds
- 1 cup of kale, baby kale or baby spinach
Blend all ingredients with one cup of ice. Garnish with coconut flakes, cinnamon or cacao nibs if you are feeling fancy!
