Blueberry Coconut Smoothie REBLOG @StyleNectar

Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

Do you enjoy looking and feeling your best?  Then this energy boosting, make-yourself-radiant Coconut-Blueberry Shake is right up your alley! 

Plus it tastes amazing! (Think cross between malted milkshake & nut-brittle candy.)

I predict this exotic combination of flavors will fall into your weekly repertoire.  It's a recipe I can whip up on the busiest of days knowing I'll love the taste and be doing something great for my body.

Wild blueberries pack a healthy punch of phytonutrients, antioxidants & anti-inflammatories, while coconut milk nourishes and moisturizes the hair and skin.  Toasted pecans provide 19 vitamins and minerals, protein and... well, you get the idea!  It's fabulous in every respect so you'll just have to try it:-)

Ingredients (Serves 2)

1 cup frozen wild blueberries

3/4 cup light coconut milk

2 tablespoons water

2 1/2 tablespoons toasted pecans (or substitute roasted almond butter or toasted almonds)

1 1/2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a blender combine the blueberries, coconut milk, water, toasted nuts (or nut butter), honey and vanilla extract.  Blend until smooth. Enjoy!

NOTE:  If you don't have a heavy-duty blender like a Vitamix, use Almond Butter (or another nut butter- preferably roasted) instead of the toasted nuts to ensure a silky-smooth shake.
