Chef Nelda of the ARIIX Kitchen teaches Deanna how to make a delicious morning smoothie full of vitamins, fiber, protein and healthy fats that is sure to get your day off to a cool and satisfying start.
The Lime in the Coconut PureNourish Smoothie adds creamy coconut and tangy lime to a base of PureNourish, strawberries and cucumbers, for a shake with a tropical zing that is as refreshing as it is nourishing.
3/4 cup coconut milk, such as “So Delicious Milk Drink,” or coconut water
2 scoops PureNourish Natural
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
1/4 c or 3 large strawberries
1-2 teaspoons coconut butter (such as Nutiva Organic Coconut Manna)
Lime zest to taste (optional)
5-6 ice cubes
Blend the coconut milk/water and PureNourish on low for 30 seconds. Set blender to medium and add lime juice, cucumber, strawberries, coconut butter and optional lime zest, and blend until completely smooth. (You may increase coconut butter to 2 teaspoons if using coconut water.) Switch blender to high and add ice, mixing until frothy. Serve immediately.
