Blushing Coconut Flour Smoothie

Do you like to start your day with a smoothie?

I certainly do. As soon as the grass peeks it’s way through the snow, you can hear my magic bullet zinging away in the wee hours of the morning. I’ll have one for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or even dessert.

That might mean around 40 smoothies a month. Can you imagine how boring it would be if I didn’t switch it up every now and then?

You’ve seen me use coconut flour in my baking, but I’ve got a new twist for you this time. Try adding coconut flour to your smoothies. First, whisk the coconut flour with water. The coconut flour will absorb the water and any grainy texture will disappear in your smoothie.

Just one tablespoon of coconut flour is enough to add 2.5 g of fibre and a little dose of iron. Sprinkle in some chia seeds for a little more fibre and Omega-3 fatty acids.

Why would you want Omega-3s?

Good question. Our bodies need Omega-3s to run smoothly (more specifically, read here or here).  We don’t produce them on their own, so we must obtain them from our diet. Ch-ch-ch-chia!

The coconut flavour is very mild, unlike the strong taste of coconut milk and coconut butter. Just a lovely little, “Oh, what’s that?” as you lick your lips.

As with most of my recipes, this smoothie is lightly sweetened. It will start your day off right. If you like your smoothies on the sweeter side, add a touch of honey.

I hope you enjoy smoothies as often as me. I may have underestimated 40 smoothies a month.

Shh, don’t tell. I’m blushing. :)

    I would have never thought to have put coconut flour in a smoothie – but it looks delicious! I love smoothies but don’t make them enough since the blender is in a spot that is a pain to get out. haha – man I can be lazy sometimes!

      Oh I’ve definitely done that with other kitchen equipment. Haha. My magic bullet solved all my smoothie woes when I got it. I used to have them only once a week, if that. But now it just has to be everyday!
