Ok so the colour looks a bit yuk! But this was a delicious morning sweet kick!  Fresh coconut meat with banana and spirulina for an extra nutritional boost!  😄  My fave nutritional supplement at the moment…just throw all the ingredients below into a blender and whizz up for breakfast or great for a post run energy boost!

one banana

coconut water from one young green coconut (these look white in the super market as the hard green bit has been chopped)

flesh from the inside of the coconut

1 tsp spirulina (1/2 if first time)

Fruity salad smoothie!  Great for breakfast…I made this quickly for the kids this morning as we were running late as per usual! 😊  It’s fruity and also contains Acai berry powder which adds an additional boost of nutrition.  Acai berry powder comes from the acai palm tree which is native to central and South America.  It’s packed with antioxidants, amino acids, fibre, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals.

– small handful of strawberries

– small handful of blueberries

– half a pear

– tablespoon of acai berry

– water or coconut water to top up

Add everything to the blender and blend, pour drink!  Enjoy!

– coconut water

– 1 tablespoon of lucuma

Add all the ingredients in the smoothies, chop up if nessecary and top up with enough water to create the desired consistency!

Pour, drink and enjoy! 😊
