This smoothie is one of my new favorites! I made it as a pre-workout smoothie as I was feeling a little tired and low energy, and it worked GREAT as an energy smoothie and small meal replacement! I made this smoothie with my very own homemade coconut milk, but you can use any kind of non-dairy milk you wish.
Let us begin!
You will need:
– 2 to 3 cups coconut milk (to learn how to make your own coconut milk, check out my recipe here)
– 2 frozen bananas
– 1 to 2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
– 1 1/2 tbsp maca powder
– 1 tbsp chia seeds
– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
– 1 scoop vanilla vegan protein powder (I used Merrikh Medical vegan protein powder. To see a list of their paleo and protein powders, check out this link: http://merrikhmedical.com/product-category/protein/)
– bit of shredded coconut or raw coconut meat
Put all the ingredients into a high powered blender, and blend until everything is fully mixed and you have a smooth, creamy smoothie. If you need more liquid, add more coconut milk, coconut water, or regular water. You can also add more fruit if you prefer.
Once everything is fully blended, pour into a glass, top with fresh strawberries and some shredded coconut, and drink up!
