Choc Coconut Smoothie

Choc Coconut Smoothie

Vegan  –  Gluten Free  –  Low sugar  –  Dairy Free, Anti- Candida, Diabetic Friendly, Paleo

Love  the sound of chocolate for breakfast?  Then this smoothie is for you!  Packed with antioxidants, essential minerals like potassium and magnesium, good fats from coconut oil and chia seeds, and easy to digest protein. Throw away the diet shakes, because this smoothie will have you feeling full through to lunch time because it’s packed with nutrition and made from REAL ingredients!   Kids love this smoothie because it tastes better than milo and is packed with nutrition and it’s a perfect meal replacement if you are following my Eat Yourself Healthy  program.

What you’ll need…

  • 200ml fresh coconut – I recommend fresh over packaged,or you can use unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • Flesh of one young coconut (alternatively add a heaped tablespoon shredded or desiccated coconut)
  • 1 – Tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 1 dessert spoon cacao nibs and or cacao powder
  • 1-2 dessert spoons of protein powder – I recommend organic pea or hemp seed protein powder
  • 1 dessert spoon of chia seeds
  • 1 frozen banana (optional)
  • Ice (if not using frozen banana)

How to make…

  • Take one young coconut and using a meat cleaver (you can use a large knife, but be sure to use one with a sharp blade) to make a large triangle opening in the top.
  • Add to a blender coconut water and scoop out the coconut meat using a spoon (alternatively you can add dry shredded coconut)
  • Add the chopped banana, unsweetened almond or coconut milk,  protein powder, coconut oil, chia seeds, cacao nibs and powder and ice and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into 2 large glasses to serve and power through your day!

  1. HI Elaine

    The vital Greens and protein powder are great aren’t they!
    Glad you are enjoying my website, I am in the process of writing a recipe book to go with the Eat Yourself Healthy In 28 Day program, which currently does include a lot of recipes. Whilst my program is not strictly vegetarian, many of the recipes can be adapted for vegetarians, so you may want to wait until the launch of the recipe book, and for now check out the recipes on my blog to get a feel for my recipes. be sure to sign up for my weekly newsletter on my blog which will keep you up to date on the release of the EYH recipe book! Cheers Sally

  3. Hi Michelle I add all the fresh coconut water and flesh, but the recipe generally makes enough for two serves, so unless you’re sharing with someone, you could drink as much of it as you feel like and then any left over portion keep in the fridge for morning or afternoon tea. Just be sure to give it a good stir before drinking if you keep it in the fridge a while. Sal

  5. Just wondering how much of the coconut you would use per person for this? the whole coconut or just half of it?

  7. Hi Sally
    Discovered your website when googling for a review of Vital Greens Pea Protein. Have been taking Vital Greens for 3 months and love it! Prior to that was making the Glowing Green Smoothie byKimberley Snyder ofThe Beauty Detox Solution. I have been a vegetarian for 36 years & always interested in nutrition & health.
    Really enjoyed your website & would like to ask how inclusive your recipe book is of vegtarian options. Thanks Elaine
