You’ll notice that most of my smoothie recipes are fruit-free. That is because I tend to avoid fruits that are high in sugar! But I also recognize that most people love bananas in their smoothies… I mean, bananas are the ultimate way to make a nice, creamy smoothie. And hey, I’m not a robot! Every once in a while it’s nice to have a banana smoothie! Recently my friends at Pearl Butter sent me their multi-color coconut butters (the colors are thanks to different adaptogens and superfoods used in each), and I decided the butters would be AMAZING in a smoothie. Both visually and taste-wise! And I was RIGHT! Introducing my Unicorn Smoothie…
What You Will Need:
1.5 Cup Unsweetened Original Coconut Milk
1-2T Beauty Butter (I got it from Pearl Butter, and the pink is thanks to Pitaya!)
1 Scoop Vanilla Coconut Collagen (Primal Kitchen Brand or Vital Proteins)
*Sub vegan vanilla protein for vegan smoothie
1T Chia Seeds
1/2T Brain Octane or MCT Oil (Optional)
What You Will Do:
Add all items to a Vitamix, starting with the nut milk. Blend on high for 40-50 seconds.
Pour into a jar or glass, and add your toppings! I added Adaptogenic Butters from Pearl Butter (yellow is turmeric and blue is spirulina). Enjoy!!
