Creamy Blueberry Coconut Smoothie

Image

The other day I had just enough extra young coconut pulp on hand from making another recipe that I decided to throw it into a blueberry smoothie. It was SO good! Smooth, creamy, flavourful, and full of nutrition. You could replace the blueberries with any other berry that you have on hand. Strawberries, blackberries, or raspberries would be great.

The hemp seed, bee pollen, and goji berries turn this into a superfood smoothie! If you haven’t had Jarrah bee pollen, you’re in for a special treat. Besides being full of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids, this special Australian pollen is super crunchy and sweet! In fact, I do not eat any other bee pollen. Nothing else compares. Whenever I go to Australia I eat jarrah bee pollen by the kilogram because it was so accessible and inexpensive.
