Tropical Coconut-Lime Smoothie (Paleo, Vegan)

Print

We wanted to switch up the method of getting those seeds in every day & after seeing my cute niece tossing her seeds into a smoothie, I just thought “that’s brilliant” and perfect for summer!

Lots of ways to take this smoothie, so switch it up however you see fit. I’m sure I’ll have a cacao variation very soon. Be sure to just switch up the seeds for whichever phase you’re in & sip away!

 

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Ground sesame seeds (also known as tahini) is high in protein, B vitamins and vitamin E. Protein helps support healthy muscles, B vitamins boost energy and vitamin E helps protect against heart disease.

Tropical Coconut-Lime Smoothie (Paleo, Vegan)

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: N/A
  • Servings: 3

Ingredients

¾ full fat coconut milk (or milk of choice)
¾ cup water
1 golden kiwi, peeled & cubed (or regular kiwi)
2 tablespoons of pili nuts
2 tablespoons of shredded coconut
1 tablespoon of ground sesame seeds (or pumpkin)
1 tablespoon of ground sunflower seeds (or ground flax seeds)
1 scoop of Further Food Collagen
zest and juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon of stevia (or sweetener of choice)
pinch of salt
a couple of handfuls of ice

Instructions

  1. Toss all ingredients in a high power blender and spin away.
  2. Add more ice if you like a very thick smoothie or less ice if you like it thinner.
  3. Be sure to blend up long enough to get those seeds completely ground up, otherwise, you will have a “chunky” version,  it won’t be as creamy and you may have to chew a bit.
  4. Garnish with additional lime zest and coconut if desired.
