Amazing Superfood Smoothie!

What's a good name for this?

(Measurements are approximate)

Flesh of 2 young Thai coconuts (can sub with a banana or 2)
Water from 1 young Thai coconut (can sub with pure water)
Blend until creamy.

2 and 1/2 tablespoons raw cacao
1 and 1/2 teaspoons green powder (Use your fave; mine included msm*.)
4-5 dashes cinnamon
1 teaspoon maca*
agave, or other sweetener to taste (I used about 1 tablespoon.)
1 and 1/2 cups ice

Blend again. Enjoy!

*I've noticed in forums that a small minority of people seem to have bad reactions to these ingredients. If you choose to try them, be aware and consider starting with tiny amounts.

No ill-effects for me when having maca (whew!). Love the stuff. And your smoothie sounds great!

I'm loving the maca, too. I was surprised to see how badly some folks on giveittomeraw were reacting to it. Sucks for them.

Yeah, I was also surprised some people thought it smelled bad too. I don't think so at all! Too bad for them! Another good one is mesquite. Love that stuff too.
