Question from Sheri
Thank you for your latest recipe for Coconut Water . For the last few months I have been making a smoothie for my daughter with young coconut water & meat (she has numerous food allergies and dysphagia which requires thick consistency drinks so she does not aspirate). I had not considered drinking just the water for myself and the idea of the lime with the coconut sounds yummy. I can’t wait to try it. I read your smoothie recipe and thought I would share mine in case anyone wanted something without any dairy.
Water & meat from 1 young coconut
1 cup green leafy vegetable (spinach, kale, etc.)
2 cups frozen or fresh fruit (any combination you would like – my favorite is pear raspberry, my daughter’s favorite is all mango)
Cut up fruit & veggie a bit and them place everything in a blender and blend until smooth. If my fruit is a bit tart I will sometimes add just a bit of agave or honey to taste, but usually it is very good just like it is. A great way to get your green veggies without even knowing they are there.
Thanks again Debra for your newsletter and website – they are fantastic. I also want to tell you how excited I am about the new direction for sweet savvy recipes – I am right there with you, now that I have broken the refined sugar habit, I want to take it a step healthier for me and my family.
