Most smoothie recipes are made with fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables as the base. I thought it would be interesting to share a recipe that utilizes dried coconut chips.

My friend Meg shared the Made In Nature products with me and fell in love with their organic maple vanilla toasted coconut chips, and started using them in smoothies just like she has been doing.

This espresso mocha smoothie uses the Italian Espresso Toasted Coconut Chips to give you a coffee flavor like a frappuccino. If you don’t have access to these chips, use 1/4 cup espresso.

Meg adopted a vegan lifestyle after following the Food Babe and cutting out processed foods from her life. After feeling so good on a plant-based diet she started her Meg Unprocessed blog to share recipes, and got a certificate in holistic nutrition to help others reclaim their health.

After producing for FOX in NY, and then the Emmy-nominated Home and Family show on the Hallmark channel, Meg started Unprocessed Productions after being inundated with offers from some of the top brands and bloggers in the world. She now produces videos for bloggers, YouTube personalities, health and wellness companies helping others in the wellness community craft their message.

*Probiotic Powder – I add 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic powder to all smoothies to replenish stores of healthy bacteria for immunity, digestion, detox, and to balance the acidic effects of high-sugar fruits and other sweeteners. The really potent probiotics require refrigeration. If you have capsules, break the shell and release the powder. Unsweetened probiotic-rich liquids like kefirs (water, coconut water, milk varieties) or kombucha make wonderful health-promoting additions to shakes, too.

*Celtic Sea Salt – I add a pinch (or more) of this alkalizing, mineral-rich salt to all smoothies to boost the natural flavor of fruits and veggies; temper the acidity of sweet fruits and sweeteners; stimulate the lymphatic system; replenish electrolytes; aid digestion; and help the body access energy. I do not recommend adding common table salt which is generally heated to extreme temperatures, iodized, bleached, processed, and refined. This salt does not have the same benefits. If you have a health condition that requires you to limit your sodium intake consult your doctor before adding salt to your smoothies.
