Raspberry Coconut Shortcake Green Smoothie


 

Raspberry Coconut Shortcake Green Smoothie

Who says you can’t have dessert for breakfast? This gorgeous Raspberry Coconut Green Smoothie is a family favorite. Bright, tart raspberries are blended with creamy coconut milk, sweet coconut water, iron-rich spinach, and a spoonful of flax seed. It’s just the thing when you’re craving something fruity, sweet, and healthy.

The deep red color of raspberries means that they are high in antioxidants which can help prevent cancer and other diseases. It’s also important to include lignans in your diet, and flaxseeds are an excellent source. Lignans may reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes. So drink up and reap the benefits of starting your day the healthiest way possible…with a delicious green smoothie.

    Hi is there any difference between the grounded flex and the hold?

    Hi Regina!

    Thank you so much for reaching out! Both ground and whole flax seed provide our bodies with a healthy dose of insoluble fiber. One of the bonuses of ground flax seed, however, is that, since it is broken down, our bodies can benefit from the insoluble fiber of the outer shell PLUS the soluble fiber that’s contained inside the seed. When eating whole flax seeds, they tend to pass right through the digestive system without being broken down, so we eliminate the soluble fiber. If you have whole flax seed on hand and want to add more soluble fiber to your diet, you can always grind the seeds in a coffee grinder!

    Hope that helps :). Happy Blendin’!

    When you list coconut milk are you referring to coconut milk from a can or in a container in the refrigerated section of the grocery store (like cow’s milk or almond milk)? Is there a difference?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    Great question! The container doesn’t matter, as much as, making sure you’re reaching for coconut milk + not coconut creme. Coconut creme is higher in fat + has a custard like consistency…reach for coconut milk which is lighter + has a more milk like texture.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi have have grounded flex seed is that ok to put in a smoothie? Is there any difference in the ones that are not grounded?When will your book be coming out?I have lots of bananas in my freezer and they are change color to like a brown look is it ok to still use them in a smoothie?

    Hi Regina,

    Great questions! Ground flaxseed is a great choice! Adding flaxseed in ground form to your green smoothie helps your body absorb all of its nutritional benefits!

    We’re so excited! Our book hits shelves on November 3rd! You can pre-order our book online now, and get rawesome bonus goodies! Or pick it up in Target, Walmart, Barnes & Noble, or Sam’s Club!

    Bananas changing color in the freezer? No worries! It’s a natural reaction to freezing, the taste + nutrition is still there!

    Cheers to health, happiness, + leafy greens! 🙂

    Hi! I absolutely love so many of your recipes! If I don’t have flaxseed is there a good replacement? Thanks!
