I developed this recipe for a bunch of my girlfriends hopping over for a brunch one weekend, and realized I just had to add a sexy topping to these smoothies! Why not toasted coconut? With sweet banana, tart strawberries and flavorful toasted coconut, this recipe was born to please anyone.
2 cups unsweetened coconut milk drink
2 cups organic frozen strawberries
2 tablespoons coconut shavings (divided)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 scoop organic & delish strawberry burst protein powder (optional, but I love it!)
1 teaspoon bee pollen
Combine all ingredients and one tablespoon of the coconut in a blender and blend until smooth.
Toast remaining coconut shavings in the oven for a few minutes at 350 degrees in the upper third of oven. Let cool, then finish smoothie with remaining tablespoon of toasted coconut. Serve immediately.
