For a short silly moment I thought that there was no point in sharing this recipe on the blog as if it wasn’t special or creative enough, but then I clicked back into reality and realized that people ask me all day long for ANY new recipe that combines fresh foods + nutrient dense superfoods (especially using the Longevity Power product line), and so this delicious one must be shared! IT IS VERY SPECIAL.
I especially adore mangoes, raw chocolate, Goji Joy, and coconut water and this combination is what my heart was set on when making this divinely blended creation earlier this afternoon before another 1.5 hour hike in the hills near my home. Read food fuels amazing workouts!
MANGO CHOCOLATE GOJI JOY SMOOTHIE
1 cup organic raw coconut water
1.5-2 frozen organic bananas
1 fresh organic altaulfo mango
2+ teaspoons organic raw chocolate powder
1.5 frozen organic medjool dates, pitted
1-2 teaspoons Goji Joy (goji berry extract)
1/2 teaspoon organic lucuma powder
Blend on high until it’s very smooth, pour into beautiful glasses with glass straws or a spoon if you like, and serve to those you cherish, and those that cherish their health! Decorate with fresh local bee pollen and heirloom organic raw vegan chocolate chips!
What I love the most about including GOJI JOY in this daily shake is that it lends a gentle sweetness without adding loads of sugar, it’s exceptionally wonderful for the immune system because it’s so high in polysaccharides (who doesn’t want to always be healthy), and it’s a stellar mood-lifter that you actually FEEL – and is rightfully known as the HAPPY BERRY! Let’s all be more joyful and play more in life, ok?
I’m extra excited for the coconuts and mangoes I’ll have abundant access to in Costa Rica next month. As the chef for the Superfood Detox & Pilates/Yoga Retreat, I’ll be using all the local organic produce I can get my hands on and infusing everything I make with a wide variety of superfood and herbal extracts for extra healing and rejuvenating benefits. Everything you’re served (and that you learn how to make) will be a delicious catalyst for greater vitality!
We’ll sip on herbal tonics, beauty elixirs, fresh fruit, veggie juices, superfood smoothies, savory soups, veggie wraps, vegan desserts, raw chocolate, and more! If you’re called to be there with us and your heart says YES, I invite you to join in on the most life-enhancing adventure in paradise we can possibly put together. Save the dates & book now: April 20-26, 2014.
