Cherry Chocolate Coconut Smoothie!

Thank you for stopping by little island studios, please subscribe by email to follow along in family fun!

Good morning, Moms!  I made this over the weekend - absolutely delicious! It is now our favorite smoothie!


Ingredients:

10 oz of Frozen Organic Cherries
5 oz of Frozen Organic Wild Blueberries
3/4 cup of Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
1/2 cup of Orange Juice (add a bit more if you need it)

1/2 cup chocolate chips (high percentage of cocoa) completely optional (this smoothie is fabulous even without yummy chocolate!)

I also stir in a teaspoon of Turmeric to my glass - super great health benefits and I can't taste it.  ( I know...you're grossed out :)

Blend on Smoothie Setting and Voila!
Enjoy!

This is not a sponsored post. I purchased my ingredients at Whole Foods (have I mentioned I love Whole Foods?).  The Blendtec - was sponsored on a previous post & I love it!  Kind of freaks me out though...SO powerful! Just a note - if Whole Foods is reading this and would like me to be their fabulous new foodie blogger...the answer if YES!  ;D

I've been making smoothie drinks for the kids almost every single day. I add yogurt and I've been using Orange-peach-mango juice which is yummy.
