Nuts For Dem Coconuts!

Lately, I have been crazy, and I am getting even crazier about coconuts. I am buying them on a daily basis, and trying different recipes and smoothies with them,  as healthy bars, or just snacking on them. The level of my coconut obsession is pretty high at the moment and I am loving it !

I was always falling in love with these cute, little, coconut smoothie bowls while watching them on Instagram, so I decided to give them a try and use my coconuts as smoothie bowls. Once I put that creamy, fruity mixture inside the coconuts, they officially won the game for most beautiful smoothie bowls ever!Todays delicious, yummy treat is a combination of raspberry, banana & pineapple in a coconut shell, topped with chia seeds. It is super easy, gluten and dairy free, and I believe that everyone of you can enjoy this smoothie as your breakfast, snack at work, or maybe even as lunch. Also, don’t forget that what makes it super pretty is if you pour it into an actual coconut.

First things first: Let me tell you that you can’t find and buy already cracked coconuts in the store(at least here where I live, they have still not come up with such a smart idea). Anyways, what you need to do is to buy the coconut first, then you need to break it in half so you have two little smoothie bowls. If you don’t know how to do it, I will advise you to read my post “In Love With The Coco(nut)”, you will find it very helpful, I promise!

Once you have the coconut shells ready, put all the ingredients into a blender, mix them and… Bam! You have a yummy, delicious, and such a tropical smoothie for your booty!image1 (1)

The taste of this smoothie bowl will make you feel like you are laying under the shade of a palm tree in Hawaii… So, if you can’t travel to some tropical place at the moment, bring that tropical mood into your home with this yummy treat.
