Frozen Snowflake New Year's Blue Smoothie

I hope that everyone had a very good start into a New Year. I am in celebratory mood despite the cold weather here in Roswell. To match the mood and the outside temperatures, I made a delicious smoothie and hope you will have a chance to try the recipe. It is very simple. You only need a few ingredients. 


~ Frozen Snowflake New Year's Blue Smoothie ~

Ingredients:

for the smoothie
  • 3 cups Thai style coconut milk (make your own if you can)
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/3 cup raw vegan protein powder
  • 1/3 cup raw coconut flakes
  • 1/3 cup crushed ice (optional)
  • 1/3 cup dried Thai blue butterfly pea flowers

for garnish
  • 1/4 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice


Method:
  • Pour coconut milk into a jar. Add dried butterfly pea flowers and let them sit in coconut milk until the milk turns indigo blue. 
  • Meanwhile, dip your smoothie glasses in lime juice and in coconut flakes to make decorative rims.
  • Remove the petals and transfer the blue milk into a jar of your blender.
  • Toss chopped ripe bananas into the blender. Add coconut flakes and protein powder and blend until all ingredients are well combined. Stir in crushed ice if you want to.
  • Pour your blue smoothie into glasses and enjoy in good company!


Tip: If the exotic blue butterfly pea flowers are hard to come, you can create the blue effect by simply blending a handful of blueberries with rest of the ingredients. 


Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy New Year 
- in radiant health, passionately raw - Dominique
