4 Ingredients Coconut Blueberry Smoothie

To make this delicious smoothie I used fresh young coconut. I hope you are able to obtain one. Some Asian supermarkets and organic food stores carry young coconuts at least from time to time. 

The water of young coconut is a wonderful isotonic thirst quencher that contains electrolytes of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium in their most natural form. Unlike commercially sold coconut water, coconut water straight from a young coconut is raw since it does not undergo any form of processing. Meat of young coconut is rich in fiber, potassium and B vitamins, including folate.

To sweeten my smoothie I used coconut blossom syrup which has a slightly smoky taste of blackstrap molasses mixed with caramel. This syrup is considered to be one of the healthiest sweeteners on the market since it has a very low glycemic index and does not spike the blood sugar. However, like any sweet substance, it should be used in moderation.

  • 1 1/2 cup fresh young coconut water
  • 1/2 cup young coconut meat
  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh of frozen)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut blossom syrup

  • Blend all ingredients in a blender until perfectly smooth. You may add a few ice cubes if you are using fresh blueberries.
  • Pour smoothie into glasses and enjoy it in good company!
