Blueberry Smoothie with Organic Peppermint Coconut Oil

 

 

 

2 Tb Nature's Approved® Organic Extra Virgin peppermint Coconut Oil 

2 cups blueberries (frozen is best for an ice cream texture, fresh is OK for a more liquid smoothie) 

2 scoops (about 1 oz) whey protein 

2-8 Tb water  

In blender, process blueberries and 2-4 Tb water until smooth but not liquid.  Add 2 cups whey protein or your protein mix of choice.  If not already liquid, put a jar of coconut oil into warm water, until liquid.  Add 2Tb coconut oil to mixture.  Add more water if needed to get the right consistency.  Result should be smooth and firm so that you can eat it with a spoon!  It is like ice cream and requires no sugar or additional flavoring... If you want a looser, drinkable smoothie, add water or juice until desired consistency is achieved.

 

Blueberries are full of antioxidants particularly anthrocyanadins, which are great for scavenging free radicals in the eyes and brain, helping better sight and thinking. 

 

 

Chocolate Bar made with Organic Peppermint Coconut Oil

 

 

 
1-1½  Tb cocoa powder  
1/8 tsp low-carb sweetener, such as stevia or ¼ tsp xylitol (Start small amount of sweetener and add more according to your taste) 
 
Optional ingredients: 
1/4 cup raisins  
1 Tb almonds, finely chopped  
Cinnamon to taste (I usually use ¼ tsp)
 
Melt the coconut oil to a liquid, add in cocoa powder and sweetener. Stir to combine and blend well. If adding any optional ingredients, blend in. Pour mixture into something like a “Ziploc Snap ‘n Seal Container”. Pop it in refrigerator or freezer on a level shelf and let it sit 20 minutes or so. It will harden quickly.  Just pop the bar out and break into pieces and ENJOY! 

This recipe is great for diabetics or people on low-carb diets.... or just people in general!
