Berry Cherry Coconut Shake

Berry Cherry Coconut Shake

This is a thirst quenching flavour packed beauty of a drink, we have it for breakfast, as a snack and frozen into lollies if there are leftovers. Mondays always seem to be a good day to start off with a smoothie, set the plan for the week and keep as free of bugs and full of energy as possible.

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups coconut milk
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1/2 Cup frozen blackberries (or available berries)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp milled goji, linseeds (Linwoods healthfoods do great packets of milled seeds
  • Optional scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds to top (not for small infants for risk of choking)

Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend for a minute or two. Drink straight away, keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 hours, or freeze into lolly moulds.

    Hi Lizzie, I’m new to making smoothies and I would love to try the berry cherry coconut shake, iv looked on linwoods website and I’m struggling to find milled goji, linseeds. I was wondering do they have another name plus I’m also new to all the healthy seeds and nuts. Iv made the overnight chia strawberry sundae both me and my 10 year old son love it, so thank you.

    • Hi there Deborah. So pleased you’ve loved that recipe. It’s a tasty one. I think the linwoods pack is called linseeds, goji and sunflower. Look on ocado they have lots of them. Do ask more questions I’m so happy to answer. X

  2. Hi Lizzie,
    I just wondered when you say coconut milk, do you mean from a tin or do they sell a carton, if so which do you recommend? Thanks xoxo

      Hi. They sell coconut milk drink in cartons. Go to the dairy free milk section of any supermarket. Check its unsweetened. X

  3. Hi, I hear a lot about how it is unhealthy when you make fruit into smoothies what is your view on this as I am keen to make smoothies, however I have read that the fruit sugars in smoothies can add extra calories.

      Fruit in juices is not great. As you get the fructose with no fibre. But in a smoothie some fruit is fantastic.
