Smoothie #1

Hot Pink Breakfast Smoothie
adapted from: Green Smoothie Girl

this is copy and pasted from my post on facebook, so pardon any typos - it's all the iphone's fault *wink*

3/4 cup coconut milk (I got the canned and use 1/2, but I'm going to get the concentrate - this is where my adaptation starts because I wanted a thinner smoothie)
3/4 cup water
1 medium to large carrot - washed, top cut off, but not peeled - cut into 3 pieces - smaller if you don't have a high power blender...
1/2 beet - washed and peeled - cut into smaller pieces depending on your blender
1/4 cup cashews (raw is best)
1/4 cup pitted chopped dates (I use whole pitted)
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. flax oil (I used lemonade flavor, but whatever you have)
9-12 frozen strawberries

Blend the heck out of everything, except the strawberries. Add the strawberries in last and blend again until smooth.

I also thought that you could swap out the strawberries for a cup of frozen peaches - being brought to mind by the fact that I just ran out of frozen strawberries! LOL

You'll want a thick straw, because this is a thick smoothie. Makes a quart that is very filling! Also gets in 4 servings of fruits and veggies, plus your raw nuts and coconut fatty goodness!
