Fresh, Fruity, & Fabulous

Smoothies are not just for breakfast!
Enjoy them as snacks when the afternoon blues hit or serve them in a little cup as dessert when visitors come to dinner.

With the coming new moon and spring equinox on March 20th, these recipes will uplift you and inspire you to sow seeds of intention for the season to come.

Each one of these recipes features coconut, which helps to tonify and nourish your hormonal and digestive systems and bring the balance that's synonymous with this time of year.

Coconut: saturated fat, solid at room temperature, is a plant-based alternative to saturated animal fats. It stimulates brain function and promotes intestinal motility.

Its anti-bacterial action makes it an important fat to choose during times of illness or infection and is specifically indicated for combating intestinal parasites. 

This food is considered sacred by people from the Indonesian Archipelago to the Indian Sub-Continent because of its potent healing properties.
