Chef Joey's Young Coconut Smoothie

READY IN: 25mins




  • Grind up the cacao nibs in a coffee mill until it resembles coco powder. Set aside.
  • Clean the berries and set aside.
  • With a hammer and pointed screw driver make three holes in the top of the two young coconuts. Drain the milk out into a large measuring cup through a sieve.
  • Cut the two young coconuts in half. My hubby uses his table saw and it works very nicely for this.
  • Rinse the coconut insides to remove any of the outer shell that might have coated the coconut flesh.
  • Scrape out all the flesh, get every bit as it's so delicious.
  • Put the flesh and the coconut milk into a blender and process until well combined.
  • Put the coconut mixture through the sieve again to remove the little pieces of shell. Put the coconut mixture into a container and set aside.
  • Clean out the blender cup and lid and put the coconut milk/flesh mixture back into it. Add the one cup coconut milk or non-dairy milk, the banana, the ground cacao, vanilla, cinnamon and berries.
  • Process until smooth and creamy.
  • Drink ASAP!
  • Bon Appetit!
