Love Potion Smoothie

I am in the process of creating this blog into a website (yay!) and have not wanted to add any new recipes since they will all have to be transferred over to the new site soon. But! It's Valentine's Day, and I couldn't resist.

This smoothie is more decadent that the usual healthy drink I make for myself in the morning because it uses coconut milk for the liquid. Thick, rich, creamy coconut milk from a can, not the watery milk version from a carton.

Don't shake the can before opening. Instead allow the liquid to stay separate and scrape a few large dollops of the thick stuff off the top to use for the garnish on your drink. It looks like whipped cream but tastes like coconut heaven. A few sprinkles of shaved coconut add nice texture, too.

The drink is vibrant pink/red from raspberries, strawberries, and cherries. (Frozen fruit works best for smoothies.) Red berries have powerful antioxidants that help your skin glow so you will look amazing on your date tonight.

If you are staying home with Ben & Jerry then you can be beautiful just for you.

More info on the new website soon. Happy Valentine's Day!
