Cocoa Banana, Goji Berry, Coconut Milk Smoothie Recipe

Cocoa Banana Goji Berry Coconut Milk Smoothie
Cocoa Banana Goji Berry Coconut Milk Smoothie

This vegan recipe was born from Michelle Phillips Lotus’s “Exotic Chocolate Milk Recipe.” I am always looking to super concentrate my nutrients, and some ingredients I often use were calling to me to be added to the “Exotic Chocolate Milk Recipe.” The ingredients turn the milk into a smoothie, and both now have a place in my diet (smile).

I am not usually concerned with taste, as I make mostly vegetable juices with concentrated nutrients to detoxify and strengthen my system. In this case I didn’t want to take away from the treat of the milk recipe, but I still wanted to concentrate the nutrients, while keeping it a treat. I was successful.

Bam! Bam! Bam! That’s how this smoothie had me feeling, like Bam Bam, from the Flintstones (smile). Super concentrated nutrients and taste!

  • The Goji berries give the smoothie a berry sweetened taste, contains super antioxidants and improves circulation
  • Cacao powder gives it a chocolate taste and contains super antioxidants
  • Coconut milk adds a slightly coconut flavor, and contains the beneficial lauric acid to fight disease
  • Bananas add a good sweet taste and are a good source of the electrolyte potassium necessary for optimal muscle and nerve function
  • Hemp seeds contain all the essential amino acids, and contain omega 3 and omega 6 essential fatty acids

    Dear Aqiyl, I found you by looking up Dr. Sebi for something I now forgot what was. Anyway I saw your Video and was so surprised of your age, I was thinking you were only a younger man of maybe 25 but defiantly not 45. So we are both in on Dr Sebi’s diet. Great. I just got started and have been doing like you, given up a little at the time, but now I gave everything up even my Coffee. All I do is juicing and eating raw “stuff”.
    Best to you and thanks for your help on your web site

      Anette, BLESSINGS!!!!!
      It is my pleasure I am glad I have been able to help. Keep up your extraordinary work! P.S. The lifestyle has worked wonders. I am 47 now and look and feel younger than I did at 45. Soon I will be a baby again. :) LOL!
