This smoothie is high in protein, it has a good dose of healthy fats and it will replenish your energy stores. . plus it is packed with antioxidants to further help your body’s recovery!

This meal will take five minutes or less to prepare and it is a great option for the summer days that are fast approaching. Check it out below and give it a shot. I guarantee you will like it.

Here are a list of the ingredients you will need to prepare your smoothie. You should be able to find all the ingredients at your local Safeway or health food store, but if they don’t have what you’re looking for you can find it online.

½ cups coconut meat

½ cup blueberries

½ cup raspberries

1 serving pack Sambazon Açai unsweetened
