To make this raw food smoothie, you’ll need to get your hands on some raw young coconut meat. You can do this by buying and cracking a young coconut. Increasingly, raw young coconut meat is available in the freezer section. You’ll also need raw, fresh coconut water. This is the water from a young fresh coconut, not a mature brown one. Choose raw fresh coconut water, either from a fresh whole coconut or you can buy it in the cold section of some stores. Fresh coconut water is completely different, and far superior, to canned or otherwise processed products.
Here are your ingredients: fresh raw coconut water, raw fresh coconut meat, mangoes. I prefer to use frozen mango for ease and texture.
Blend the coconut water and coconut milk first. Once this is smooth, add the mango. Enjoy!
