Even if it has presented itself in a glass.

*optional super food add-ins/or substitutions:

    • substitute 1 1/2 raw goat/cow milk, homemade kefir, or yogurt for the thai coconut meat and coconut water
    • add 2 TBS butter oil or 100% organic virgin coconut oil
    • add 2 egg yolks (pastured farm/ranch eggs from a reliable source) to your smoothie
    • Great Lakes Gelatin Collagen Hydrolysate  (6 grams of protein per tablespoon).  The collagen is also great for your hair, skin, nails, and connective tissue. I have also heard that it is good for cellulite, and is highly recommended for people who are trying to heal their guts.
