Nourishing Warrior Smoothie

This drink is dynamic. I’m sipping the glorious marriage of such nourishing ingredients, and as a lover of words and flavors, this is what is coming to me:

Nourishing Warrior, Gleaming Spirit.


Comprised of coconut water, coconut jelly/meat, blackberries, and Maca, it has everything I could want to fuel my body and inspire my soul. It’s bursting with nutrition, for example:

Coconuts are a great source of healthy saturated fats (they help you lose weight, help your brain, etc…), are rich in ascorbic acid, B vitamins, and protein, and the water is abundant in electrolytes!

Blackberries are a low-glycemic fruit, are blooming with anti-oxidants, and are great for digestion and fueling the brain.

Maca is a super-food root that is an incredible aphrodisiac, hormone balancer, mood booster, and skin health enhancer.

And not only is this concoction of all  ingredients delicious, it’s simple to make – 3 minutes and you’re in heavenly bliss.


Nourishing Warrior Smoothie


2 Young Thai Coconuts

1 Cup Blackberries (frozen or fresh)

1 Tbsp Maca Powder


1) Open your Young Thai Coconut (see here if you don’t yet know how to do this), pour the water into a high-speed blender. The Blendtec is a great option.

2) Scoop out your coconut meat (optimal should be smooth and jelly-like). Add your remaining ingredients.


3) Blend on high until smooth and creamy.

That’s it! Enjoy! This recipe will nourish and enliven your being… Use that extra creativity to do something you’ve always wanted, and revel in your ability to create and be whatever you want.
