Kokomo Detox

Kokomo DetoxHere’s one that we often use called Kokomo Detox. I try to make it once a week, and I’m able to use kale that is so good for you. It is a bright green color – very healthy and delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup pineapple (or pineapple juice)
  • 1 cup Cocos / Cocos Pure coconut water (it is 100% pure – not from concentrate)
  • 2 cups kale

 

Directions:

  1. Just blend and enjoy 🙂

 

Iced Coconut Coffee

Iced Coconut CoffeeHere’s another favorite of ours: cold brew iced coffee made with coconut water. By brewing the coffee cold, it loses the bitterness and acidity and tastes just wonderful over ice.

Here’s how to make it:

    1. Put coarse ground coffee beans in a French press or glass bowl.
    2. Add cold Cocos / Cocos Pure coconut water (it is 100% pure – not from concentrate)
    3. Refrigerate for 12 hours
    4. Strain out the beans or push down the French press plunger.
    5. It will already be sweet from the coconut water, but adding a small drop of cream is heavenly.

 

 

 

This website has great ideas for weight loss smoothies as well: http://www.superskinnyme.com/how-to-make-a-weight-loss-smoothie.html It really is effective to drink smoothies that are high in protein and vitamins when you are on a diet.

 

Cocos / Cocos-Pure Weight Loss Smoothie

Cocos / Cocos-Pure Weight Loss SmoothieThis is one of our favorites. It is so versatile because you can mix and match whatever you have in your fridge at the time.

Here’s how to make one:

      1. Use thickeners such as chia seeds and frozen fruit
      2. Use Cocos / Cocos-Pure as a low fat base. Skip the juices as they are high in calories.
      3. Add a good quality protein powder. One scoop is enough.
      4. Then add one tablespoon of high quality fats such as avocados, nut butters or flax seeds
      5. Go easy on the sweeteners. Use Stevia or other natural sweeteners. Flavor with green tea, ginger or cinnamon instead.
      6. I like to add some unsweetened cocoa powder as well. What could be better than a chocolate drink without the calories?

Coconut Water Smoothies

smoothie-recipes-using-coconut-water_500x333pxCoconut water is a rich liquid full of vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese and zinc. It is also low on sugar, making it a great alternative to the usual soft drinks. In addition, it mixes well with other ingredients to form great smoothies. Coconut water smoothies are the best!

Remember, our Cocos-Pure pure coconut water is without added sugar, preservatives, chemicals or additives.

Cocos-Pure is a great ingredient for smoothies as it is a versatile mixer. Here’s a great resource with pictures. It includes over 50 different coconut water smoothies including high protein smoothies, tropical smoothies, detox smoothies, anti-inflammatory pain relief smoothie and finally a section called “smoothies for everything” such a weight loss, belly buster, muscle building and the energizer.

Smoothies are easiest to make with a blender. Just place or pour the ingredients in and turn on the machine. It’s so fast and nutritious – great for people in a hurry. It’s also a wonderful way to use greens or other ingredients you might not like to eat raw or plain. I myself don’t care much for kale, but mixed into smoothies the taste of kale blends well with pineapple juice, fruit and of course coconut water.

Want more recipes? According to HelloGlow.com, “We’ve talked about the best vitamins for beautiful skin before, but here’s a quick refresher in case you missed it. As we age our skin loses its elasticity, it can start to look dull, those darn age spots might start popping up. Number one important thing to do is stay hydrated. Here are some awesome beauty smoothie ingredients to keep your skin happy and glowing……. This smoothie uses a coconut water base that is not only rehydrating, but a good source of magnesium and potassium, as well as smaller amounts of Vitamins C and B. It’s an excellent way to replenish electrolytes.” The recipe calls for frozen mango and strawberries with fresh carrots and coconut water. I have found that frozen strawberries and mango need to be chopped first before adding to a smoothie. Otherwise they won’t blend and add that thickening quality.

Whatever you like to add, just experiment and discover some awesome combinations on your own. Who knows. You may grow to like coffee in smoothies or how about a chocolate coconut smoothie? The important aspect is to start with fresh, organic ingredients and then build from there. That includes the coconut water produced by Cocos Pure. It’s free of GMOs, food additives and harsh preservatives. You’ll like the taste plain or mixed into one the thousands of smoothie recipes. Try it – you’ll like it.
