Vanilla Breakfast Smoothie

serving Size: 1

Preparation Time: 6 minutes

Ingredients

½ cup Coconut milk (or milk of choice) – Shogun coconut milk is a great choice as it contains no thickeners or artificial ingredients. Available at most supermarkets.

1 tbsp. natural sweetener of choice (Xylitol/ stevia/raw honey) – these are all available at any health store

Vanilla extract

1 tbsp. macadamia nut butter

1 scoop natural protein powder

4 crushed walnuts

2 tsp. desiccated coconut
