With summer in full swing, what better way to cool off than sipping on a delicious smoothie! Full of vitamins and protein, these recipes are sure to please.



CHUNKY MONKEY COFFEE
1 cup coffee, cold
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Serve this up to those cranky people in the office who need coffee before work. After serving up this concoction you may find them beaming with a childlike demeanor … and now you know why I keep a blender and these staples in my office. If you like any of the peanut butter ice creams, this has a similar flavor.

RASPBERRY CHEESECAKE SMOOTHIE
100 grams raspberries, frozen
1 tablespoon cream cheese
100 milliliters almond milk, or your favorite milk

Add all the ingredients to a blender. Drink. No fork necessary. Add some coconut flakes on top.


GOJI BERRY SMOOTHIE BOWL
2 tablespoon Goji berries
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 cup strawberries, frozen
raspberry protein powder
200 milliliers water

Add the water and Goji Berries to the blender. Let sit for at least 10 minutes to soften the berries. Add the remaining ingredients and blend. You can drink it straight up. You can also dump it in a bowl and decorate a bit with more chia seeds, goji berries, banana, and pecans. 



MANGO SMOOTHIE
1/2 mango
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1 tablespoon coconut oil
200 milliliters flaxseed milk
1 handful strawberries

I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder since I like my smoothies to be complete meals, but you can just as easily not add it. Add more flaxseed milk to thin it out. 

GRAPEFRUIT SMOOTHIE
1 grapefruit
50 grams frozen strawberries
50 grams Goji berries
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon coconut oil

Juice the grapefruit by hand or by machine. Soak the goji berries for about 10 minutes in a glass of water to soften them. Toss everything in a blender. Enjoy. Add water to thin it out.
