Recipe Directions

Open the young coconut and drain the water into a bowl. Scoop out the young coconut pulp. Add young coconut pulp and water to the blender, along with the other ingredients.
Start blending on low, scrape down the mixture. Then turn up the blender to high until well blended. Pour into a large glass and enjoy!
I find this smoothie works best with the meaty kind of young coconut. If you don’t have enough young coconut pulp, you can open another young coconut. If you have only one young coconut, you can add coconut flour, dried coconut, or some avocado to thicken up the mixture.
Variation: Use 1) macadamia nuts (soaking optional, 1-2 hours) for a milder flavor (you might want to increase amount of coconut water because of the high oil content of mac nuts), or 2) hemp seeds (unsoaked) or almonds (soaked 10-12 hours) for a lighter smoothie.

I like to keep it simple myself. I'll spend a little more time on a smoothie or a nice entree once in a while, but I'm not one to spend a ginormous amount of time in the kitchen. :)

That sounds good, i must admit as a newbie i've found most of the superfood recipes to be a bit too much! But this looks manageable, thanks :).
