You know those times where you have a young fresh coconut just lying around, in the fridge? Yeah, you know those times. Well, I quite literally had a young fresh coconut hanging out in my fridge for the past week and I kept thinking of what I wanted to do with it until I was inspired to make something creamy, inflammation fighting, with a kick of citrus yet sweet- herein lies the fruits of my labor. The Golden Coconut Smoothie!

Notes
If you don’t have access to fresh young coconuts, use organic boxed coconut water and frozen coconut meat, both brands mentioned in the blog post.

 Don’t have fresh young coconut on hand? No worries, use coconut water and frozen coconut meat; otherwise you can pick up fresh young coconuts at your local health food stores and international markets.

Cheers to coconuts!
