Blueberry & Blackberry Coconut Elixir

B_BlueberryBlackberryCoconut1

I'm a berry lover and so when I saw these blueberries and blackberries, I couldn't resist. I've been working on ideas for rejuvenating recipes to create a replenishing beauty cleanse program. Radiance boosting recipes require fresh raw superfoods like blueberries. I found incredibly fresh coconuts at my local Asian supermarket. The coconut I used for this blended elixir was extra succulent, so scooping the coconut meat out of the husk was a buttery cinch. I didn't have very much time this morning for elaborate recipe creating. Even as I write this I may be late for my workout in the gym and workday. But I am dedicated to creating rejuvenating recipes like this for my own regimen as well as to share with you. It's called an elixir rather than a smoothie because I added an aphrodisiac tonic and some acidophilus to the blend.  I'm experimenting with tonics and herbs at the moment. Also, I refrained from adding anything too sugary like honey, so if you need to sweeten your elixir, add dates. Beautifying, healthy and simple.

Maybe I'll figure out a little system of making elixirs like this for an entire day and put them in jars to take along. I really would like to drink down hydrating coconut water mixtures more often.

I couldn't wait to share this with you. I hope you like it.
