Tropical Paradise - Green Smoothie

I was feeling rather lazy this morning, but at the same time, wanted to prepare a smoothie that was somewhat different from my usual. Using my selection of Medicine Flower extracts, I created this fabulous Tropical Paradise. If you are looking to cut back on your intake of fruit or simply wish to expand your ability to create a fabulous mix of flavors, these are so much fun to work with. Warning: they are super concentrated, so you literally only need 1-2 drops per flavor. 
Because they are so concentrated, even when I use the "real" fruit, I will enhance the flavor of my food by adding the same flavor extract. For instance, my smoothie is made with a whole coconut, however, that coconut flavor gets lost with the added ingredients. 1 drop of the Medicine Flower Coconut extract will pop the coconut flavor immensely!

Tropical Paradise Smoothie (for two)

1 young Thai coconut (water and meat)
dandelion or kale (fist full)
1/2 lime, juice
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
1 cup papaya (I cut mine up and freeze it)
2 Tbsp hemp seeds
2 Tbsp chia seeds
1 drop Medicine Flower lemon
2 drops Medicine Flower Apricot
1 drop Medicine Flower Coconut 
2 drops Medicine Flower Vanilla

In a high speed blender, mix coconut meat, water and greens. Add additional filtered water as needed, so that you have enough liquid for two smoothies.

Add remaining ingredients and blend until creamy. Garnish with shredded coconut or your favorite fruit and ENJOY!

*Medicine Flower extracts can be purchased here  or directly from Medicine Flower.  If you purchase from Medicine Flower, be sure to mention Rawfully Tempting in the shipping comments...and MF will send a Special Bonus Sample with your purchase.

These are Medicine Flower Food Extracts..not flower essences. They are designed for food, but can be used in other projects. I just don't want you to confuse them with Baach Flower Essences...
