Yogurt Smoothie

This yogurt smoothie is our go-to breakfast. It has a low glycemic load, so it does not cause a spike in blood sugar. Also, the fats from the yogurt, coconut oil and nut butter provide a steady, slow-burning source of fuel for our bodies and a wonderful sense of satiation!

What you need:
 3/4 cup full fat yogurt (100% grass fed)
 2 Tbs. (or more) coconut oil or coconut manna
 2 Tbs. peanut butter or almond butter or a handful of sprouted pumpkin or sunflower seeds
 1/2 cup frozen berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries)
 Toasted coconut flakes
 *makes 1 smoothie 

 Vitamix or heavy duty blender

What you do:
 Toast coconut flakes in toaster oven until lightly browned, then place in freezer for awhile
 Blend all other ingredients in Vitamix
 Pour into glass and top with toasted coconut
 Enjoy and add more toasted coconut as you drink!
