Lychee Coconut Smoothie Ingredients:
5-7 pieces frozen lychee, pitted (you may use frozen lychee, simple rinse out the syrup it’s usually packed with and then freeze before use)
Half a cup coconut water
Half a cup silken tofu (or use plain yogurt)
1 heaping tablespoon ground flax seed
Shredded coconut for garnish (optional)
Lychee Coconut Smoothie Instructions:
Take out the lychees from the freezer as you are preparing the other ingredients. It helps if the other ingredients are cold as well for a thicker smoothie that you’ll surely enjoy!
Simply place the silken tofu, lychees, coconut water, and flax seed in a blender or blending bullet.
Mix until everything is incorporated.
Pour into a serving glass or drink straight up.
You may enjoy this as a pre-workout smoothie or add half to a full scoop of extra protein powder for a post work-out snack.
