We ordered the raw vegan Kookies & Kream Smoothie at the Go Raw Cafe www.GoRawCafe.com In Las Vegas and I thought that based on the ingredients it would be easy for me to make at home. So I played with different combinations of ingredients, and I have simplifed it to avoid having to "milk" almond milk while maintaining it's heavenly taste for both children and adults. Cookies & Cream Smoothie is low cost, fast and easy to make, raw and vegan recipe! If you love young coconuts, this smoothie will be on top of your favorites list!
Note: If you do not know how to open young coconut watch my Raw Vegan Pina Colada Ice Cream/Sorbet video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmvmibQKyzo
3-4 frozen bananas, peel bananas before freezing2 young Thai coconut - meat only from 1 coconut (1/2 cup meat) and water from 2 coconuts (2 cups water)1 Tbsp cacao nibs1/2-1 tsp vanilla powder or vanilla extract (optional)
Blend all ingredients, except the cocao nibs in a high speed blender (e.g. Vitamix) until smooth. Then add cacao nibs and pulse the Vitamix for a few seconds. For small children you may want to consider blending longer to avoid choking on nibs.
