You will need:

1 c Coconut Milk {coconut is good for weight loss, promotes a healthy immune system, helps prevent heart disease, and gives you healthy skin and hair}

1 Tbs Coconut oil

1 Tbs Maca Powder {cholesterol reducer, helps with fatigue, and also helps with PMS symptoms}

1 Tbs Ground flax seed {high in fiber and omega-3’s}

1 tsp Vanilla extract

1/4 tsp Almond extract

1/4 tsp Cinnamon {regulates blood sugar, arthritis relief, brain booster}

Honey {To taste. I like to use local honey to help with my allergies.)

Ice Cubes

If you can’t find the maca powder, or don’t want to use it, it’s okay to omit. It has a nice nutty flavor and gives you a little energy boost, so I’d definitely recommend it. I bought a bag in the health food section of the grocery store that will last me forever. You could also try ordering on Amazon.

If you’re flax seed is already ground, toss all ingredients except for the ice into your blender. If you have something like a Magic Bullet, this is a great recipe for those smaller blenders. Blend all ingredients together, and then add the ice {if you try to put the ice in initially, it will cause the coconut oil to clump}.

And that’s it! It’s a delicious treat, especially in the spring or winter months.
