Sunrise Shake

2 06 2010
In the summertime, we love to make lots of healthy smoothies. My 15-year old son has mastered the art of cracking open a fresh coconut. One word of warning: don’t use a really good knife because it may get chipped a bit. I use a cleaver style knife. You can find some videos on youtube for how to open a fresh coconut. I like this video. She does a great job explaining about the young coconut.
This shake has a great tropical taste and is super healthy for you.  Coconut water and coconut meat are used in a lot of raw cooking so it is worth taking the time to master that art of coconut opening.

2 mangoes

Water from 1 young coconut

Meat from 1 young coconut

1 banana, preferably frozen

Ice cubes

Blend all the ingredients together. Serve.
