Coconut Berry Puree
Yields 4 – 1/2 cup Portions: 1 carbohydrate, 1 fat, 0 protein servings per portion
This antioxidant rich puree is a very refreshing snack. It also freezes well and can be used as a gluten and dairy-free alternative to ice-cream or used to make home-made popsicles.
|1C||1 cup fresh strawberries|
|1C||1 cup fresh blueberries|
|1C||1 cup fresh raspberries|
|1C||1 tablespoon maple syrup (100% maple)|
|4F||1/2 cup whole coconut milk|
In a food processor or blender, mix all ingredients and blend well. Chill before serving.
Enjoy as a topping, a dip, a frozen treat, or a smoothie.
To boast the nutrient density of this puree even higher – add fresh spinach or kale (baby kale has the most tender and mild leaf). We tested adding up to 8 cups of fresh spinach and couldn’t believe how great, and sweet, it still tasted! An absolutely incredible way to increase leafy green intake.
A scoop of plain, organic whey can be added to increase protein. 1 heaping tablespoon adds ~7 grams of protein.
