This Bounty Smoothie recipe includes coconut chunks, banana, medjool dates, cacao and flaxseed. Blend these ingredients up with coconut milk and you have a thick and creamy smoothie that tastes just like a Bounty chocolate bar.
Bounty Smoothie Ingredients
Coconut Chunks: I use the Creative Gourmet Frozen Coconut Chunks for this smoothie. However, you could also use dessicated coconut or even fresh coconut.
Medjool Dates: This particular variety of date adds a sweet and subtle caramel-like taste to this smoothie. As an added bonus, they are also rich in fibre, antioxidants and potassium. They are larger in size compared with other varieties of dates, so I recommend chopping them into smaller pieces so they blend easier.
Coconut Milk: Any plant-based milk will work but I recommend Pure Harvest Coco Quench coconut milk. It’s organic and made from a blend of coconut milk and brown rice.
Cacao: I use the Power Super Foods cacao. These are certified organic and are sourced from smallholder organic farms.
Protein Powder: The ground flaxseed in this smoothie add some extra plant-based protein and healthy fats. You could also add a vegan protein powder to this smoothie to make it a bit more hearty (particularly if you’re consuming this as a meal or post-workout). I use a flavourless protein powder from Amazonia in my smoothies for a little extra protein.
If you don’t have a lot of time during the week, this smoothie is super simple to create for breakfast or a snack. If you’re more into meal prepping on the weekend, you could make a batch and freeze it into smoothie cubes. This makes it even easier to whip up during the week.
