Popeye Shake

August 28, 2009

Here is a recipe for a fantastic shake/smoothie/green creation! It’s super hydrating, loaded with electrolytes, and tastes great. I have been drinking this for the past couple of mornings after my session at the gym or hour and a half power yoga classes.

The Popeye
Water from 1 young coconut (about 1 cup or more)
1-2 cups spinach
1-2 Tbsp coconut oil (or you could use the meat of the inside of the coconut)
1/2-1 cup ice

Blend away in your favorite blender 😉

And here is where this shake is great, you can add anything you want to it to make it your own creation or to match your mood for the day.

Here are some add-in ideas:

The Chocolate Popeye
add to the original
2 Tbsp raw cacao powder
1 Tbsp maca
1 tsp mesquite powder
dash of cayenne for a kick (or ginger for an anti-inflammatory drink)
maybe a date or two

Tropical Popeye
add to the original
1 cup fresh or frozen pineapple or mango
2 Tbsp hemp seeds
juice of 1/2-1 lime

And you, of course, can add anything you to want to create a fantastic variation of this versatile (and YUMMY) drink. Enjoy!
