blackberry coconut smoothie - Day 25 of my 30 day challenge - www.scalingbackblog.com

This is a variation on a smoothie I posted a long time ago.  I like putting a little toasted coconut into my smoothies, it gives them a nice nutty flavor that I really enjoy.  I don’t usually go for milk based smoothies but I’ve been making more of them lately.  I add some chia seeds for a little extra protein and it keeps my hunger at bay longer.
