looks delicious, I think I'll try it. :) I love smoothies, and the berries just make it all the better. I might even substitute the milk for yogurt. :)

I love using the coconut oil in smoothies. It gives it such a good flavor. I have not tried melting the oil before adding it to the mixture. Does this help it to mix more thoroughly?

Just wanted to say I saw this recipe on Facebook and it looked so delicious it inspired me to get up and make a smoothy. I didn't have any berries, so I used mango plus mango orange juice instead. I used coconut milk and added some protein powder instead of nuts. It's delicious. Thanks for the inspiration.

Susan: Melting the oil and adding it in a small stream to the smoothie while it is still blending helps it to mix thoroughly without forming clumps.

Dakotah: Great! It does sound delicious.

I make this smoothie every morning...except I use kefir, or half kefir and half coconut milk. I do not put nuts or coconut in, although sometimes I add coconut cream (mainly in the summer when it is soft and spoonable). Also wonderful is kefir, coconut milk, fresh pineappke, an orange (or a big dollop of frozen orange juice) and some stevia!

Sometimes I make a smoothie in the morning to have for breakfast and this looks scrumptious! I will probably leave out the nuts and flax seed, and dried coconut but I'm sure it will be delicious! Thanks for the recipe, Jean!
