Hi everyone, hope you are well! Today is day 10 being fully raw *woop*! This morning I made this absolutely delicious coconut banana smoothie which tasted like heaven! Something I love about Dubai are the wide variety of fruits and vegetables available (especially at the farmer’s markets).
I picked up some young coconuts the other day (costs equivalent to $2.50) and decided to use both the water and flesh in a smoothie. I had placed some bananas in the freezer last night so decided to use those too. And then I added some cinnamon and dates to give a really nice flavor! It turned out delicious ♥ You can also use coconut meat to make raw yoghurts and puddings – yum!
Place all ingredients into a high-speed blender, and voila!
(You can also put this back into the fridge / freezer to make it even cooler)
As mentioned in the video, eating fully raw was always something I wanted to do – but honestly, the thought of it scared me a little. I’d think things like “will I get enough variety?” / “will I get bored of eating the same food?” “will I be hungry?” but in reality, it’s SO much easier than I expected and I haven’t had any trouble getting varieties of foods into my diet, and I definitely haven’t gotten “bored” of the food. In fact, I’ve found a whole new excitement and love for fruits & veg – as crazy as that may sound 🙂 Anyway my point is, there are just so many varieties on a raw food diet! And to anyone who is thinking about starting this lifestyle, and may have doubts, just TRY it! Go for maybe 3 days eating raw and do research, find recipes and I’m sure you will love it too! ♥
