Put the Lime in the Coconut Smoothie

I have been a little obsessed with making my smoothies and meals look a little more scrumptious.  I was not being visually stimulated enough by my smoothies any longer.

I was loving this tangy yet sweet concoction this morning.  Yummm

Onwards an upwards to the next level smoothies, overflowing with yum and goodness.

Oh, and let me assure you, this is not complicated, in fact it is easy.  All you have to do is get a little creative, a little messy and throw in a dash of whatever you have lying around!

Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.  

Drink as is or make it a little fun and heartier and add some other toppings!

To layer as somewhat of a smoothie parfait as pictured, pour a little smoothie into your glass or jar,  add sliced kiwi around the edges, throw a little puffed quinoa in there and fill up the rest with smoothie.

Sprinkle a bit of unsweetened coconut on top along with some quinoa puffs and berries, grab a spoon and dig in!
