My Milkshake.

Let’s talk about my newest obsession as of…well, forever ago. Does that even make sense? Probably not. Oh well. It’s coconut butter. I just think that whoever came up with the idea of pulverizing delicious unsweetened, shredded coconut until it reaches a silky coconut river of happiness has got to be the most genius person alive. Like for reals, yo!
 On a second thought it may have been a coconut hater…well a person who hates coconut for the texture, not taste. If you are like me, you will take coconut in any form. Even a milkshake form. Well, at least I can call this a milkshake even though it is sans actual ice cream. Just go with me on this one. Frozen bananas. They are your life…and your new bff.
Let’s take some of this coconut butter and 
pulverize it with some other good stuff: frozen bananas, cinnamon, vanilla, almond milk, and a touch of honey.
I am telling you…coconut butter is the new peanut butter never! 
More of like the new butter…or maybe the new coconut? Just make it. 🙂
