This recipe works magic on a sensitive tummy! The Elixir of Life is really not my recipe, I lovingly borrowed this from my guy, with a few tweaks to make it GFYC approved. He is Puerto Rican and I love that the ingredients he uses are all local to PR.
2 cups cold coconut water
½ medium papaya
1 frozen banana
2 tablespoons bee pollen (optional)
*When shopping for ingredients, look for local and organic options.
Pour coconut water into a Vitamix or other high-powered blender. Peel and deseed the papaya. Cut the papaya and banana into 1-2 inch chunks and add to the blender. Secure lid onto blender and blend on high until smooth. Pour elixir into two, 16 oz glasses and top each with 1 tablespoon of bee pollen (optional). For optimal enjoyment, drink one and share one!
