WHOA super charged smoothie goodness!!

there's lots of opinions out there on what is good for you and what isn't, and some things are so yum and you love them so much that no matter what anyone says, you find your own truth. and here's my sooooooper smoothie....

enough for 2-3 good sized delicious helpings
the ingredient variations will depend on your taste (and buzz level you want to achieve)

the great thing about this smoothie other than the taste is that the buzz you get is nicely leveled out by the other ingredients (i myself am a bit sensitive and i enjoy this without the after shakes)

1 young coconut - both water and scrape the coconut flesh out of the shell
2-4 bananas - i like mine frozen to give it a wee chill
2-6 teaspoons raw cacao powder
2-4 shots espresso coffee
1-3 tablespoons local honey

and.... ENJOY

my housemate wade will be very happy to find the other half of this after his swim this morning. like all good things, they are sooooo much better when shared!
