Serves: 2


  • ¼ cup Brazil nuts
  • 1 cup young coconut water
  • 2 cups young coconut meat
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup mango, peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 2 tsp. maca powder


  • Grind the Brazil nuts in the coconut water, using an S-blade food processor. (You can also use a high-speed blender, but nuts can destroy a less-powerful conventional blender.) Once smooth, strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove any large particles. Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
