  2. Add the coconut oil, coconut milk, cocoa powder, agave nectar and almond milk to the blender and puree until thick and smooth, about 2 minutes.

Chef Tips

Don’t use drinking chocolate to make this drink – it won’t taste good. It has too little cocoa and too much sugar.

If your blender is not very powerful, as you grind the flax seeds add ¼ cup of the almond milk. This will help them turn into a fine puree so that your smoothie is smooth and not gritty.

To melt coconut oil: Stand the jar in a bowl of hot water until enough has turned liquid for the recipe.

Last but not least: don’t get too addicted to this drink. Once treatment is over, and your weight has stabilized, it will pack on unwanted pounds if you have too much too often.
