Servings: 2
Preparation Time: 5-7 minutes

Blend all ingredients in blender on high. Will have small “chunks” of coconut cream concentrate – to eliminate those and make it perfectly smooth, first heat the Coconut Cream Concentrate and then add it in its melted state to the smoothie, as it’s finishing blending.

Garnish with additional frozen raspberries.
