June Smoothie Inspiration: Jacques Cousteau

by Mikuna Foods
“I was playing when I invented the Aqua-Lung. I think play is the most serious thing in the world.” — JC

Jacques Cousteau opened a whole new underwater world to future generations when, in 1943, he and Émile Gagnon invented the first effective self-contained underwater breathing apparatus, the Aqua-Lung. Documenting his scuba diving expeditions through books and films, he educated the public about ocean life and conservation, providing vivid thrills along the way.

Imagine having that kind of impact! And all because he allowed himself to play with new ideas.

Which brings us to our June recipe…After experimenting with various ingredients, this smoothie ultimately came out just as we had hoped—a drinkable ocean, if you will, filled with protein, vitamins and minerals, and showcasing fruits found along the many coasts where Jacques Cousteau loved to dive.

June Smoothie, Inspired by Jacques Cousteau

¼ cup of Mikuna Vanilla Chocho
½ of a Key lime squeezed (a normal lime will suffice)
½ cup of coconut meat diced
1 cup of coconut milk
1 scoop of Irish sea moss
½ drop of chlorophyll*
1 scoop of blue spirulina or butterfly pea tea powder (choose the latter if Spirulina has too strong of an earthy taste for you)
½ of a guava (you can put the whole half in there or scoop out the pink guava flesh)
1 tsp. of Organic Agave Nectar
A handful of large Ice Cubes
  • Top with whipped coconut cream
  • Sprinkle with coconut flakes
  • Garnish with a Swedish Fish
  • Have some fun!
*We recommend using no more than half a drop, and don’t be alarmed if you see shades of blue or green in your bathroom the next morning. 😉
