Happy Blue Coconut Elixir

Happiness in a glass. That's exactly what this is.

And, it's not just because it's blue, creamy, and delicious but because it's got Mucuna Pruriens. It's basically happy powder. This extract powder contains 15% L-DOPA, a precursor to Dopamine. Consuming Mucuna Pruriens may enhance brain function, elevate mood, soothe the nervous system and overall well-being. 

If you are wondering what the difference between coconut milk and coconut cream are, let me explain. The main difference is that coconut milk [in a can] will have the layer of thick coconut cream as well as the watery coconut milk underneath, but coconut cream is only made of that thick, spoonable cream. If I need it for smoothies, I'll leave the coconut milk can in the refrigerator overnight, flip it over and open up. Whats left on top is a thick layer of coconut cream.
