I discovered how much I love Salmonberries on an exciting trip to Alaska. The native Inuit people make this delicious treat with them called, akutuq, which is like berry ice cream. It’s fantastically decadent yet brimming with nutrition (unlike traditional sugary ice cream!).
If you’re lucky enough to live on the West coast you can enjoy these Vitamin C rich brilliant orange-red gems too! If you live in other parts of the country, simply enjoy this “ice cream” smoothie with the closely related raspberry. The berries blend well with the smooth richness of coconut milk and polyphenol-rich mint. Baobab is a slightly citrus-sweet antioxidant fruit that will add a touch of natural sweetness. Don’t let the opportunity pass to add a dash of omega 3 oil: an efficient way to maximize your family’s intake of vitamins A, D, and omega-3 fatty acids or a scoop of your favorite collagen for beautiful skin 🙂
Salmonberry Coconut Smoothie with Collagen

1/4 cup coconut butter
1/2 cup chopped mint leaves, about 30 large leaves
