So, for those looking to keep the good times and good vibes going all year, we’re presenting a coconut-lime smoothie created by Sepsenahki Aahkhu (aka, “Chef Ahki”). Smooth, cool, refreshing, and packed full of antioxidants and nutrients, this beverage is a great way to start your day … even after you’ve dusted off your favorite fall coat.

Editor's note: Chef Ahki will be at Vegetarian Vision at the Penn Plaza Pavilion in New York Saturday and Sunday showcasing this recipe (and more).
