Since I'm not a coffee drinker, and don't know much about coffee, I figured I'd ask if it's safe, as nutritious, and ok to toss in 10 whole coffee beans into my vitamix smoothie?
I am curious if whole coffee beans are like garlic in that it needs to interact with oxygen after crushing to activate all the antioxidants or beneficial compounds?
In case anyone's interested, here's my recipe which makes two 12oz servings:
10oz whole milk
3oz heavy cream
1oz almonds (blanched)
6oz frozen strawberry
10 whole coffee beans
1oz rice syrup (or other sweetener).
Each 12oz servings contains: 433 calories, 29g fat (14g saturated), 36g carbs (26 as sugars), 10g protein.
It is a drinkable consistency. Add 1 or 2 cups of ice if you want to make it a frozen treat.
