The Mother of all Coconut Smoothies

Smoothies are a great idea in concept, but they can be high in sugar and low in the protein and healthy fat your body needs to start the day. Coconut smoothies are a step in the right direction. Adding the flesh, oil and other products from our beloved coconut provides protein, fiber, fat and big dose of deliciousness. This smoothie recipe is not only low in sugar, it is high in protein, omega-3 acids, heart-healthy medium chain triglycerides and—wait for it—flavor! What’s more, it will keep you feeling satisfied until lunch time. Coconut smoothies make great snacks and are good when you need a quick breakfast on the go. But if you’re going to drink a smoothie as a meal replacement, it should meet the same nutritional requirements as a cooked meal. Fortunately, this “mother of all smoothies” does.
