Coconut Oil Low Carb Smoothie Recipe

11

Ingredients



  • 1 small banana
  • other fruit (preferably fresh if available): 2-3 strawberries, peach slices, blueberries, etc.
  • 6 to 8 ounces of fruit juice (orange, pineapple, grape, or whatever suits your palate)
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of coconut oil (solid)
  • 1 scoop whey protein

Preparation

Blend the above ingredients with the immersion blender until they are smooth. If the drink is too thick for your taste, add a little more juice. Clean up is a quick rinse and blending of a drop or two of dish soap in some hot water and a thorough rinse.

    You’d end up with chunks of coconut oil in your smoothie… ick!

    look up the benefits of coconut oil. its a saturated fat, but a very healthy one. Also, the coco oil binds all the ingredients and makes for a smoother consistency, you don’t taste or feel it…

    Yeah.. this has at least 50 carbs, not too much lower carb when compared to other smoothies.

    Good carbs? Do you know anything? Fructose is sugar, what are you even talking about?
