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…

  • pineapple

    there are no chunks of coconut oil. it blends very well.

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