Fruity Coconut Smoothies

by Marise May | September 05, 2014 | 0 Comments

Smoothies are so easy to make, versatile, filling and delicious, all the more so with the creamy goodness of coconut milk. Did you know that good quality coconut milk is naturally high in MCTs? These easy to burn fats are a perfect source of pre-workout energy that won't raise blood sugar the way that carbs do. So go ahead and replace your dairy, soy or other milk with coconut milk for a delicious and nutritious fruity coconut treat. 

 

You will need:

1 can of Cha's Organics Premium Coconut Milk

2 cups of fruit of your choice (frozen or fresh) plus ice if fresh

                   OR

1 medium container of all natural sorbet of your choice (strawberry works pretty awesome for this recipe, mango too)

Juice of 1/2 lime (optional)

1/2 tsp to 1 tsp of Cha's Organics Ground Ginger, True Cinnamon and / or Turmeric depending on your choice of fruit, your mood, or the particular health benefits you seek

Hemp or other protein powder if desired

 

What to do:

  • Using a blender or hand blender, blend all of the ingredients until smooth. If using ice, add this after the other ingredients are evenly blended to avoid having hard chunks of coconut oil form upon contact with the ice. 
  • Adjust all quantities to taste
