Coconut also has powerful antiviral and antibacterial properties. Additionally, coconut contains medium-chain fatty acids, which are sent directly to your liver where they are immediately converted into energy rather than being stored as fat. These medium-chain fatty acids also actually help stimulate your body’s metabolism, leading to weight loss.
Ingredients (Gluten-free, Soy-free, Vegan)
- 2 cups fresh organic pineapple, cubed
- 1 frozen organic banana, cut into pieces
- 1 cup organic coconut milk
- 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
- Ice (optional)
Before my bananas go bad, I cut them up into pieces and freeze them. I then throw them into smoothies, especially if I don’t have ice.
Put all ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth. Add ice as needed.
