Coconut Oil Green Smoothie Recipe

Coconut Oil Smoothie Recipe

This healthy coconut oil smoothie recipe is full of nutrients, tastes great and gives me an energy boost every time!

I first made this delicious elixir when I added this extra virgin, organic coconut oilto my favorite green smoothie. Amazingly, it made something I already loved taste even better. I also noticed within about 30 minutes how energized I felt. Since I was starting a new dance class that week, I made a mental note that I would have another one the evening of class before I left. When class-time came, it definitely did the job!

Coconut Oil Smoothie Benefits

By the way, this is a pretty filling smoothie recipe. Why is that? You might think it’s the volume and all the fiber, and you’re right, but it’s the coconut oil that makes it stay filling. Having a little fat in your food gives your body the feeling of being sated, so you won’t already be hungry again in an hour. Coconut oil is especially good for this since it makes you digest food more slowly. (See the excellent book Eat Fat, Lose Fat for more on this). Plus, coconut oil is quickly turned to energy, giving you and your metabolism a boost and aiding easy weight loss.

Ingredients

  1. ½ an apple
  2. ½ cup of fr. vanilla yogurt
  3. 2 big handfuls of spinach
  4. 1 well-ripened banana
  5. 2 handfuls of frozen blueberries or strawberries
  6. 1 ½ tbsp unrefined, virgin coconut oil
  7. (optional) a scoop of protein powder

Directions

Chop half of an apple and put in the blender. Pour yogurt on top and blend quickly just to get the apple pieces down some. Then add in your coconut oil — it’s easier if you’ve melted it first but if not, that’s fine too. It’ll blend throughout. Give a brief whir in the blender, then start adding your protein powder, spinach, banana in pieces, and blueberries on top. Blend until smooth and enjoy you green coconut oil smoothie!

Customize it

Athletes or those who don’t eat dairy may want to skip the yogurt, and that’s perfectly fine. Use water, coconut milk, or kefir if you like those. Protein powder can also be thrown in if you want. But that’s how I am; I just put things in the blender and improvise based on the time of day and what I need then. Coconut cream would probably also be amazing in place of coconut oil in the smoothie. Just remember that coconut cream is not “cream of coconut”, a canned sugary substance used in mixed drinks like pina coladas. (See: Coconut Oil vs. Coconut Milk, Water, Cream & Butter)

Let me add that I find this coconut oil smoothie comes out better depending on the ripeness of the banana and getting the amount of yogurt just right for the consistency. Enjoy your tasty green coconut oil smoothie!
