7 Smoothie Recipes Using Coconut Oil ...


Iโ€™m a huge fan of coconut oil and use it for just about everything, including these smoothies recipes using coconut oil. I like to change up which smoothies I eat each day, but each one always has a tablespoon of coconut oil added to it. Coconut oil is great for your hormones, skin, weight loss and metabolism, nails, hair, and regulating your insulin levels. It is also extremely detoxifying to the body, with an emphasis on the liver, which coconut oil helps immensely. Coconut oil contains a special type of fats known as MCT fats, which are immediately used by the body for metabolism functions, not stored as fat. Coconut oil is also an antiviral oil, and rich in lauric acid, so it helps the liver filter out toxins and aids in preventing bacterial infections such as yeast infections and other fungal infections. I have noticed that by using these smoothies recipes using coconut oil, my smoothies not only taste better, give me more energy, and digest better, but they have also made my skin, hair and nails glow. I donโ€™t crave sugar anymore after implementing these smoothie recipes using coconut oil either, which is great for a girl with a major sweet tooth like me. Just 1-2 tbsp. per day of coconut oil is all you need to feel the awesome effects of coconut oil. Try some in one of these smoothies and youโ€™ll see and feel a huge difference!

1. Berry Coconut Smoothie

This smoothie is high in antioxidants and is one of my favorite smoothie recipes using coconut oil. The fats in coconut oil increase nutrient absorption, so all of the vitamins and antioxidants in the berries are used faster and more efficiently in your body. This smoothie also tastes fantastic and is a beautiful pink color.
