Coconut milk, despite its high saturated fat content, can help the body burn more energy and lose weight more easily. The unique structure of the MCFAs (medium chain fatty acids) found in coconut milk allow them to be burned more readily for energy, and increases total energy expenditure over the day. Additionally, MCFAs have been shown to be more satiating than longer-chain fats, filling you up better and helping prevent hunger.
8 oz. organic coconut milk, (I like the Native Forest brand, the container is BPA free)
1 tablespoon organic extra virgin coconut oil (I like the Nutiva brand)
2 eggs, organic, free range, and yes, raw!
1/4 cup organic frozen raspberries or other frozen berry
1 frozen organic banana
Optional: 1 tsp- 1 tbsp organic raw honey ( I leave this out but you might prefer it!)
In a high powered blender or Vitamix, blend well until desired consistency is achieved. ENJOY!
