Glow15: Coconut Vanilla Bean Smoothie


This smoothie reminds me of coconut vanilla ice cream, it is creamy and luscious but unlike ice cream, this smoothie is highly nutritive and filling. Coconut fat contains high quantities of saturated fats, specifically medium chain fatty acids or MCT’s. Not only are MCT’s an efficient form of energy (they bypass normal fatty acid metabolism and immediately get converted to ketones to be used for energy) but they help optimize cholesterol levels, increase how quickly you feel satisfied from a meal, decrease abdominal fat storage, regulate blood sugar and regulate the immune system due to its lauric acid content. Once digested lauric acid metabolizes into something called monolaurin, which eradicates harmful pathogens that cause infections such as bacteria, fungi or viruses.
