Smoothies during the summer are possibly the best thing ever invented, especially when living in the Georgia. I’ve put together a few different recipes that I love for smoothie flavors that are perfect for the way I eat! It is important for me to still focus on the high fat aspect of all my food, especially in my smoothies. The focus for me here is to find a combination that tastes great and is good for me!

I rarely ever eat fruit mainly because I personally try to eat as low sugar as possible (glucose, sucrose, OR fructose) because I find that works best for me. BUT if I am to eat fruit, it is in these smoothies. These smoothies do include more sugar than I would normally eat throughout the day, so it’s safe to say this smoothie is considered a treat and probably isn’t something I consume eat every day.

A lot of bottled smoothies/juices you find at the store or the smoothies/shakes that your gym makes for you after a workout are typically filled with a lot of sugar whether it is table sugar in the products they use or the high sugar fruits like bananas and mangoes. These are dangerous because they taste so good, almost like milkshakes, but they are full of sugar. I love my smoothies because they are almost completely sugar-free!  

Saturated Fit Smoothies:

  • 1-2 TBSP MCT oil or Liquid Coconut Oil
  • 3-4 medium strawberries

  • handful of ice
  • Optional sprinkle of coconut shavings on top!

  • 6 oz of unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1-2 TBSP Liquid Coconut Oil or MCT oil
  • 2-3 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • Handful of blueberries
  • Handful of ice
  • Optional sprinkle of coconut shavings on top!

 

Mixed Berry:

  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup blackberries
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1-2 TBSP Liquid Coconut Oil or MCT oil
  • 2-3 TBSP heavy whipping cream
  • 6 oz of water or unsweetened coconut milk
  • Handful of ice

And for all you juicers out there…

Kale-berry:

  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup shredded kale
  • 1-2 TBSP MCT oil or Liquid Coconut oil
  • packet of stevia
  • 6 oz of unsweetened coconut milk
  • handful of ice

 

I suggest drinking only one of these smoothies per week. Fruit still has sugar and remember that fructose (fruit sugar) reacts the exact same way as glucose (table sugar) in your body. The body does not discriminate when it comes to sugar molecules. Too much fructose translates directly into body fat.

Enjoy!
