A Coconut milk smoothie has lots of really good-for-you properties. Not to mention, the milk makes smoothies taste tropical and creamy- and who doesn’t love that?
You don’t need a lot of coconut milk to make your fruit smoothies creamier and coco-nutty. I generally like to use at least a half cup of coconut milk.
There are different versions available in the supermarket: Low fat and regular. The low fat version of coconut milk is significantly waterier, but also much lower fat. While the regular version is higher in fat, it’s decadent and better tasting. Don’t forget though, the fat in coconut is not the kind that adds cellulite, it’s part of the good fat group of fats.
If you have fresh coconut on hand and would like to make your own for your coconut milk smoothie, blend a few peices of the meat with the juice, or replace the coconut milk in these recipes with fresh coconut juice.
Note: If you need more water to make the smoothie more liquid for your blender or your taste, feel free to add more milk to the recipe, it won't change the taste.
P.S.- If you're ever in a pinch and can't think of a recipe but want to use coco milk, no problem, just use bananas. If you make a banana smoothie with coco milk it's always a favorite!
