Ingredients

  • 14 oz. 400 g coconut milk
  • 1 cup 240 ml fresh strawberries
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp lime juice
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Using canned coconut milk (drain off the liquid) makes a creamier, more satisfying smoothie.
  2. Add lime juice to taste.

Tip

Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or any other healthful oil if you want a more filling smoothie. You may also substitute the coconut milk for 1¼ cups Greek yogurt if you prefer a dairy-based smoothie. If so, add a little water for a more liquid consistency. Have fun!

    Is there a listing of the micornutrients for these recipes? I'm looking for Total Carb Count, Fiber Count, Protein Count, Fat Count.

    They all look great and I will be making all of them soon.

    Thanks,

    Hi Vicki!

    We have some of it. :)

    If you hover your mouse over the symbol for "Strict/Moderate/Liberal Low Carb" on the pictures for all our recipes then you will get the nutritional facts.

    The amount of displayed carbs is net carbs (Total amount of carbs - fiber).

    It's not thick enough and definitely not enough taste to it. It's like drinking pink water.

    If you use yogurt (full fat plain) it will be thicker. If it's still not thick enough add Chia seeds. The carb count will change a bit.

    Hi Darlene!

    Heavy cream should be fine... (but it's still liberal low carb, I would be a bit careful with it if your goal is weight-loss.)

    What about full fat milk?

    Hi Bianca!

    If you look at the carb content, full fat milk and coconut milk have about the same so from that perspective it should be OK. But this is liberal low carb and look att the serving size, one serving is quite small. So if you are going for weight-loss don't drink to much of it...

    What about full fat milk?

    Do we use the coconut milk from a can or carton?

    Usually when it comes to low carb, it's talking about from the can. The one from the carton doesn't really have fat in it.

    Used heavy whipping cream instead of coconut milk. Smoother, thicker and creamier plus less carbs.

    Use frozen strawberries, or add a cup to a cup-and-a-half of ice to make it more like a smoothie!
