Low Carb Very Berry Coconutty Smoothie

Recipe: Low Carb Very Berry Coconutty Smoothie

Smoothies are a quick, easy way to make a tasty low carb drink. Depending on my schedule, I sometimes use them as a quick meal replacer. With the weather finally starting to warm up, I find myself making them more often. One of my recent favorites uses a coconut milk base. Along with the great taste, coconut milk contains Lauric Acid, which is a proven antiviral and antibacterial agent. The great berry flavor comes from frozen strawberries and some raspberry sugar-free syrup.Very Berry Coconutty Smoothie
1 can coconut milk
6 large frozen strawberries
6 ice cubes
2 Tbsp Da Vinci Raspberry Syrup*
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Optional: Scoop of whey protein

Place all ingredients in to a blender and liquify. Pour in to an insulated mug and enjoy.

The entire pitcher contains approximately 16 grams of carbs…closer to 19 if you add the protein powder. While this recipe is not for those on Atkins induction, it is just fine for maintenance or Barry Groves fans. (His plan allows up to 60g of carbs per day.)

* If not available, use whatever sugar replacer you prefer. 2 packets of Splenda and 2 packets of Equal works well.
