Chocolate & Coconut Winter Smoothie
Here we have a YUMMY Choccie & Coconut Smoothie that is very tasty as well as packed full of goodness.
As well as the Healthy Mummy Smoothie ingredients (that you can see here) we have some extra goodness from the shredded coconut plus 1/4 of a banana
You can also warm your milk up before blending so it is more of a Hot Chocolate!
Extra Health Benefits From Coconut & Banana
Shredded coconut primarily consists of medium-chain-fatty-acids which can speed up metabolism because it is easily absorbed by the body and converted into energy.
Bananas are packed with dietary fibre, containing 11% of your recommended daily allowance in one serving. Dietary fibre helps to keep your bowel movements regular, as you cannot digest it and so your body needs to get rid of it.
Dietary fibre is also a great weight loss tool, as it fills you up, but as you cannot digest it, you don’t take in any calories from it.
Bananas also contact a nutrient known as FOS which helps to promote absorption of certain nutrients, such as calcium. Including bananas in your diet could help you to absorb more nutrients from the rest of your food – which has to be a bonus!
Rich in an insoluble carbohydrate known as resistant starch, which is thought to promote fat burning, some people believe that eating a banana for breakfast could help you to take in less calories during the day, boosting your weight loss
- 250ml low fat milk – you could also use Soy Choc 98% fat free milk
- 2 x tbsp Choc Healthy Mummy Smoothie
- 1/4 a Banana
- 2 x tbsp shredded coconut
Blend for 2-3 minutes.
