Loco for Coco
It's no wonder more and more fit-minded people are using coconut oil, flakes, and flour in their recipes—the fruit has endless benefits! Some people might skip it because of the high fat (and saturated fat, to boot) content. For the active person, the fat and fiber from coconut works in many beneficial ways.
Incorporating coconut in our diets can help boost metabolism and thyroid function while increasing energy, endurance, and digestion. I love to add coconut to my recipes. Check out these shakes, treats, and bars below for great ideas on how to go loco for coco!
1 / Coconut Greens Shake
This refreshing take on a greens shake has a velvety-smooth consistency thanks to the coconut oil. It's great for a pre- or post-workout meal!
