Try this nutrient-packed Pineapple Kale Coconut Oil Green Smoothie. Coconut oil has some amazing health benefits such as increasing metabolism and endurance— which is great if you workout or are running after little ones all day.
I finally decided to add coconut oil to my green smoothies…it’s delicious. Coconut oil is also a healthy fat which is filled with heart healthy goodness. Some people take a tablespoon a day to help with weight loss.
According to Dr. Oz, “Coconut oil improves calcium and magnesium absorption in the body, which in turn is greatly beneficial to dental and bone health. The improved calcium absorption created by coconut oil use ceases tooth decay and aids in the development of strong teeth.” So I think I’ll explore making a homemade coconut oil toothpaste next.
Trader Joe’s has an organic extra virgin coconut oil jar for $5.99 in California– that’s where I get mine, but you can also buy on Amazon too.
In this smoothie sometimes I add a little broccoli, which makes it a tasty health monster powerhouse (your kids will love it too)! If you have leftovers, feel free to pour your extra smoothie into popsicle molds for a healthy treat. So are you ready to try this nutrient-packed green smoothie with fresh cut pineapple, kale, coconut oil?
