Digestion Boost Green Smoothie with MCT Oil


Looking for a new smoothie to help you jumpstart your day? This Digestion Boosting Green Smoothie with MCT Oil is the thing to help you out! Drink this yummy smoothie first thing in the morning to help fuel you through a workout and help get things moving (if ya know what I mean).

If you’re new to our friend MCT oil, allow me to give you a quick rundown. MCT stands for “medium-chain triglycerides” which are a form of saturated fatty acid found in coconut oil. They are composed of caprylic and capric fatty acids. Around 62-65% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs (the Nutiva brand of MCT oil that I mention below contains 93% MCTs).  MCTs are easily digested for quick energy.

So MCT oil is basically high quality energy … in a bottle.

Green Smoothie with MCT Oil | SimpleGreenSmoothies.comWe are LOVING Nutiva’s new Organic MCT Oil made from virgin coconut oil. This is the FIRST organic MCT oil out there and I’m so proud of them for venturing into this space. The cleaner the food we consume, the better it is for everyone. We’ve partnered with Nutiva today to bring you this rawesome green smoothie recipe that uses MCT oil. It’s time for you to experience plant powered energy in all it’s glory. Ya ready for this?

This refreshing smoothie is like a juice you’d get at a juice bar…except ours retains all the fiber. (And everyone knows fiber is important for a healthy digestive system.) And that MCT oil, as I mentioned will help give you energy to sustain you making it a great meal replacement smoothie.

    What is the other 7% in this oil? Thanks!

  2. Jen Hansard

    Hey Shari. The other 7% is Lauric Acid (c12), which is often considered a MCT in many brands, yet it’s a longer chain than the other MCTs — Caproic Acid (C6), Caprylic Acid (C8) and Capric Acid (c10).

    Hi Margie, I’m David. I suspect it wold be hard for anyone to answer your question who is not a MD and aware of your health situation. It would probably have liability issues if you took advice and something happened to you. I am not a doctor or certified in any way to give advice on health or nutrition. I do try to eat healthy and learn as much as I can about this topic. For the last three weeks I have been following a Ketogenic diet. During this time I have been researching and studying everything I can about it. My understanding is that the Ketogenic diet can help people to loose weight and recover from certain diseases I believe cardiac diseases is one of them. Do your own research I subscribe to http://www.dietdoctor.com , I am reading a book by Mark Sisson and another by Leanne Vogel and have watched many videos about Keto dieting. Nina Teicholz, Dr. Ken Berry, Dr. Jason Fund, Thomas Delauer, Dr. Sen Ekberg and Dr. Eric Berg. One of these Doctors my answer your question.

    Hey Margie,

    I would make sure to check with your doctor to make sure it is okay with your medication.
