Ever want a smoothie, but don’t want one packed with sugar that will leave you hungry in half an hour? For a filling snack or meal without the insulin spike, consider this delicious coconut-based smoothie that is similar in taste and texture to a milkshake, but much more satisfying. It is even a fast on-the-go breakfast, and kids love it!
The protein in this smoothie comes from the gelatin powder and egg yolks, while the coconut milk and coconut oil provide beneficial fats. If you are not comfortable consuming raw egg yolks or don’t have a trusted source, you can absolutely leave these out. If you are new to gelatin, I’d recommend starting with only a teaspoon or so a day and working up, as some people notice temporary digestive troubles from taking too much at once.
The banana is optional, or it can be replaced with strawberries or any other fruit.
