Very Coconut Smoothie

Coconut Smoothie

This coconut smoothie is really simple to make and super-nutritious. The base of the smoothie is coconut milk (from the can). In addition to providing lots of really healthy fats, coconut milk has natural antifungal properties and can help to maintain healthy gut flora.

This tasty smoothie also provides you with a hit of protein, healthy fats, antioxidants, and omega 3s from the addition of almond butter and chia seeds. Coconut extract as well as coconut flakes give this smoothie that extra coconut flavor boost. Great for breakfast or as a satisfying snack between meals!

Be aware that this is a high calorie snack that might not be suitable for everyone. The Candida diet is not designed to be a weight loss diet, although many people end up losing weight as they improve their diet! If you’re on the Candida diet and still need to lose a few pounds, this smoothie might not be for you.

    What is the calorie content of this smoothie?

  2. Paulette Sfetku says:

    what about the following recipe for candida types?

    1/2 banana
    handful walnuts or almonds
    12 tablespoons raw cacoa powder (organic)
    water (filtered)
    Blend and drink.

    1. D.Nagle says:

      bananas aren’t allowed on the diet.

      1. Cynthia says:

        Neither is chocolate. Too bad because it sounds yummy!

      2. Chris says:

        I had cadida for two years before I finally saw a homeopathic Doctor
        I was very week,got up at 8am and back to bed at 9:30
        Very time I ate, my stomach felt like every thing was was boiling back to the top
        I drank cannabis leafs freshly picked tea that I boiled for 20 minutes
        One table spoon or a mouth full 3 time a day’s.
        This strengthen my system and got me out of bed
        Even during the diet I don’t have the system breakdowns
        How does this help

    2. Sheila Caviness says:

      There’s 2 ingredients not allowed on the diet. You have to read the foods to avoid and eat. Best of luck!

    3. DB says:

      12tbsps of raw cacoa is excessive and I wouldn’t recommend it even if you weren’t following the candida diet. In fact I read that it can be dangerous in large amounts.

      1. Moka says:

        LOL, I bet that should be 1 – 2 tbs!

  3. 5 stars
    This is excellent! The perfect between-meal snack.

  4. Laurie stern says:

    Hi my name is Laurie I have candida it’s very painful I now have it under control with diet. Your information I have read was so helpful for me. I would like to say thank you I hope outher people can benefit by it thank you again Laurie ?

  5. Michelle says:

    It looks delicious, but I just figured the calorie count and it’s 850 calories! Using high fat canned coconut milk and almond butter really adds up.

  6. Helen Alford says:

    But if you are on this diet perhaps a healthy and high calorie snack will be good to keep you going. We need healthy calories else we get weak.

  7. Jackie says:

    The almond butter I have has cane sugar in it. 3g of sugar in a serving. Better double check it before u make this.

  8. Kathleen Ruby says:

    I bought the book and recipes. I have a high sensitivity to buckwheat flour. Can you suggest a substitute for your recipes that call for buckwheat?

    1. Lisa Richards says:

      Yes you can try flours like almond flour or coconut flour

    This smoothie is the best! As a dessert or a snack – I froze unsweetened original almond milk in place of the coconut milk to give it a different flavour, and added unsweetened coconut flakes for texture, my gosh, I am hooked.

    Excellent! Can you tell me where you can find the alcohol free coconut extract?? I used vanilla instead and added a TBSP of MCT coconut oil. I didn’t add any sweetener. Very filling and kept me full for hours! I can use some extra weight and this sounds like a daily meal!

  11. Sarah says:

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! This was delicious! I could not find coconut extract so I used vanilla extract. This is a great recipe for when I want a filling drink/dessert.

  12. Je says:

    5 stars
    Can you substitute the coconut extract for vanilla extract. I have any coconut extract in my kitchen .

  13. Brianna says:

    Just wondering, how often per week is ok to consume as I’ve read that drinking a cup of canned coconut milk raises your fat and cholesterol levels to more than 50% of your daily requirement.
