This tropical Coconut Lime Smoothie is healthy, delicious, and fully plant-based. It is also Pegan-diet compliant: you just need to swap the tofu with the vegan protein powder.

In addition, this smoothie is also packed with protein, fibers, and vitamins. Due to its high satiating power, it is also great for weight loss and weight maintenance.

You can easily prep it in less than 5 minutes, and drink it on the go or as a post-workout snack. Being healthy has never been so easy and enjoyable!

Why should we all drink this Coconut Lime Smoothie?

This exotic smoothie contains the optimal balance of all the micro- and macro-nutrients our body needs to thrive!

First, are the proteins from the tofu (or protein powder), which are essential to help repair our muscles after a workout, and to keep us feeling full and satiated. This is particularly important when committing to a weight loss journey.

Second, the healthy fats of the MCT Oil (Medium-Chain Triglyceride Oil) -or unrefined coconut oil. Adding MCT Oil to our morning smoothie is beneficial for many reasons.

Current research shows that MCT oil may be beneficial for weight loss, as it may increase the release of two hormones that can promote the feeling of fullness in the body: peptide YY and leptin.

In addition, MCT oil is easily absorbed and transported throughout the body. Therefore, it is an instant source of energy that is easily converted be converted into ketones, which makes it perfect for everyone following a keto diet.

Finally, the addition of kale in the smoothie helps us to effortlessly reach the daily recommended intake of green leafy veggies, without impacting the smoothie’s taste. This is because my recipe contains the perfect combination of veggies -kale- and fruits -coconut, fresh lime zest and juice, and mint-, that are mixed together to create a very balanced and delicious flavor!
