Strawberry-Lemonade-Cultured Coconut Milk Smoothie

Sometimes I am not in the mood to cook dinner. One of my favorite cook-free meals is made in my blender. There is great probiotic in the cultured coconut milk.
Another great benefit is if you're Jonesing for a FroYo, this is a great alternative.
Cultured Coconut Milk is a yogurt type food. Here are some interesting facts about coconut(referenced from So Delicious Dairy Free web site)

Cultured Coconut Milk

  • Coconut consuming cultures around the world have lower incidence of heart disease than Americans.1
  • Lauric acid exists abundantly in coconut and plays a fundamental role in building our body’s immune system. Once in our system it transforms into an antibacterial and antiviral substance called "monolaurin" which destroys viruses and diseases.2
  • Lauric acid also occurs naturally in human breast milk and plays a vital role in nourishing and protecting babies from infections.3
  • MCFAs promote weight maintenance without raising cholesterol levels. They work best for preventing weight gain if you’re not overweight or maintaining your new weight after a successful diet.4

Strawberry-Lemonade-Cultured Coconut Milk Smoothie

Put everything in the blender. Blend until smooth. You might need to add more lemonade to blend.
