How to Make Coconut Oil in Smoothies Taste Good | Mother Rising

Coconut oil has many health benefits, especially for women in the childbearing year. One of the most interesting benefits for new mothers is that coconut oil increases the antimicrobial properties of breastmilk, which is incredible. Even more interesting, is that the body absorbs vitamins and minerals more efficiently when paired with healthy fats like coconut oil. Because of this, it makes sense for pregnant and postpartum women to increase their intake of healthy fats, especially during meals and when taking prenatal vitamins. A delicious way to eat more healthy fats is to use coconut oil in smoothies.

But what’s the best way to make coconut oil in smoothies taste good? Glad you asked. 🙂

Cashew milk is not the only option for the liquid in this coconut oil smoothie. Coconut water, almond milk, cow’s milk, or water could be used as well.

Play around with the amount of coconut oil used. I could see it tasting great even with a little more or less coconut oil.

A Note on Protein Powder During Pregnancy

I don’t advocate pregnant women to consistently use protein powder. As usual, consuming the real thing is always better than the hustle and bustle substitute.

However, protein powder is amazing in a pinch, especially in the first and third trimesters, when things feel really intense. For an amazing read about nutrition and pregnancy, check out this book:
