MCT (Medium-Length Chains) oil is a supplement often added to smoothies, bulletproof coffee, and salad dressings. As the name suggests, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil contains medium-length chains of fats called triglycerides. Due to their shorter length, MCTs are easily digested and many health benefits are linked to the way your body processes these fats.
I have been adding MCT Oil to my Power Coffee, smoothies and salad dressings. I really like it – it is super slippery, doesn’t have a strong coconut scent and overall I like it.
MCT oil is most commonly extracted from coconut oil, as more than 50% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs. These fats are also found in many other foods, such as palm oil and dairy products.
MCT oil has been shown to increase the release of two hormones that promote the feeling of fullness in the body: peptide YY and leptin. For this reason they are beneficial in weight loss.
MCT oil can help optimize the growth of good bacteria and support the gut lining, which could also help you lose weight.
I have been drinking the “Fuel Pull” All day sipper drink (they are very slimming) I found on the THM website and LOVE it! It tastes AMAZING!
What is great about this recipe is that it is packed with nutrition, energy, protein, fiber & is low carb friendly. It can also be low fat friendly.
Add a full Tablespoon of Coconut Oil to give you the energy to make it through your whole morning.
I like to throw in a handful of frozen Spinach or Kale and a few pieces of frozen Okra.
Adding the extra vegetables, the smoothie still tastes great while at the same time giving you some fiber to detox the body a bit.
Here is the recipe to share today:
Place the gelatin in a 1-cup measuring cup. Add the cool water and stir until dissolved, then add the boiled water and stir. Fill the measuring cup with enough cool water to come to 1 cup and place in the blender. Now fill the measuring cup with 1 more cup cold water and add to the blender. Blend for a few seconds.
Add all the remaining ingredients and blend on high until all is creamy and the peppers are completely broken down. Pour this concentrate into a quart jar. Fill to the top with ice, add water only if needed to reach the top, and stir well. Taste and adjust the flavors to “own it” and sip your health into renewal.
