Low Carb Coconut Milk Green Smoothie

Coconut Milk Green Smoothie

Vegan, Low Carb, Gluten free

After a lot of struggle for trying to stay low carb with the easily available ingredients, I have finally prepared my green smoothie which is just perfect for breakfast as well as evening snack.

After doing Non Vegetarian version of Low carb diet I finally got sick of meats so thought of making vegetarian work for me. This is when I realized that I have homemade frozen coconut milk in freezer… Oh!let me share a secret here, I love to preserve food items. I do it in the form of pickles and frozen.

Some time back I had written a post on how to preserve fresh vegetables… Read here. I love to keep my freezer loaded with green purees, shelled peas, frozen bananas and now the latest craze is to make coconut milk at home and freeze in ice trays for future use.frozen coconut milk cubes

So what I had done, that when I got some real cheap fresh coconuts, I just…

  • grated them
  • blended well with warm water in mixer grinder
  • squeezed well the pulp
  • and froze coconut milk in ice trays in the freezer.
  • Once frozen I just stored the cubes in a ziplock bag in the freezer.

If you are a vegan, or on a low carb diet then these coconut milk cubes are going to be a manna from heaven for you.

Now coming back to my green smoothie…..

As it’s pretty clear in the picture that I used….

  • 50 gm fresh spinach,
  • 6 almonds
  • 2 tsp Methi sprouts
  • 100 gm cucumber pieces
  • 5 small frozen coconut milk cubes

Just blend everything with some water, salt and black pepper. When you pour the smoothie in tumbler add a dash of lemon juice. On top sprinkle a tsp of chia or flax seeds (I used Chia seeds)

This whole recipe is less than 200 calorie with around 4 Net carbs…Just have a boiled egg and you will be good to go for the day. Perfect breakfast.
