Coconut milk is quite an underrated product. It is known mainly as an element of exotic Thai cuisine and some diets that imply the abandonment of one or another food of animal origin. It’s very cool that nowadays it’s accessible to those who don’t live in the tropics. In this case, coconut milk is an alternative to the usual cow or goat’s milk, cream or sour cream. Coconut milk smoothies for weight loss is a perfect combination!

However, a delicate creamy drink with a light sweet-ish taste has much more useful properties than just the ability to substitute dairy products. That’s why it’s so popular among vegans. The milk is not the water that’s inside a whole shredded coconut. This liquid is called coconut water, consists of almost 95% of the actual water and contains virtually no fat or other nutrients. Milk, on the other hand, is a mixture of pulp and water that has been thoroughly processed to a homogeneous mass. It results in a high-calorie product with a high content of polyunsaturated chain fatty acid, vitamins and trace elements.
