If you loved milkshakes as a kid, then you’re going to love this coconut banana shake. It’s loaded with natural feel-good nutrients like B vitamins which recharge the nervous system and drastically improve the mood.
Coconut milk contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) fatty acids, which help enhance physical performance and increase energy expenditure. It is also very hydrating and helps the liver and kidneys function properly, meaning better fat metabolization and waste removal from the body.
Bananas are also loaded with mood-boosting tryptophan, which gets converted to serotonin (the feel-good chemical) in the brain. They’re also wonderful at providing us with stable energy throughout the day. In fact, just two bananas provides enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout!
It’s super easy to make your own coconut milk – you can find out how to do so here.
