Coconut-Cocoa-Macadamia Smoothie

This tasty beverage falls somewhere between a snack, a drink, a dessert and a fat bomb. What's a fat bomb? Well ... it's a recipe containing a high quantity of fat!

This dairy-free treat is loaded with quality fats, from the cocoa powder to the coconut milk to the macadamia nuts. These fats will help you feel satisfied and "full" far longer than any non-fat, sugary shake you'll find. This cool and flavorful flurry of tastiness will quench, delight and satisfy!

This, I realize, is contrary to what most of us have been told for the majority of our lives, but ... fat is awesome! Not all fats, mind you, but ... GOOD fats are GOOD!

Good fats come in the form of: olive, flaxseed, palm, avocado, coconut and other nut oils. Animal fats are also quite healthy: butter, ghee, lard, tallow, poultry fats, etc.

Bad fats come in the form of: margarine, hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, manmade trans-fats often found in things like butter flavored "spreads". Other highly processed oils like canola, corn, vegetable and soybean should be avoided.

Here's a list of 10 reasons why fat rocks: Drink up!

Toppings Note: I cheated when I made this. It's a dairy free beverage, but in the heat of the moment, I grabbed some cream, whipped it and topped the glass with sweetened whipped cream and some toasted coconut and macadamia. That's just the wrong topping, in my opinion. Whoops! Haste makes waste! In any event, you can make a lovely whipped topping with coconut milk. Here's how!
