Coconut Vanilla Bean Smoothie

This smoothie recipe has MCT, medium chain triglycerides, oil in it. Just a small amount of creamy MCT oil can help those on the ketogenic diet optimize their weight loss. The oil allows the body to easily reach and maintain ketosis to speed up the fat-burning process.
