Island Lime Collagen Colada Smoothie

Island Lime Collagen Colada Smoothie

The new Premium Marine Collagen from Further Food had us all dreamy about getting more “beach” time into our lives and we instantly knew we had to come up with a smoothie that took us to the islands to help us live vicariously through our taste buds for a bit! Packed with tropical flavors, yet not overly sweet because there’s no added sweetener. Perfect for some “me time” in the morning or even for an afternoon vitamin D session outside warming your toes under the sun!

Further Food Commentary:

Choosing unsweetened or sweetened shredded coconut will of course dictate the nutrition profile, but provides additional ways to use--in savory and sweet dishes. 1 ounce/1 serving contains 128 calories, 0.9 g of protein, 14.5 g of carbohydrates and 7.8 g of fat, 7.4 g of saturated fat. Both types of coconut are very high in saturated fat, with the unsweetened coconut providing 80% of the daily value (DV) and one ounce of sweetened coconut providing 37% DV per ounce. A high consumption of saturated fat can increase risk for obesity, high cholesterol, and heart disease. In just one serving, macadamia nuts contain high amounts of vitamin B1 and magnesium with a net of 58% of what you need in manganese and 23% of recommended daily intake of thiamin. Of the 21 g of fat found, only 3 g are saturated fat.
