  • 1 whole lime juice and zest
  • 250 ml tinned coconut milk (including the cream from the top)
  • 4 whole ice cubes
  • 2 tsp xylitol or erythritol sweetener (optional)


  • Add lime juice and most of zest (reserve some for sprinkling on top), ice cubes and tinned coconut milk to a blender (ensuring to use the cream from the top of the coconut milk tin. This is the BEST bit, so make sure you get it!)
  • Blitz the ingredients until they are smooth and then try the smoothie. Depending on your taste, this may be sweet enough. If it is not sweet enough add your sweetener of choice 1tsp at a time, blitzing in between each spoonful until you reach the desired sweetness


I advise having this as a snack instead of just drinking it alongside food due to the carbs in the smoothie. 
You could also add double cream and/or nuts/seeds and avocado.
Avoid using higher sugar fruits such as banana, mango, pineapple, passionfruit etc as higher GI fruits will not be tolerated as well.
