Is Coconut Milk Good for Weight Loss?

Because coconut milk contains medium chain fatty acids, aka MCT oils, it may help with weight loss. I used to think this meant it was the very best "milk" to use in my weight loss smoothies. But I have learned more information that tempers my initial opinion. You can read more about this in more depth in my article, is coconut milk good for weight loss?

Can I Just Drink Smoothies to Lose Weight?

A coconut milk smoothie for weight loss can be a wonderful part of a nutritious diet, but I do NOT recommend having them replace all of your meals. Why?

For one reason, the protein replacement ingredients you may use in your smoothies are never going to be able to replace the valuable nutrients that you get from eating meat. 

Certain nutrients in meats, such as Taurine, are necessary for detoxification and meats are the only foods I'm aware of that offer this.

I know that some people who go meatless attempt to fill in their nutritional requirements with supplements, but I don't think this has proven successful in the long run.

Also, it is a good thing to chew your food, it is a good part of the eating and digestion experience that you do not want to eliminate completely, if you don't have to.

Is Coconut Milk Keto?

It is definitely an option for someone on the keto diet. 

It is high in fats, and low in carbohydrates. But of course if you make a coconut milk smoothie for weight loss, you must keep the macronutrients from your other ingredients in line with keto guidelines to keep the drink as a whole low carb.

This recipe, with raspberries, should keep you in a good zone for keto. If you want to add any other fruit flavors, you might want to use an extract for flavoring, rather than something like an actual banana, for instance.

Raspberry Coconut Milk Smoothie for Weight Loss

Makes 4-6 servings


4 cups homemade coconut milk 

2 cups organic frozen raspberries

4-5 droppers of liquid stevia


Add homemade coconut milk and frozen raspberries to blender, and blend. Then add 3 droppers of liquid stevia, blend, taste, and add a bit more at a time to taste.

I like to pour one in a glass to drink, and save the rest in a Ball Jar so I have extra for the next day, or a quick snack later on.
