A while back I concocted a recipe for a smoothie that has a high fat and high calorie content paired with a low dollar cost, roughly $2-2.50 for almost 1000 calories. I havent seemed to gain one pound while integrating it with my regular diet and came here to see why that may be. I have heard that avocados are great for increasing the metabolism and the fatty acids destroy stubborn belly fat but when you have a freakishly high metabolism already could this be bad? I am just about to start on p90x and am figuring the more calories that dont have added sugar or bad fats the better.

Anyway if youre looking for an amazing breakfast or lunch smoothie that isn't heavy, keeps you full and supplies a lot of energy then here it is. I think the only downside is that the protein content is negligible but I suppose some type of powder could be added if desired.

The recipe is as follows
1 avocado (250 calories and 20g fat)
1 cup (half can) coconut milk (over 550 calories and 50g of sat fat)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup pineapple
1/3 cup papaya
unsweetened almond milk to thin it out if it doesnt blend as thin as desired

The saturated fat sounds insane but I found this information listed at


If you are concerned about the saturated fat content in coconut milk, know that this saturated fat has been shown in many independent studies to be a good saturated fat, easily metabolized to give your body quick energy. Contrary to popular myth, it does not transform into bad cholesterol to clog up arteries. In fact, cultures around the world that depend on coconut as their main source of fat have been found to be free of heart disease. The principle fatty acid in coconut milk is lauric acid, which is the same fat found in abundance in mother's milk and is known to promote normal brain development and contribute to healthy bones. It also has important anti-carcinogenic and anti-pathogenic properties and is less likely to cause weight gain than polyunsaturated oils.

Also a lot of people think that avocados are terrible for people watching their weight due to their fat content but Ive found numerous websites that say otherwise
is just one of them.
