Did you Know the Health + Beauty Benefits of Coconut Milk?

Coconut milk is highly nutrient rich and something you might want to consider adding to your diet for its health benefits.

Until recently, coconut milk (not to be confused with coconut water, which is found when you break open a coconut; the milk comes from the white “meat” of the coconut) was considered too high in saturated fat and therefore bad for you. More research has proven that coconut milk not only consists of of minerals such as  Potassium, selenium, zinc, magnesium,  vitamins like B12, but it can actually help you lose weight if that’s your goal.
That creamy coconut milk...? Lap it up! it's so nutritious for you!
Beauty Benefits of coconut milk: Coconut milk contains copper (the mineral, not the metal!) which improves skin’s elasticity. It acts as a natural anti-aging agent.
Stress-Reliver: A healthy amount of magnesium in coconut milk will relax your nerves. Feel free to pour yourself a cold glass of this tropical, highly rejuvenating drink instead.
Coconut Milk L.o.V.e for Hair: Boost hair growth with Coconut! Creamy coconut milk is loaded with proteins that are essential for hair growth, plus it contains fatty acids that make your hair shiny (especially in winter when our hair tends to be more brittle).

Warm up 1/2 cup-1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk
owly pour the milk through your hair and scalp
With the pads of your fingertips, gently massage your scalp making small, circular motions
Let it sit for 15 minutes
Then shampoo and condition as usual

Coconut milk is an extremely healthy and undervalued drink that’s actually not just nutrient, but also tasty and refreshing! You can even throw it in the blender with some strawberries, pineapples, and ice (for the naughty folks: toss some rum in there, too) for an even more delicious elixir.
