Lemon Coconut Pudding Preparation Tips
When selecting a green coconut, choose one that is heavy and does not have a swishy sound when shaken, meaning the inside is full of water. If you’re not able to consume all the coconut meat, keep it in the refrigerator – it has a shelf life of three to four days. It’s the same with the food made with coconut meat.
However, finding young coconuts can be difficult. They can be purchased in some conventional grocery stores during summer months, but if they’re not available, you can always opt for canned coconut meat.
Lemons with a bright, yellow color, and shiny should always be your top choice. Pick lemons that are thick-skinned and heavy for their size, since they tend to have more juice. Don’t use green-tinged lemons, as these are more acidic and not yet ripe.2
The recipe also calls for honey. Keep in mind that when choosing honey, be sure it is raw, unfiltered, 100 percent pure, and from a trusted source. It’s best to use honey in moderation because it’s high in fructose, averaging to 53 percent. A teaspoon of honey is equivalent to almost four grams of fructose, which means it can exacerbate pre-existing insulin resistance and wreak havoc on your body if consumed in excess.
If you have insulin resistance, it’s best to avoid honey and all kinds of sweeteners, since any kind of sweetener can affect your insulin sensitivity.
Why Is Lemon Coconut Pudding Good for You?
Coconuts are a powerhouse when it comes to nutrition and consuming them regularly will bring you loads of health benefits because:
- They are loaded with naturally sterile electrolytes, which feed your pH and muscle function.
- They have a high fiber content, which makes you feel full longer and helps regulate elimination.
- They’re rich in lauric acid, which converts to monolaurin. Monolaurin destroys lipid-coated viruses such as HIV, herpes, influenza, measles, and protozoa such as Giardia lamblia.
- They assist in weight loss.
Its high vitamin C content is one of the reasons why it’s best to keep a steady supply of lemons in your home. These citrus fruits also have antioxidants known as flavonoids, which are known to fight heart disease, cancer, and inflammation. Lemons also help maintain healthy skin, lower the risk of obesity, and strengthen the immune system. They’re also a good source of fiber, and contain zero saturated fats or cholesterol.
Honey offers many health benefits than you can imagine. The World Health Organization (WHO) lists honey as a demulcent, which is a substance that relieves irritation in your mouth or throat by forming a protective film. Raw, organic honey is also known to help lower your risk of acquiring colon cancer and may reduce bad cholesterol. 3
We all know that excessive consumption of sugar is a health risk, and I’ve been very vocal about it. Some people try to protect themselves from these risks and opt to use an artificial sugar like sucralose and aspartame. However, these artificial sugars bring greater health dangers. Instead of consuming these unhealthy and potentially dangerous sweeteners, I recommend stevia, a natural sweetener that comes from the herb Stevia rebaudiana.
Stevia is incredibly sweet – up to 250 times sweeter than sugar. But unlike sugar, it doesn’t cause a spike on your blood sugar. More than that, it’s safe, natural, and calorie-free. It’s also known to manage blood sugar levels, regulate blood pressure, and promote healthy weight.

By J. Davis III

Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.

Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
