They’re not a fruit you’d normally find in your fruit bowl, but lychees are seriously underrated.
An amazing source of fibre and Vitamin B, lychees are full of essential nutrients like magnesium, phosphorus, iron, manganese and copper. Blended with our frozen Coconut packs, they create a deliciously creamy tropical bowl best topped with fresh fruits and a handful of your favourite granola.
Although around 89% of the fat in coconut meat is saturated, most of these fats are medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are absorbed intact in your small intestine and used by your body to produce energy. Coconuts are high in fibre, copper, iron, selenium and especially high in manganese, which is essential for bone health and the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and cholesterol.
