Benefits of eating coconut

Eating coconut or coconut-based foods has many health benefits, including:

  • Fluid balance: Coconut has a high fluid content, which helps you regulate the body’s fluid balance.
  • It reduces high blood pressure: Thanks to its high content of potassium, coconut helps the body regulate high blood pressure.
  • Diuretic and laxative effect – thanks to its high fiber content, coconut helps us avoid constipation.

  • Antibacterial and antifungal effects: These effects occur both internally and externally.

  • First, you beat the egg whites until they get a fluffy texture, then you add a little sugar. Then set the bowl aside.

  • Pour the mixture into a freezer-safe container and leave it in the freezer for at least three hours.

  • When you remove the pan from the plate,  whisk the egg whites with the coconut milk and sweeten to taste.

  • After two hours, pour the frozen berries and coconut milk cubes with egg whites into a powerful blender. Blend until everything is creamy.
