This Tropical Blast Powder Bundle created by our Registered Dietitian is based around the tropical flavor of coconut and gets a major health boost from fiber-rich carob and antioxidant-packed pomegranate powders. Making smoothies with these base ingredients will give you delicious drinks, especially thanks to the natural sweetness of carob powder. Read on to learn about other health benefits and see recipes for the powders.
**1) Macaroon Coconut (1 lb) **– Coconut is unique because it is made primarily of saturated fat formed from medium-chained triglycerides, which can be readily used by the body for energy. Each ounce of shredded coconut delivers about 190 calories, you’ll need to keep coconut as a light addition, but a little bit will add this healthy medium-chained type of fat to your diet.
**2) Carob Powder (1 lb) ** – The natural chocolatey sweetness of carob powder is part of what makes it so unique, plus it is naturally high in fiber. Unlike chocolate, carob is caffeine-free so it doesn’t have any energy-crashing side effects.
3) Organic Pomegranate Powder (8 oz) – One impressive health benefit linked to pomegranate is that it can inhibit cell growth, including growth of invasive cells.
