Coconut milk is a versatile staple to keep on hand. Mix in with smoothies, oatmeal, or yogurt for a rich, creamy taste. Not only does coconut milk add a rich, creamy taste to lots of dishes, but it’s also full of healthy saturated fats such as medium chain triglycerides. Some studies have shown that medium-chain triglyceride or MCT present in coconut milk may help promote weight loss. The reason being that MCT may boost heat generation (thermogenesis) to burn more calories. MCT also helps promote satiety making you feel full for longer.
