Coconut Egg Nog (Santa’s Magic Power Endurance Potion)

Shares

Remember that fat is a very efficient form of energy for long distance hauls and Santa surely needs proper nutrition to travel the globe with 9 reindeer in just one night!

Some important highlights of this high-fat holiday beverage:

  • Coconuts are highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.
  • It’s a fact this is high in fat and so it should only be consumed in moderation. For one night, the benefits outweigh the cons.
  • The fat that is provided, however, is in the form of lauric acid, which is converted in the body into a highly beneficial compound called monolaurin, an antiviral and antibacterial that destroys a wide variety of disease causing organisms.
  • Should Santa be lactose intolerant, this recipe will sit well with him.
