    Pasturized milk, while hard to digest for some, doesn't have the issues homogenized milk has.

    I can't find raw milk either, so I stick to grass-fed cream (pasteurized) in my smoothies. Cream is better anyway, since it's not carby/insulinogenic like milk, is a great source of saturated fat and because it doesn't have proteins that get denatured by heat (and saturated fat hold up well to heat, anyway), it's a good choice:-)

    Am I the only one that uses coconut oil in my smoothie? I LOVE IT! yum, yum, yum... The only liquid I add is water. Otherwise, it's all greens, with some fruit to make it sweeter.

I didn't want to buy the big cans because I like to mix up breakfasts and didn't want leftovers sitting around.
    When I use coconut milk (which is most of the time) I use 1/4 cup or 1/2 cup.

    I have problems digesting dairy as well. But, I LOVE the taste of cheese. I buy raw cheese once in a while and enjoy that a little bit at a time. I also like parmesan cheese because of the flavor and convenience. Again, just a little won't hurt.

    I have tried using coconut oil before, but it turns to a solid because the temperature of my smoothies is below 76 degrees.....

    I have even melted it before and dumped it in but it of course just turned into a solid...

    Yeah, if your smoothie is frozen it will clump a bit. I add it at the beginning of my blend, with nothing cold added. Adding just frozen pineapple at the end... easy to drink... and YUMMY!

    After lots of dairy my whole life, I started to get ill from eating it. As I understand it, our bodies stop producing lactase as we grow up/older. Has the elimination of dairy helped the problem?

    I will have to try that because I do love coconut oil. A little pineapple sounds even better!!
