Citrus zest can be a great source of nutrients on a low carb diet as it is packed with immune boosting vitamin C and antioxidants. It also provides potassium to help keep blood pressure in check and limonene, a phytochemical that may have anti-cancer effects. Using the zest of lemons, limes and oranges can add flavor and nutrient punch to salad dressings, smoothies and more without breaking the carbohydrate bank!

Juice of 2 limes
2 cups full fat coconut milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
