Macadamia nut oil in smoothies?

So I've been struggling to get enough calories lately, and I've been putting coconut oil in my smoothies. The problem is, I don't want to go through a bunch of coconut oil for one use, and I want to get some different fatty acids into my diet. I've heard about putting macadamia nuts in smoothies, but I don't have access to macadamia nuts, but I do have the oil. So would smoothies with macadamia nut oil taste just as good as it would be with raw macadamia nuts?, I just don't want to waste a bunch of ingredients

Are you paleo or primal? If primal, adding a scoop of full-fat no-sugar greek yogurt can up the calories and is delicious!

I was really disappointed with macadamia nut oil. Didn't taste much like the nuts. I prefer olive, avocado or hazelnut. Macadamia might taste OK in the smoothie though

You could also use melted butter

Try it out and find out...add a tablespoon and see how it tastes. It all depends on what else you have in the smoothie. I may not taste so great with veggies but could taste awesome with fruit.

If you have tried raw macnuts and THEY taste good then yes, it will taste basically the same (although not exactly).
