Recipe: Pineapple & Coconut Smoothie

Sweet, tangy pineapple and fresh tasting coconut – a real taste of the Tropics!

Goodness in a glass…

There’s something about a smoothie that makes me feel pretty saintly – even the ones that are actually filled with ice cream and syrup!  I think it’s the coolness and flavours of fresh fruit.  You just know it’s doing you good. 🙂

This one is a real taste of Summer.  It takes the flavours of a Pina Colada and turns it into something suitable for breakfast (not that I would ever want to discourage you from drinking pina coladas at breakfast too!).  I had some this morning, using an old, tired pineapple that was going brown and would otherwise have been headed for the bin.  In a smoothie, its ripe, juicy deliciousness was able to shine through.  Add in a splash of creamy coconut milk and you’ve got yourself a tasty, refreshing (and pretty healthy!) start to the day.

Pineapple & Coconut Smoothie

(or ‘Pina Coloothie’ as I like to call it…)

You will need:

300 g pineapple (peeled and chopped)

100 g ice cubes

100 ml coconut milk*

  • Add the pineapple, ice and coconut milk to your blender
  • Blitz until smooth (I leave for a minute or 2 so it’s nice and frothy)
  • Pour into glasses and add any garnishes you fancy – grated chocolate, pieces of pineapple, coconut shavings, mint….the world’s your oyster!

*I use the low fat version – plenty creamy enough for me

Important note

If you want to add a splash of rum then it certainly wouldn’t go amiss! Possibly not for breakfast though – unless you’re expecting a really bad day….
