I’m a big fan of a smoothie. It works perfectly for me as a breakfast on the run and is also ideal when the curse of the braces is really going for it. There are some smoothies that feel like breakfast in a glass, but this Pineapple and Coconut Smoothie is more of a ‘drink me at anytime of the day’ smoothie – including at breakfast time.
I love that it’s light and fresh and slightly zingy too. #2 teenage son has declared undying love for this one, even though he’s no fan of coconut water.
We’re in the midst of a hideous sandstorm as I write this – zero visibility and gritty teeth – so this totally tropical taste is just what’s needed.
Transport yourself to a holiday island paradise …sun, sea, sand and a Pineapple and Coconut Smoothie delivered to your side. On a tray. Garnished with a paper cocktail umbrella. Now could you pass the sun cream …?
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 large slice fresh pineapple
- the juice of a small lime
- 1 cup coconut water
- a few sprigs of coriander (optional)
- Blitz all the ingredients in a high speed blender or with a stick blender, adding an extra splash of coconut water if you prefer the smoothie to be a thinner consistency.
