Pineapple Coconut Smoothie

What a beautiful sunshiny day! As I was saying yesterday, I wish we could skip straight through to Spring.  However, we are expecting 10 cm of snow this week…. I guess we have a little more time ahead of us before the bluebirds sing. Oh well, those fresh snowflakes can be quite pretty. Earlier today, I was over at my mom’s house working on a website design for her. After experiencing a couple of hiccups along the way, it was sure time for a break and today’s smoothie.  I chopped up some fresh pineapple and a frozen banana,  added a few tablespoons of unsweetened coconut, almond milk, and a touch of cinnamon – creating a healthy version of one of my favorite tropical beverages, pina colada.  What a sensational treat. You have to try this one!

Thank you for commenting and leaving your ideas for smoothie ingredients in my last few posts,  I will definitely be trying coconut milk in one of my next creations.  I think it would be delicious in this recipe, I just didn’t have any on hand! Next time  🙂 I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did!

  1. Ooh – pineapple, feels like forever since I ate that (which makes sense since I´m usually having it during summer by some reason)! Will save this and try! 🙂

  2. Emily, this has just made my day! My two fave ingredients all in one yummy drink 🙂 Thanks for stopping by yesterday by the way! Yeah I hear ya about the makeup. I don’t even have kids but ever since I started working form home, I’ve started cutting back on my usual. And my usual being eyeliner and mascara! The Nars Freshening Lotion is great. I would definitely recommend it. It just leaves your face clean and moist (enough). Have a lovely weekend! x

  3. This was such a perfect tasty combo smoothie! I ended up with a little leftover, stuck it in the fridge and the next morning it was as yummy as if I had just made it! I am so going to wow my guest with this one come Summer time!
