Coconut Pineapple Smoothie

(Please note that I always use a banana as the base for all my smoothie recipes, so every other fruit is an addition)

To core a pineapple means to take out the hard centre flesh of the fruit; this part would be rough to taste if blended in a smoothie

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ripe banana (chopped into chunks)
  • 1/2 cup fresh home-made coconut milk (please do not use canned coconut milk, it is not that healthy and you will not enjoy the taste of the smoothie) Click on the coloured text link on how to make homemade coconut milk by Kauna Kitchen. Make sure to sieve out the coconut chaff before using the milk)
  • 1 cup pineapple (cored and chopped; check out this video link in coloured text on coring a pineapple)
  • 1/4 cup water, optional

(If you want to enjoy your smoothie, freeze the fruits and liquids for a while before making the smoothie, that way, you will enjoy a cold and refreshing smoothie)

PREPARATION

  1. Pour the coconut milk into the blender, add the pineapple chunks and blend for about 10 seconds or more
  2. Add the banana and blend for another 10 seconds or until the blend is smooth
  3. Serve in a cup and enjoy your smoothie with some nuts
