Coconut, Pineapple and Banana Smoothie


This smoothie was inspired by the Innocent smoothies one of a similar flavour combination! Initially I did not really like their coconut, pineapple and banana one as I thought it tasted of sun tan lotion, but I have now come round to the idea.

It is a much needed taste of sunshine, summer, and beaches (especially with snow in April, what's that all about!). I can imagine sitting on a beach somewhere in the tropics sipping one of these. It is a kind of non-alcoholic pina-colada. Unless you fancy adding a bit of rum yourself as a summer treat.

The other half said this smoothie was tastier than the Innocent one - maybe as it was freshly made, and had loads of ice in as well to thicken it up. A good review anyway!

Ingredients
  • 1/2 pineapple
  • 2 bananas
  • 200 mL orange juice
  • 12 ice cubes
  • 100 mL coconut milk
Peel and core the pineapple, chop all the fruit into small chunks and place everything into a blender.

Whizz it up for about 2 minutes until really smooth.

Serve in glasses with a cocktail umbrella in to get a real taste of the tropics!
