Tropical Smoothie with Pineapple, Coconut, and Banana

It’s been so hot here in Oregon this week so I decided to cool my kids down with these smoothies. They took minutes to make and my kids were thrilled! They said they were the best smoothies ever! They loved the bits of shredded coconut in each sip. I happen to have enough ingredients for another batch tomorrow and my kids are so excited when I told them. This recipe is a keeper!

Combine the ice, coconut milk, coconut yogurt, banana, pineapple, shredded coconut, lime, vanilla, and honey together in a blender. Click the smoothie button and blend until smooth. Serve garnished with pineapple. Enjoy.

    I have been on the hunt to make a pina colada smoothie and this sounds like it. I have to give this a try. It’s been hot here too. Lots of storms also. Not complaining because I love summer and can’t stand winter!!!!

    Hi Pam,
    I just checked to see if I had all the ingredients and yippee! I do! We have cooled down a bit here but the humidity is in the forecast once again with high temps. Your tropical smoothie would be just perfect for the days ahead. I can see why the kids would be so thrilled. I just made fresh yogurt and may use it as is because this time it came out really thick and creamy:) Thank you so much for sharing, Pam…I’d love one now out in the garden:)

    This sounds just delicious. I love that you’ve combined all these wonderful tropical flavours. I bet the lime really gives it an extra fruity hit, as well. I think I might have to give this one a go!
