Pineapple, Banana and Coconut Smoothie

"I made this smoothie, trying to copy a store-bought kind and this is so much better! The fresh pineapple gives it such a light, fresh flavour- it's just not the same with canned pineapple. If any of this smoothie makes it to the fridge, you may like to water it down with some pineapple juice as the coconut milk thickens as it cools."

  1. I have to admit I changed this up quite a bit but it was absolutely delicious. (I kind of hate when people review a recipe, give it only 3 stars, and list the 15 different changes they made! But this recipe was great as is. However, I just had extra things lying around that I decided to use as well.) I used frozen pineapple, one banana, 1/4 C of unsweetened shredded coconut, 1 tbsp coconut oil, a thin slice of ginger, and a whole peeled lime. I used unsweetened coconut milk. Holy cow, that sucker was amazing! Tropical, yummy, smooth and creamy, with just a bit of zing.
  2. I have to admit to using canned pineapple because it's what I have and the local store doesn't carry fresh pineapple. Allowing that fresh would undoubtedly be better, this was still very good and it made a lovely lighter lunch.
  3. Very refreshing. I used a granny smith apple which gave the drink a nice tartness.
  4. Oh tropical & really delicious. It was a bit of work because straining it through the sieve makes it the perfect 5 smooth, creamy stars. I used bananas that were a bit under ripe (a little green tip), Thai coconut milk that was strangely separated even upon shaking the can before opening, but it blended up fine, red delicious apple, plus the fresh pineapple. I may make this again. Made for ZWT7 The Pacific Islands, for my team Food.Commandos
  5. LOVELY!! I used freshed juiced coconut cream and frozen 'nanas and made it in my smoothie machine...super creamy and delish...enjoyed on a freakishly warm day in March here (close to 80 degrees in central NJ!!!) ...was like taking a trip to the tropics in a glass- THANK YOU!!!- made for "I Recommend Tag"


I am a primary school teacher living in Bristol, England. At the moment I teach Kindergarten, known here as Reception. I really love my job but it doesn't leave much time for hobbies! I enjoy cooking for friends and aim to try new recipes as often as possible! My signature dish has to be White Chocolate Blondies, as it is my most requested sweet treat, and I definitely have a sweet tooth! Update- 5-5-09: Somebody was very thoughtful and gave me the gift of a premium membership. I can honestly say it made me feel so good! If you're out there, THANK YOU so much! I can't quite believe the generosity... <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" > <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src="">
