Coconut pineapple banana smoothie - tastes like the Caribbean!!

Sorry about the long list of nouns one after another in the title of this recipe. I was considering going with ‘tropical smoothie’, but I personally find descriptive titles more tempting – so coconut pineapple banana smoothie it is.

It’s not often that every single ingredient of a recipe is listed in its title, but in this case, what you see is what you get. Literally: coconut milk, pineapple and bananas. They combine to give the most incredible tropical flavour that makes me feel like I’m back in Mexico.

(a dash of rum wouldn’t go amiss either, though depending on your lifestyle it may be less suitable for breakfast that way…)

Coconut pineapple banana smoothie - tastes like the Caribbean!!

I am quite partial to a good smoothie – I always go for some sort of juice or smoothie at a cafe when everyone else is having coffee or Coke.

Are you into blenders (as much as anyone can be ‘into’ a kitchen appliance, anyway)? Let me know if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see me make over the next few months! I’ve never had such a great blender before so I’m a bit of a blender newbie. To be honest, I’ve spent most of the time I’ve been using it just staring in awe at the way it makes the liquid rise right up in the jug with a big hole down the middle… I’m guessing this novelty will wear off with time? I hope so, because it makes for very unproductive cooking.

  1. great! I had no pineapple so I made it with a can of peaches instead…gives a beautiful colour.5 stars

  2. I improvised this recipe because I did not have pineapples and used canned lychee with lychee syrup instead.
    Added 2ml of vanila extract and one-two teaspoons of sugar (or honey) according to taste. Came out great.

  3. Wow! This coconut pineapple banana smoothie recipe is incredible! I’m seriously so inspired right now. I need to add honey to recipe and it would be perfect. Thx for sharing Becca!5 stars

  4. Made this smoothie tonight. Earlier I divided the pineapple with it’s juice in to the pockets of a ice cube tray and froze the whole thing. Used half of them in the smoothie. It was delicious. Will be make this a lot.

  5. Lovely blender. I do have a Vitamix that does everything I need it to, but it does take a while to liquify bulky veggies….more blades would be nice.

    The smoothie recipe probably has 50 grams of sugar. I can’t do that to my body, although I am sure it is delicious.
