Coconut orange pineapple smoothie (recipe).
I've been making and drinking so many smoothies lately. One of my main pregnancy cravings has been smoothies, and it's a craving that I am happy to indulge in (especially since I got a new blender for Christmas!). I've been experimenting with flavors, and I recently started throwing a handful of coconut in with the fruit. It provides a fantastic tropical burst of flavor to the drink.
This recipe makes a fairly thin smoothie; simply use less juice if you want it to be thicker. I always use frozen fruit because it thickens the smoothie without having to add ice (plus it's so convenient). If you are using unfrozen pineapple, you should add a few ice cubes to the mix. This tropical smoothie brings a little bit of summer in anytime of the year.
Coconut Orange Pineapple Smoothie
Makes two smoothies
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup yogurt (I like to use plain Greek yogurt)
1 cup orange juice (you could also use pineapple juice)
1) Combine all ingredients in blender and mix until smooth. Serve.
