Yellow is the fourth, delicious color in “Smoothie Week”. And I’m pleased to say this smoothie is all about pineapple!
Any of my friends will tell you I go a little nuts when fresh pineapple goes on sale at the store (texts sent out to everyone, pineapples as gifts, inviting everyone over for pineapple something or other). It kind of makes me ridiculously happy.
So for the yellow color in “Smoothie Week”, I decided to make one of my favorite smoothies — a pineapple-banana-coconut combination. I ended up using some coconut milk I had on hand, which also gave this a touch of creamy-ness. But if you enjoy coconut, you’re welcome to add in some extra grated coconut. (Or if you don’t like coconut, you can also substitute in some juice instead.)
Always a winner of a smoothie in my house. Enjoy!!
You will love this fresh pineapple smoothie recipe! It’s tangy, sweet, healthy, and can be prepared in 5 minutes or less.
2 cups fresh pineapple, cut into large pieces
1/2 cup coconut milk (I used “light” coconut milk)
1/2 cup ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth and well-combined.
If you make this recipe, be sure to snap a photo and hashtag it #gimmesomeoven. I'd love to see what you cook!
For a more concentrated smoothie, feel free to omit the ice and freeze the (pre-cut) pineapple and (pre-peeled) banana ahead of time.
