Pineapple Coconut Smoothie

1

Fresh fruit, creamy but light coconut milk beverage, and fresh juice combine to make this refreshing pineapple coconut smoothie recipe by Julie Hasson.

As is, this pineapple coconut smoothie is loaded with vitamin C from the juice, vitamin D and vitamin B12 from the coconut milk beverage, and a surprising bonus: digestive enzymes from the pineapple. Pineapple contains bromelain, which is thought to have anti-inflammatory powers in addition to it’s protein digesting powers.

For a super-strength smoothie, you can add some dairy-free protein powder (1 to 2 tablespoons), probiotic powder, amino acids, and/or ground flaxseed.

  2. Serve right away. If desired, garnish the smoothie with a sprinkle of sweetened dried coconut.
