Recipe Steps

Step One

Gather up your ingredients, including frozen pineapple chunks, coconut milk, and an orange. You can use fresh pineapple, but then you’ll need to add about 1/2 cup of ice cubes to make the drink cold.

Step Two

Once you have your ingredients, it’s time to blend them up! Ideally, you would have a Blendtec or a Vitamix to ensure that the drink gets very creamy and fully blended.

FAQs

Can I use fresh pineapple instead of frozen pineapple?

Yes, but then you’ll also need to add about 1/2 cup of ice cubes so the smoothie is cold.

Can I use coconut beverage instead of coconut milk?

Yes, but it won’t be as filling.

Can I add protein powder to make it a meal?

Yes, absolutely! I would suggest using an unsweetened version of protein powder, otherwise your smoothie will be too sweet.
