It’s not summer season yet where I’m at, but some days in mid-spring are just hot and humid. In days like that, my mind wishes for some fresh coconut juice, sweet juicy pineapple, a cool splash in the beach or a waterfall. I grew up in the tropics where coconut trees are everywhere, and fresh coconut water is not a scarcity. Who says I can’t have some tropical taste now? I still can, but not on a regular basis 😀 If you want some healthy and refreshing tropical refreshment, follow the simple ingredients and steps I share below to start with. This smoothie is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants. Also great for those who want to keep a healthy weight. I hope you’ll love it like I do. Let’s drink healthy!
Good source of fiber, vitamins C, B6, B12, B1, manganese, potassium, biotin, copper, pantothenic acid, calcium, folate
1 cup pineapple chunks
1 to 2 medium bananas
1 big ripe yellow mango
1 cup coconut water (fresh or in can)
1 cup orange juice (I prefer freshly squeezed)
1. Wash, peel and slice all fresh fruits. If you use canned pineapple, that’s fine.
2. Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on high until well-blended and smooth.
3. Enjoy it chilled or iced.
Makes about 3-4 cups! It taste good till the last drop! 🙂
