Tropical Smoothie

This healthy and delicious Tropical Smoothie is made with pineapples, yogurt, bananas, coconut milk and sweetened with honey. It tastes just like a healthy Pina Colada, is super refreshing, and is perfect for breakfast or a snack.

All the refreshing flavors in a pina colada can be found in this tasty tropical smoothie.

Yes, we did have quite a bit of rain last month which kept us inside and cool but lately it's just been hot and humid.

There's nothing I like better than cool, refreshing drinks this time of the year and lately, smoothies have been on the menu. When the weather is hot, smoothies are our breakfast or snack of choice.

Smoothies are healthy, they taste great and they are perfect to serve guests at outdoor get-togethers. I also love that smoothies are filling and aren't loaded with unnecessary sugars.

How To Make A Tropical Smoothie

This new smoothie recipe has been our favorite smoothie so far.

It's super easy to make and can be ready in 5 minutes! It's healthy, it's filling, and it's absolutely delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks (you can also use fresh)
  • 1 banana
  • 6 ounces vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup coconut milk (you can also use regular milk)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • whipped cream (optional)

In a blender, combine the pineapple, banana, yogurt, milk, and honey. Puree until smooth.

Pour into glasses.

Garnish with whipped cream, if desired.

I like to use frozen pineapple but fresh will work great too. Just add 1/2 cup of ice cubes to the blender if you're using fresh pineapple.

    During this pandemic, I am experiment with recipes to help with weight loss. This is so good. Although I didn’t use the whip cream it was still great. Thank you for the recipe

    1. Hi Peggy,
      You can find coconut milk in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. It should be near the cow’s milk and soy milks. You can actually use any type of milk in this recipe but I happen to love the flavor the coconut milk adds to it.
