Description

Frozen banana, pineapple and coconut milk blended together with added superfood spirulina to create a delicious pina colada smoothie. Serve as a drink or a smoothie bowl.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 pineapple slices + short bamboo skewers (I cut my longer ones to make them shorter)
  • ½ teaspoon of coconut oil for frying
  • 1 large banana, diced and frozen (1 cup diced)
  • 1 cup diced ripe pineapple chunks (fresh or canned in juice)
  • 1 cup full-fat coconut milk (I used the thickened part)
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina powder
  • 1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
  • 1/41/2 cup water (depending on the texture you like)
  • Optional: a couple of ice-cubes (for thicker, colder summer version)
  • coconut flakes, nuts, and seeds for garnish

Instructions

  1. Pierce pineapple slices onto two skewers and pan fry in coconut oil over medium-high heat (about two minutes on each side, until golden grill marks appear). Set aside.
  2. Add the frozen banana, pineapple chunks, coconut cream, spirulina powder and lime juice to a blender or a food processor.
  3. If making as a drinking smoothie, add 1/2 cup of water or coconut water and process until smooth. Add a little extra water for thinner texture.
  4. For a thicker smoothie bowl, add less water or you can also freeze a few of the pineapple chunks. Whiz until thick and smoothe.
  5. Serve in glasses or bowls, as you wish. Garnish with some toasted coconut flakes or a handful of nuts and seeds and grilled pineapple skewers.
