The Moment shares their recipe for Pineapple Coconut Smoothies, a heavy source of Vitamin C and antioxidants, full of nutrients, and simple recipe to make

Coconut Smoothie

Morning smoothies are a staple around here. Usually we do a fruit smoothie, or a green smoothie if we’re trying to be extra healthy. But when we want to mix things up, we like to make a coconut smoothie. This recipe is basically like a healthy piña colada — tastes like the tropics and is so, so refreshing.

Just like in the tropical cocktail, our key ingredients are coconut and pineapple. We’ll use homemade coconut mylk (get the recipe here) and lots of fruit.  We have a secret trick though, to get this smoothie tasting extra yummy and refreshing, we replace traditional ice with frozen coconut water ice cubes. Just pour one 8 oz bottle of coconut water into your ice tray of choice the night before, easy-peezy.

Pineapple is great because it’s full of Vitamin C and antioxidants which are essential for rebuilding collagen, whitening teeth, and fighting free-radicals

The Coconut mylk has healthy fats which will keep you full and satiated all morning long.

Coconut Smoothie

 

Ingredients:

1 cup homemade coconut mylk (recipe here)

1 cup pineapple (frozen or fresh)

1/2 orange

Zest of 1/2 orange

1-2 dates (depending on how sweet you like your smoothies)

Coconut water ice cubes

 

Instructions:

Freeze your coconut water ice cubes the night before. Silicon ice cube trays with steel edging are the best, so they’re super easy to get out but won’t drip. We also use these trays to freeze any extra leftover smoothie. You can toss them in your next smoothie, or if you have a kid around, you can defrost them for an easy breakfast.

Throw all the ingredients into your Vitamix or whatever blender you have. Blend on high, and enjoy!
