Recipe – Pineapple and Coconut Smoothie

Virgin Pina Colada RecipeHolidays are still in full swing, so we thought we’d share a recipe for a party drink – our take on a Virgin Pina Colada.

For those of your who can resist temptation, just drink it as it is or add a few drops of rum flavouring for extra authenticity. If you’re a naughty booze lover, go ahead and mix in some liquor, at least you can comfort yourself with the thought of eating your vitamins.

Here’s what you do:

Peel the pineapple and remove the tough core. Chop the flesh into chunks and freeze for at least two hours or overnight.

Put the frozen pineapple in a blender, add the coconut and soya milks and process until smooth.

Pour the smoothie into a tall glass and serve immediately, decorated with a sprinkling of toasted coconut, if you desire.

Hi Julie, cool that you liked it. You can freeze pretty much any fruits or berries to add to your smoothies: it makes them creamier without watering down (like ice does).
