Hope you had a great weekend. Mine was blah - most of it was spent in bed trying to get over a flu/sore throat/cold combo - not good. I have not bee sick in a long time. Plus, laying about not doing anything was surprising difficult for me - but I had to listen to my body and take some time to rest - not quite 100% but doing a whole lot better. As you ca guess, kitchen time was non existent except for recreating this smoothie which was the only thing I could keep down.
Also with the temps in these parts clocking 100 degrees and above - it was helpful to have something cool and refreshing. I am obsessed with smoothies. I did a whole summer series of smoothie recipes over on the lifestyle blog last summer and I still refer to those recipes to get through hot summer days and/or get healthy eating habits back on track. - This recipe is the perfect escape from the heat.
What you need
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 1 cup mango chunks
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 banana
- handful coconut flakes, toasted
Combine all the ingredients except the coconut flakes in a blender and blend until you have a smooth consistency.
Toast the coconut flakes in oven at 325 F for 5 to 7 minutes or in a medium skillet over medium heat for the same amount of time.
Sprinkle toasted flakes on smoothie and serve.
