Why You'll Love This Coconut Pineapple Smoothie

These are the ingredients you'll need to make this coconut pineapple smoothie:
- frozen pineapple
- cauliflower (steamed then frozen)
- coconut yogurt
- coconut milk
- lemon juice
- collagen (omit for vegan)
- turmeric (optional - added for color)
I recommend using frozen pineapple to get a thick smoothie bowl consistency. If you only have fresh pineapple on hand, you may use it but it will change the smoothie texture.
I always like to have cauliflower in the freezer for smoothies, as it adds nutrients without changing the taste (that's right - you cannot taste it). You can use pre-frozen cauliflower or you can make your own. I cut and then steam organic cauliflower in a steamer pot. After steaming, let it cool to room temperature, then place it on a parchment-line baking sheet and pop it in the freezer. Once frozen, place the cauliflower in storage bags or a freezer friendly container.
Collagen adds texture and protein to this pineapple coconut smoothie, but is optional. I used a vanilla collagen, but unflavored works as well.
Turmeric is added for color, but can be omitted. You can't taste it - I promise!
How to Make a Coconut Pineapple Smoothie
This healthy pineapple smoothie is super easy to make, as all smoothies should be! Here's what you need to do:
First, combine all smoothie ingredients in a high-powdered blender or food processor.
Blend the mixture until it is smooth and creamy. You will need to use the tamper to help the smoothie blend. If your blender doesn't have one, then add a bit more coconut milk. Be patient - it takes some time to get the smoothie creamy and well combined.
Once you've reached the desired consistency, pour the smoothie into two cups/glasses and add your favorite toppings. Shredded coconut is a great topping option for this recipe.
Storing Leftover Smoothie
This pineapple coconut smoothie serves two. If you have any leftovers, store them in the freezer. You can defrost the smoothie for about 30 minutes prior to eating.
