Tropical Coconut Smoothie
Quick and nutritious smoothies are a favourite with children and a great way to sneak in extra nutrients into their diet. This version has a tropical twist combining ripe bananas, frozen chunks of pineapple and shredded coconut. You can buy packets of frozen fruit to make this an easy to assemble option and keeps the smoothie wonderful cool. Alternatively you can chop up fresh ripe pineapple and use this instead. To create that wonderful creamy texture this smoothie includes a couple of spoonfuls of Groovy Food’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and a little coconut milk. It’s light and refreshing, and makes a great healthy speedy breakfast option to start your day. You could also blend in some protein powder to make this more substantial or a fantastic recovery drink after exercise.
