Hello friends,

You may have noted from my bio that I’m extremely fond of tropical fruit smoothies.  Well, the rumors are true!

Although my obsession with blended fruit beverages is a fairly recent development, I can’t imagine how I ever lived without them. I must have been so depressed.

If there’s one thing you can expect from me– during my time as your Magic Bullet advisor, it’s that I’ll be making A LOT of tasty smoothies, which hopefully you’ll be dying to try. So let’s begin our smoothie journey together with this delicious and easy-to make coco-nutty concoction…

 

COCONUT WHAT? SMOOTHIE

Magic Bullet parts

Magic Bullet tall cup with cross blades

 

Ingredients

  • ½ banana
  • ¾ cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • *2 leaves of fresh basil

 

Chef Prep

 

  1. Please prepare yourself by putting on your favorite Hawaiian shirt.
  2. Wow, you look great! That shirt really brings out the color of your eyes and I’m not just saying that.
  3.  Guess what? Now you’re ready to make your very own Coconut What? smoothie.

Instructions

  1. To tall cup, add ¾ cup of fresh pineapple chunks, ¼ cup unsweetened coconut milk, ½ banana, 3-4 ice cubes and 1 teaspoon of honey. *Make sure to add the honey last so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of your tall cup.
  2. Blend ingredients until smooth.

At this point, you might be wondering why I have listed 2 leaves of fresh basil. Well, during one of my first attempts at making this smoothie, I realized that I had used too much coconut milk. While the smoothie’s texture was perfect, it had a weird coconut milk after taste. If you find yourself in a similar situation, don’t fret! And don’t throw your smoothie out just yet! Try adding 2 fresh basil leaves into your tall cup with the finished product and blend until leaves are fully incorporated or appear as little green specks. The basil leaves really help to cut down the flavor of the coconut milk and also, add a nice fresh flavor to your smoothie.

(Okay, okay, I don’t own a Hawaiian shirt. But the t-shirt I’m wearing has a flower on it. Doesn’t that count?)

I hope you enjoy making this smoothie and feel as though you’ve been transported to a dreamy Hawaiian island!

 

Xo,

Kyle
