Margot's Pineapple Banana Coco Smoothie



I made this smoothie to send in for the Monthly Blog Patrol, an event started by Coffee from The Spice CafĂ©. This month’s event is being hosted by Sig from Live To Eat whose theme is Mixed Drinks. The recipe has to be a post from another food blog and required a minimum of two ingredients to be mixed together. Quite a few such drinks were ruled out for me because we don’t drink alcohol.

I finally found something I liked at Margot’s Euro-Caribbean food blog, Coffee & Vanilla. She has quite a few smoothies and milkshakes posted on her blog but I decided to go with the Pineapple Coco Banana Smoothie.

I didn’t make too many changes. I mostly kept to the recipe with substitutions where I didn’t have the ingredient Margot used.




Ingredients:


2 cups plain yogurt, unsweetened

1 cup milk

1 ½ cups pineapple juice

1 cup orange juice, fresh

1 25g sachet coconut milk powder

1 big ripe banana

1 tsp vanilla essence




Method:


Blend everything together, adding sugar if required, and serve cold. I added a few slivers of chocolate before serving. Makes 4 smoothies

I didn’t add sugar as the pineapple juice I bought, the banana and the oranges were quite sweet.
Sig, here’s my entry to for this month’s edition of MBP.

Thanks, it was delicious and the credit really isn't mine.

Yes, coconut milk is available in a dehydrated powdered form. We get a few brands here and Maggi is one of them.
