OK, here’s my new favorite afternoon smoothie recipe. I’ve adapted it from the “Coconutty ‘Nana” recipe from the Big Book of Juices.
Cutting board, knife, juicer (I have the Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain 700-Watt Juice Extractor), Vitamix (or other awesome) blender.
- 1/2 pineapple
- 2 bananas
- 8 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
- 2 Tbsp coconut milk
- Ice (optional)
- Get the pineapple and bananas into a juice-able state, then toss them in the juicer.
- Pour the fruit juice into the Vitamix, along with ALL the pulp left behind in the juicer (unless you see something obviously not appropriate, of course).
- Add the almond milk and coconut milk to the Vitamix, blend and enjoy!
Tip: You can pour this over ice, or add ice into the Vitamix for a cooler treat.
The original recipe makes about 2 servings, but I expect that with adding all that pulp, this is more like 6-8. 🙂
