Ahhh- this Juicy Pineapple & Coconut Smoothie is so refreshing. I am totally a summer girl. Not sure about you, but I love being outdoors. I love hanging out by the pool, drinking large (and I mean large!) cold smoothies, and yes- I even like sweating! Talk to my sister and she is the exact opposite! It’s funny how that happens, right?! I mean we both grew up in the same place (Texas- hello heat!) and experienced the same weather but hold two totally different viewpoints!
Seriously, you MAY have to deal with some complaining on my end when winter comes. I hate to admit that complaining is one of my cold weather coping mechanisms. Until then, I am going to continue to relish in the summer sunshine and enjoy this Juicy Pineapple & Coconut Smoothie!
I had to add the word “juicy” in the title because I mean “Wow, that pineapple isn’t juicy at all” said no one ever.
Every time I cut into a pineapple, the juiciness is everything. I really think they have the perfect combination of tangy/sourness with the subtle sweet after taste that of course makes you keep wanting more. More juicy pineapple please!!
So if you are a summer person like myself, you will totally love this smoothie out by the pool embracing the sunshine! And if you are not a summer person, this smoothie will help you through the heat! it’s a win win situation.
Not to mention, the pineapples in this smoothie are accompanied by sweet, hydrating coconut water and nourishing spinach. I mean really?! What’s not to love about this smoothie?!
A delicious, hydrating green smoothie! Will provide you with energy, nourishment, and satisfy your sweet tooth!
