Summer Smoothie

I hope you have been enjoying the fantastic weather we’ve been having recently and keeping your fluid levels topped up.

We are currently putting together our summer cookbook and I’ve been tweaking the ‘juices, smoothies and refreshers’ section this morning.  One of the most common things we hear in this weather is that water can be boring to drink on it’s own, I’ll offer some more solutions to this later in the week but for a quick fix for today here is a recipe for a ‘Tropical Shake’ that is really tasty and super healthy.

Tropical Shake

2 bananas
½ pineapple
100 ml coconut milk
1 teaspoon coconut oil

Whizz all of the ingredients together in a blender. Pour over ice and serve immediately.

The coconut oil solidifies into little tasty chunks, please don’t worry about the fat content of coconut oil. I’ll post about the many health benefits of coconut oil and the myths about saturated fat soon.
