About This Recipe
Note: Cauliflower adds a creamy texture to the smoothie, but it’s not for everyone. If you use bananas instead, or your pineapple is very sweet, you could skip adding the dates.
- 2 cups (300 g) chopped pineapple, frozen
- 2 (50 g) cauliflower florets or 2 peeled bananas, chopped and frozen overnight
- 1 cup (200 ml) full-fat coconut milk
- 2 to 3 Tbsp lime juice, from 1 to 2 limes
- ½ tsp amla powder
- 1 to 2 dates (optional)
- 2 drops vanilla extract
- Ice (optional)
- Cold water (optional)
- ¼ cup pineapple wedges or dried coconut slices to garnish
Step 1Blend the pineapple, cauliflower, coconut milk, lime juice, amla powder, dates (if using), and vanilla for 30 seconds, or until creamy. Add 1 to 3 cubes of ice, if required, for a colder smoothie, especially if your blender runs hot. Add a splash of water or additional coconut milk as needed to help blend.
Step 2Pour the cold smoothie into a pretty glass and garnish with a pineapple wedge or a slice of dried coconut.
Level Up: This smoothie makes great popsicles: Try adding pineapple pieces and/or dried coconut for texture. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 8 hours or overnight.
