Coconut Pineapple Orange Smoothie

Coconut Pineapple Orange Smoothie

This smoothie is going to take you places. If you’re like me, after just one taste, you’ll feel like you’ve been magically transported from here…

Snow Storm

to here.

Paradise

Oh, wait. Pinch me, because I might already be there.

But I don’t want to leave anybody out, so I’m sharing this tropical smoothie so you can feel like you’re in the tropics enjoying Spring Break with me!

Orange

Oranges become my fruit obsession every winter. They are cheaper, juicer, oranger… it may be cold and snowy outside, but it seems to be primo orange season. I eat one every single day for lunch in the winter. Creature of habit? Let’s just say I enjoy predictable routines.

As I started to snap a few shots of this smoothie, I thought it would be nice to have two glasses to work with. As you’ll notice, only one made it to the photo shoot. That’s because after having just one sip, I couldn’t resist drinking all of Glass #1. I didn’t really need both for a good picture anyway, right?

I should mention: if you are bothered by texture, you may want to choose a different smoothie. I don’t mind foods that are a teeny little bit textured, so this smoothie was perfect for me. But because of the oranges, you might not get a perfectly smooth blend unless you have an amazing blender.

Speaking of which, maybe the (less smooth) texture of mine was due to my blender quality. I had to do a double take to find out if my eyes were tricking me or if it truly let out a puff of smoke when I turned it on.

So you go ahead and get some Vitamin C, and (since I already had two smoothies) I’ll take advantage of my vacation and stock up on the Vitamin D.

(Any great blender recommendations? I think I might be in the market for a new one.)

  1. Hi!
    I’ve just looked through all of your healthy recipes. Some look so good, I pinned them!

    Do you peel the oranges?

  2. I had this for a snack yesterday and it was great! I doubled the recipe to make enough for my son and husband too. They both loved it. I will definitely make this again when I have some extra oranges to use up.

  3. I know it’s been a LONG time since this post, and you probably already purchased a new blender (who knows, maybe now you need another new blender), but I highly recommend the Vita-Mix. I bought one during a Vita-Mix demo at our Whole Foods three years ago and have used it almost every day since. One great bonus–it’s perfect for adding veggies to smoothies.

  4. I really like my Kitchen Aid blender! I haven’t tried the smoothie yet but it looks tasty!

  5. Made this for lunch today, I added spinach to get my greens in and this was delicious. Very easy and quick as well.

  6. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening.
    I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself spending way too much time both
    reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worth it!
