Pineapple, coconut and lime are the perfect tropical combo! I'm really loving the lime flavour at the moment. I keep thinking of other ways to use it. More on that later though.
This smoothie happened by complete accident! I had coconut cream, and a tin of pineapple in the cupboard. Hubby wanted a smoothie so I had to think out the box and make do with what I had. Funnily enough it turned out so great it's now a recipe in my smoothie collection.
This smoothie doesn't need any honey or maple, as the juice from the tinned pineapple is enough. The tang from the lime makes it not too sweet either. And of course the creaminess from the coconut is to die for! Give it a go, you'll love it!
