Coconut Pineapple Green Smoothie {Dairy Free}

Coconut Pineapple Mango {Dairy Free}

About a year ago, when I first heard about Green Smoothies I thought it was really “too healthy”, even for me. Honestly this green drink is not really appetizing. Plus it’s made essentially of spinach. Seriously? God, I wasn’t brave enough to try that. But then I kept seeing it on various blogs and on Pinterest and they all swore I didn’t taste healthy or strange. They claimed it tasted actually pretty good. Humm really? I had to give it a try. The first one I made was from Kristin at Iowa Girl Eats. It had banana and peanut butter so I knew I was going to love it. And the title said “my  top secret diet weapon”. Who doesn’t want a diet weapon? I certainly did! I still wasn’t convinced with the spinach though. But then I thought… no big deal, I’ll just throw it away if it’s not good. But guys…it was delicious! I could barely taste the spinach and the strongest flavors where those of the banana and peanut butter. LOVE. The only thing that I didn’t like was the use of Greek yogurt and milk. My stomach doesn’t like dairy and I try to keep my consumption of it very occasional. So I decided to use coconut milk in lieu of cow milk to add some exotic flavor and to make it dairy free and vegan. I left out the banana to save on the carbs and I figured pineapple was the perfect alternative.

Quick story on a side note. Solal saw me drinking this smoothie and told me it looked disgusting (with the face that goes with it). Because he’s an open minded guy, he still decided to give it a try, but you know, just to prove himself he was right. Aaaand he ended up drinking the whole glass and ask me to make some again. See? This smoothie is powerful!

  1. This sounds very good – to me. Not sure my husband would want to even try it, despite the fact that I’ve been feeding him all sorts of different smoothies for breakfast. Poor thing. The only thing I would do differently is add protein powder – either plain or vanilla, to up the protein level. That would still keep the carb level good for me. Thanks for posting this.

    1. I often try to add protein powder to my smoothies but I really don’t like the taste, it always ruins the thing for me… But I totally agree, a bit more protein in this smoothie wouldn’t hurt 😉

  2. Really excited to try this out! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Wondering if I can use fresh coconut juice instead of coconut milk though? Got lots of fresh coconuts from where I’m from! 🙂

  3. Are you using the kind of coconut milk in the can or the kind that silk makes, in the carton? I’ve been weary of these green smoothies but I need an easy way to work in some fresh veggies and this seems like it would be the ticket!

    1. I’m using the canned stuff. Green smoothies are the perfect way to eat more veggies without even noticing it, except maybe for the green color!
