Tropical Green Smoothie

Post by Jo @ Including Cake

Not just a summer smoothie, green smoothies are packed full of nutrients to boost you all year round. Here the coconut oil creates a creamy texture without adding an obvious flavour so the greens and pineapple/banana speak for themselves.

The coconut oil offers a super smooth consistency even with kale, however if you don’t have a high powered blender you may prefer to substitute spinach which isn't so fibrous for the best texture.

Recipe: Tropical Green Smoothie

Serves 1-2


  • 2 cups coconut water (or plain water)
  • 2 cups packed kale 
  • 2 tbs melted coconut oil
  • ¾ cup pineapple chunks or 1 large banana.


Blend everything together until as smooth as possible. 

You could add part ice for immediate chill. This will be thicker so a little extra water may be needed.

Chill to serve.
