Pineapple and Ginger Smoothie

Serves: 3 to 4

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking: none

 

Ingredients

1 cup fresh pineapple pieces
2 bobby bananas
2cm piece of ginger, chopped (or use 2/4 tsp minced ginger)
1/3 cup natural yoghurt
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
Dash of vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

 

Method

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy

Garnish with pineapple, mint leaves and coconut threads

 

NB:

  • For a thicker, more slushy style version, freeze the pineapple and banana before adding to the smoothie.
  • For a green vege boost, add a handful of spinach or kale
  • For a lighter smoothie, use coconut water instead of coconut milk.
