This super-simple Pineapple Coconut Vitamin C Smoothie hides a powerful little secret inside all that creamy deliciousness: it's got 140 mg of the cold-fighting vitamin. For women, that's nearly double the recommended daily allowance (source: Mayo Clinic). Want even more Vitamin C? Consider adding vitamin-rich papaya, guava, kiwi, more orange juice (or orange segments), a few fresh kale leaves, or even a few sprigs of parsley.
- 1 cup fresh or frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 medium frozen banana
- ¾ cup light coconut milk
- ½ cup pure orange juice
