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.

Hi Liz, I haven’t tried it without a banana … with so few ingredients, it is pretty essential to the recipe, but might be totally doable! Perhaps add some ice to keep it cold and a little Greek yogurt for texture.

Sky, I used canned lite coconut milk. But it’s a pretty flexible recipe; either will work! The canned coconut just tastes richer.

Hi, Karen, I’m new convert and still missing meat sometimes 🙂 Found this while searching, wow, thank you, It tastes great! And almost cost nothing since I live in tropical country and plant my own banana and coconut trees, well, at least my dad do 🙂 thanks again for the share.
