As a busy mom, I have to steal moments away to myself when I can. If you’re a parent, too, you know what I mean. My day is filled with lots of “Mommy, look!” and “Mommy, come here!” sort of remarks. I love it, but a gal’s gotta unwind, too. This pineapple coconut smoothie makes me feel like I’m getting away from all the hustle and bustle, even if for a few minutes.
Smooth coconut milk, tart pineapple, creamy vanilla yogurt and sweetened coconut flakes combine into one of my favorite smoothies of all time. Yes, it’s that good, even if I do say so myself.
Now, I absolutely have to recommend Dannon Light & Fit Toasted Coconut Vanilla Greek Yogurt. No, this isn’t a paid plug for the brand… I love, love, love this yogurt because it goes well with just about any smoothie you can think of. We get ours at Sam’s in boxes of 18 along with 2 other flavors we can’t get enough of… lemon meringue and strawberry cheesecake. Those are good in dessert smoothies when you’re trying to make a drinkable version of your favorite pies. We’ll get to some of those later!
But you’re not here for my ode to Greek yogurt… you’re here for the recipe! And here it is…
