What a great way to spend a summer evening delighting with a refreshing pineapple coconut banana smoothie that bring your mind to a tropical holiday. Pairing banana with fresh pineapple and coconut is definitely a good way to achieve this. I also added some lime juice to bring a bit of citrus flavor and create a perfect balance between tart and sweet.. mmm.. feel already in the Tropical Paradise.
This creamy smoothie, can also be a great way to start your day and serve it  for breakfast.
This drink is high in saturated fats because of the coconut, but don’t worry, it’s a good saturated fat. It seems that not all saturated fats are bad.  The plant-based saturated fats as in coconut, may have a neutral or even positive effect on cholesterol as compared to animal-based saturated fats. Just make sure to use the right coconut milk that is organic and has no guar gum or other additives, or even better make it your own.
