Thai Style Banana, Pineapple & Coconut Smoothie
Today I’d like to share with you a nice and easy recipe how to make a Thai style banana, pineapple & coconut Smoothie. Summertime is coming soon and this is a perfectly refreshing and tropical drink for the season. What is more, banana, pineapple and coconut are a good combination for a Thai style smoothie. To make it extra special, I suggest you put in a small drop of Pandanus (Pandan, in Thai: Bai Toey) flavour or some additional coconut extract 🙂 The Pandanus flavour will make your smoothie a little greenish but gives your drink a nice aroma.
Thai Style Smoothie
Ingredients for two smoothies:
- 1 large ripe banana, cut into chunks
- 2 cups of fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
- 1/2 cup of light or regular coconut milk
- 1/2 cup of ice
- 1 drop of Pandanus flavour and/or coconut extract (optional)
- additional sugar or sweetener, as to taste (optional)
Put the banana and pineapple chunks with the coconut milk and the ice into a blender and mix until everything is smooth. Optionally, you may add a drop of pandanus flavour or coconut extract and additional sugar or sweetener, as to taste.
You may garnish your tropical drink with some cream and dried coconut flakes on top 🙂 It’s perfect for breakfast but also as a snack or a dessert.
In addition, you can also make delicious ice-pops with this smoothie. You just need an ice pop container. When the mixture is nearly frozen, put in the popsicle sticks in centre. Freeze for at least five hours or preferably overnight. By the way, if you’ve acquired a taste for bananas and coconut now, you may also want to try ‘Kluai Buad Chi’ which is a Thai bananas in coconut milk dessert.
An easy-peasy recipe, isn’t it? Hope you’ll give it a try! 🙂
