Tropical Pineapple Coconut Smoothie Breakfast Bowl

Nothing beats a smoothie for a super fast and easy nourishing breakfast or main meal. They are made in a matter of seconds and provide your body with all the nutrients you need to kick off your morning with natural energy and wholefood nutrition. Today, I'm sharing a two-ingredient smoothie recipe inspiration from fellow foodie, Anna Lindberg, plus my own version of this creamy bowl of pineapple-coconut deliciousness... let's blend!

The recipe pictured above is by fellow foodie, Anna Lindberg and is made in a matter minutes with only two ingredients. Be sure to click through for her version, or read on for my high protein six ingredient recipe inspired by hers.

Tropical Pineapple Coconut Smoothie Breakfast Bowl

First thing in the morning, personally, I like to start off my day with a high protein meal. Why? Protein is very satiating and takes some time to be fully digested and converted to energy in the body. This means, you'll be less likely to experience any mid-morning snacking or food cravings. Getting in the habit of having a high protein meal for breakfast is an excellent way to help rebalance your body weight and give you long-lasting energy!

Tropical Pineapple Coconut Smoothie


  • 250ml coconut milk, unsweetened

  • 1/2 banana (frozen creates a creamy texture)

  • 1/2 cup fresh, ripe pineapple (makes a difference if ripe or not)

  • 1/2 cup chopped papaya, (I grow my own organically on my patio)

  • 1/2 tsp ground Dutch cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup crushed ice

Add everything to a high-powered blender and blitz on high for 30 seconds. Spoon the thick smoothie into a fancy serving glass or bowl, and enjoy with tropical toppings like roasted coconut flakes, chopped pineapple, kiwi slices, and mango.

Healthy Smoothie Recipe Ideas

You can add just about anything else to the above recipe including other tropical fresh or frozen fruit, even greens and veggies. Yes I said veggies. I often use raw or steamed cauliflower, cooked sweet potato and raw broccoli to name a few. These are better than banana for low carb diets, and just as nutritious.

I'd love to know if you make this and what combinations you come up with. Tell me in the comments or hit the chat button and share your photos.
