Pineapple Mango Coconut Smoothie

Pineapple Mango Coconut Smoothie | http://www.roseclearfield.com

I’ve never made as many smoothies in my life as I have this past month. The soft foods recommendation for major dental work is no joke. I didn’t realize that soft foods meant foods that require no chewing whatsoever. (It’s not a coincidence that I’m following a soup recipe with a pineapple mango coconut smoothie recipe.) I love soup and smoothies. But when it comes to food, I’m also a huge texture person. And needless to say, I haven’t eaten a lot of raw vegetables, cashews, crackers, or pretzels lately, which has been tough.

As with any diet, it’s best to focus on the foods you can eat instead of stressing about the foods you can’t eat. For the past month, I’ve eaten a lot of the following foods.

  • Soup. In addition to the baked potato soup, I made batches of Foodiecrush’s slow cooker Thai chicken soup and How Sweet Eats’ chicken and dumplings.
  • Smoothies! Most of the time, I’ve been making the exact smoothie in this post or some close variation of it. Mango and pineapple is my all-time favorite fruit combination, but I like pineapple and peach a lot, too.
  • Yogurt. I’m not a huge yogurt eater, but I like vanilla Greek yogurt and several Yoplait Whips flavors.
  • Orzo pasta. I make a Rachael Ray version with onions, garlic, cheese, and chicken broth.
  • Ramen noodles
  • Avocados
  • Potatoes – mashed, baked, hash browns
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Oatmeal – with a little peanut butter and brown sugar <3

As I’ve been able to do a little more chewing, cheese ravioli and roasted vegetables have also been great. I’ve been on a huge roasted vegetable kick and have made a weekly round of butternut squash or Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. If you like sweet butternut squash, try Life Made Sweeter’s maple cinnamon roasted butternut squash.

The pineapple mango coconut smoothie is simple, cold, refreshing, and tropical. I love coconut and enjoy sweetening a smoothie with coconut water and sweetened shredded coconut instead of regular sugar. If you aren’t crazy about coconut, forgo the shredded coconut, swap in milk for the coconut water, and add a drizzle of honey if you need a little extra sweetness.

Recipe Notes

The combination of ice and frozen fruit makes for a very cold smoothie. Use fresh fruit or thaw your frozen fruit in the microwave for 20-30 seconds for a slightly less frigid smoothie.

And yes, this is essentially my go-to green smoothie recipe, but without the green. I still love the green version. But cold has really been helping my teeth, so I’ve been sticking to this iced version the past month.

    I love fruit smoothies. Mango is one of my favorites, but they are hard to come by over here. I love your tropical version 🙂

  • Summer April 10, 2017, 11:46 am

    SO YUMMY! Need to make these for my husband and I in the morning!

  • colleen wool April 10, 2017, 12:53 pm

    The smoothie looks so delicious and easy to make. I cant wait to try it.

  • Megan April 10, 2017, 12:57 pm

    This looks good! Does the shredded coconut purée or does it still leave some texture! So simple and delicious looking though! I’d definitely add a touch of honey! Great idea to sweeten!

    • Rose April 10, 2017, 8:22 pm

      I use a regular blender, which does leave some shredded coconut texture. This might not be true with a high-end blender.

    Ugh, so sorry you’ve had to be on a restrictive diet for weeks – that’s brutal! I got my teeth cleaned by a brutal hygienist this month and was stuck with smoothies and yogurt for one day, and I was already depressed, hahah! I love tropical smoothies because you can sneak a vegetable in without noticing – been a big fan of these for breakfast lately!

  • Danielle April 11, 2017, 5:21 am

    So sorry to hear about the dental work! Hope you can chew again soon. This smoothie looks amazing, and just screams summer.

  • Lisa April 11, 2017, 7:02 am

    This sounds really good! I love making smoothies, but I almost always use milk. I’m interested to try it with coconut water – yum!
    So sorry about the dental work, though – hopefully it’s finished soon!

  • Hannah Green April 11, 2017, 3:50 pm

    This smoothie looks so delicious, Spring Summer drinks/smoothies are so refreshing and I love finding new ideas for them

  • Natasha April 11, 2017, 6:41 pm

    Looks tasty! I’ve put coconut water in smoothies before, but, unfortunately, I tend to stay away from shredded coconut. I like it, but it does not like me! Sometimes I give in and have it, anyway.
