During the summer we’re either drinking this or the Raw Cacao Smoothie. I first had something like this with coconut ice cream, and have made that at home, but the bananas and dates are a fine stand in, better even I think. If you freeze ripe bananas, those are great to add in addition to plenty of ice. This drink is mightily refreshing and spirit lifting and I think we probably make it 3-7 times a week its so darn good and easy.
Pineapple Mint Coconut Smoothie with Dates + Nutmeg
1/2 pineapple, peeled and cut into large chunks
1 small handful of mint
1/2 can full fat coconut milk
1/2 can coconut juice
3-4 big handfuls of ice cubes
Blend all of the ingredients together except the dates, nutmeg and a few mint leaves. Add the dates, and just blend so the dates are still a bit chunky. Pour into a nice cup, spoon a little coconut milk on top, sprinkle with nutmeg and add a few mint leaves.
