BANANA, COCONUT AND PASSION FRUIT SMOOTHIE

Banana, Coconut and Passion Fruit Smoothie

Lately I have been experimenting quite a bit with smoothies and shakes.  The truth is, I have been left with some ripe fruits that needed to be used and I wanted to make something light and healthy with it.  Besides, I always find that smoothies are a great way to get my fussy children to eat their fruits.  This particular smoothie only requires 4 ingredients… 2 of which I am sure you have in your pantry (honey and coconut cream).  I had some light coconut cream which worked great as it made the smoothie a little thicker than regular milk without the full calories of regular coconut cream.  It also kept the drink dairy free while adding a more tropical touch to it.  I had some frozen passion fruit pulp that I added without defrosting it (and this replaced ice for me!) and a very ripe banana.  I also added a little honey to make it more palatable for kids and it worked wonders.  My little ones gulped it down the minute I finished clicking the pictures!  To make it vegan, substitute the honey with maple or agave syrup to taste.  Enjoy!

    This sounds like a vacation in smoothie form! I’m obsessed with passion fruit so particularly love it. Would probably add a bit of rum to it, too! lol
