Aloha Smoothie

While we were in Hawaii we stopped off at a stand on the side of the road for some ice cold coconuts. They were so refreshing, I wish I could enjoy them every day.


I may be back from the beach, but that doesn’t mean I have to act like it! In celebration of all things lovely and tropical, I’m enjoying coconut and pineapple to the max this week.


There’s no better way to feel beachy than a flavorful and frosty smoothie, am I right? Even Sampson agrees….


Just kick up your feet and close your eyes while you sip and you’re guaranteed to be in an aloha state-of-mind.

Aloha Smoothie

  • Heaping 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1.25 cups coconut water (or plain water)
  • Handful of fresh strawberries

Blend all ingredients until smooth, adding strawberries last. Throw in some greens, if desired (spinach, kale and romaine would all work great).


greens may alter the color, but not the taste!
