Coconut Smoothie Baby FoodPin

We’ve been going to a small, but fantastic, farmer’s market near our house on Saturdays in order to satisfy my husband’s recent obsession with tropical fruit. One of the vendors there sells pineapples, papayas, mangos and bananas that taste so fresh, you’d think you were on a tropical island. By mid-week, if I’ve cut up all of the fruit but there’s still some left in the fridge, we love making smoothies with it. Not only are smoothies nutritious and fun for kids of almost any age to help prepare with you, they’re also a great use of any fruit you have laying around that may be overripe and otherwise going to waste.

In these economically tough times, going on vacation may be hard, but whipping up a batch of these creamy smoothies can bring the vacation to you!

  1. If you have a little extra time, you can freeze the bananas first so when you blend it all up its a little thicker and creamier. it also makes it colder which when you think of smoothie you think of cold on a hot summer day

  2. Ooookay, so this was amazing! Admittedly my husband and I made this into an adult drink by adding coconut rum. We didn’t have plain greek yogurt so I added vanilla, and we didn’t have pineapple but we had frozen mango. I will be making this again for sure!
