If you're a fan of tropical flavors, you will love this pineapple coconut smoothie recipe. It incorporates both coconut milk and shredded coconut for a double layer of coconut flavor. If you want to limit your sugar intake, make sure you use unsweetened coconut milk, unsweetened shredded coconut and unsweetened frozen pineapple chunks for this recipe. Look for them at your local health food or natural foods supermarket, such as Whole Foods Market or Trader Joe's.
