Tropical-Blend Smoothie


The best smoothies are made with very ripe fruit. Mango, pineapple and banana team up with light coconut milk in this one.

1 very ripe banana, sliced
1 cup diced pitted peeled fresh mango (from about 1 small)
1 cup diced peeled fresh pineapple
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1/2 cup canned light unsweetened coconut milk
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

Arrange banana, mango and pineapple in single layer on baking sheet. Cover and freeze until fruit is frozen solid, about 2 hours.

Combine pineapple juice, coconut milk and lime juice in blender. Add frozen fruit. Blend until mixture is thick and smooth. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
