Serves 2

175g Dole pineapple pieces (about a cup)
2 cm piece ginger, chopped (or use ¾ teaspoon minced ginger)
2 Bobby bananas, peeled and frozen
1/3 cup natural yoghurt
½ cup unsweetened drinking coconut milk
dash of vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend well, until smooth and creamy. Garnish with pineapple, mint and coconut threads, if desired.

For a thicker, more slushy-like version: freeze pineapple before adding to smoothie

For a green vege boost, add a handful of spinach or kale

For a lighter smoothie, use coconut water instead of coconut milk
