  • 6 pineapple slices + short bamboo skewers (I cut my longer ones to make them shorter)
  • ½ teaspoon of coconut oil for frying
  • 1 large banana, diced and frozen
  • 2/3 cup diced ripe pineapple
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina powder (I used Nature’s Ways SuperfoodsTropically Flavoured Spirulina)
  • 1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
  • couple of ice-cubes
  • coconut flakes, nuts, and seeds for garnish


  1. Pierce pineapple slices onto two skewers and pan fry in coconut oil over medium-high heat (about two minutes on each side, until golden grill marks appear). Set aside.
  2. Add the frozen banana, pineapple chunks, coconut cream, flavoured spirulina powder and lime juice to a blender or a food processor. If making as a drinking smoothie, add ¼ cup of water or coconut water to make it thinner, otherwise process until smooth and thick. Add the ice-cubes if you like it colder and thicker, and whiz a few more times until the ice is incorporated. Serve in glasses or bowls, as you wish. Garnish with some toasted coconut flakes or a handful of nuts and seeds and grilled pineapple skewers.
