Pineapple Coconut Green Smoothie

There’s nothing more refreshing on a beautiful Summer day than something cold and hydrating — I think we can all agree on that! Today I made up a smoothie (and a recipe along with it!) before I headed to a quick shift at work. I’ve been wanting to incorporate pineapple into my smoothies for some time now. I know you’re probably thinking I’m crazy for not having done that yet, but hey, at least I’m finally trying it now! Always better late than never, right?!
I saw a recipe on Pinterest the other day for a pineapple coconut smoothie and it inspired me to create my own! Also, I got a great deal on tofu at Costco this past weekend, so I decided to incorporate that in my smoothie as well! 🙂

Ingredients:
•1 banana, frozen
•1/4 piece Firm Tofu
•1 cup Fresh Pineapple

•1/2 tsp Maca Powder (optional — it simply gives an extra health boost!)
•Handful of Ice Cubes
•Cinnamon, to taste

Directions:
1. Add banana, tofu, and pineapple to blender or food processor (I use a Ninja).
2. Add coconut water and coconut shreds. Blend.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend one last time.
4. Top with toppings of choice! I simply topped mine with more unsweetened shredded coconut and goji berries. 🙂
