5 Fruit Smoothie {Crazy Cooking Challenge}

7 Jun

Today brings back the Crazy Cooking Challenge and the item to make is fruit smoothies or shakes. Today is also a very special day in my personal life. Four years ago today, I married the man of my dreams. It’s hard to believe how fast these four years have gone and how much we have accomplished together. We became homeowners and parents. We went through an incredible amount of happy times and very few hardships. We grew up together and became the wife and husband we wanted and needed to be for each other. So this post is for you Joel. I love and cherish you more than you could ever know. Here are some of my favorite pictures from our big day and the honeymoon.

I wanted to find a way to tie the challenge in with my anniversary so I decided I would search for a tropical smoothie to bring us back to our honeymoon in the Virgin Islands. I ultimately decided on this one because of the coconut and pineapple. A lot of the drinks we enjoyed there included those two ingredients so I thought it was fitting.
5 Fruit Smoothie
I’m so glad I picked this recipe from Made With Pink because it was amazing and just what I was looking for in a smoothie. The coconut and pineapple really jumped out and screamed tropical. The addition of the berries and banana helped round it out and put it over the top. I absolutely love strawberries so I think it would be great with just the pineapple, coconut and lots of strawberries.

recipe from Made With Pink

15 blueberries, frozen
1/2 banana, frozen
10 raspberries, frozen
7 large pineapple chunks, frozen
5 strawberries, frozen
2 Tbsp shredded Coconut
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt (I used Greek vanilla yogurt)
1/3 cup pineapple juice
1. Dump everything into a blend and blend until no large chunks are left. If it’s too thick, add more pineapple juice. If it’s too thin, add more frozen fruit and blend.

    Happy Anniversary! We honeymooned in the Virgin Islands too, but about 12 years before you! This drink would definitely bring back the feeling of the islands. Love that it has shredded coconut in it!
