Servings 1



  • 1 cup light coconut milk from a can
  • ½ ripe banana, preferably frozen
  • ½ cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1½-1 teaspoon spirulina powder
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt


  • In an upright blender, combine the light coconut milk, banana, pineapple, spirulina, vanilla, and sea salt. Blend for a full minute or until completely smooth.


  • You could use chlorophyll, powdered wheatgrass, or any greens powder blend that you like in place of the spirulina.
  • I've made this with light coconut milk, but you could also substitute a half and half mixture of full fat coconut milk and filtered water for the same texture/flavour.
