Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 1/3 cup low fat coconut Greek yogurt
  • 1/2-1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (or more as needed)
  • 4 shortbread cookies, crushed

Instructions

  1. Before you begin, place milkshake cups in the freezer while you make the smoothies.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 

  3. Spread coconut on a small baking sheet. Toast until golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Set aside. 

  4. Add frozen pineapple and mango to the bottom of the blender. Spoon yogurt and brown sugar on top. Pour in coconut milk. Pulse to start blending the smoothie. Switch to liquify and blend until smooth. If needed, add a little bit more coconut milk a splash at a time to reach desired consistency. 

  5. Pour into cups. Sprinkle with toasted coconut and crushed shortbread cookies.
