Fruity Tropical Smoothie

Fruity Tropical Smoothie

3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted [See: Using Coconut Oil in Beverages []]
1 tablespoon coconut flour
2 tablespoons honey [optional]
1 large banana, peeled and mashed
1 cup unsweetened pineapple chunks
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
2 kiwis, peeled and halved
2 large mangoes, peeled and cubed
10-12 ice cubes, optional

In small bowl combine coconut oil, coconut flour, honey and mashed banana. Mix well, incorporating oil thoroughly. Pour into blender and add all other ingredients, except ice cubes. Purée on high until well blended, and then blend for another 1 minute. If mixture is too thick for your taste, you may add some water, or add the ice and blend on high until ice is completely crushed.

This makes a nice afternoon snack on a hot day, or a good morning drink at breakfast time.
