How to Make Creamy Dreamy Tropical Smoothie


  1. Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add coconut flakes in a single layer, and heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until it just starts to turn golden. Watch it carefully, as it can burn quickly. Set toasted coconut aside to cool.
  2. Place pineapple, yogurt, coconut milk, ice and honey in a blender. Process on high speed for 60 seconds or until smooth and blended to desired consistency.
  3. Pour into 4 glasses. Garnish each with a teaspoon toasted coconut. Add a straw to each glass, and serve immediately.
