Tropical Smoothie Crunchy Soup

June 6, 2009

I’ve been creating this breakfast in my head for a long time –

Pineapple Coconut Smoothie Soup!

It started as a pineapple + coconut milk smoothie, but when I thought about drinking it through a straw, I changed it to a soup :) It overflowed the bowl!

  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 1 heaping cup fresh pineapple
  • 2/3 cup plain yogurt (I used Dannon non-fat)
  • 2/3 cup lite coconut milk
  • Handful of ice
  • Drizzle honey

Topped with about a third of a cup of my new love: Zoe’s Granola!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best. Granola. Ever. Because it’s not your traditional granola. It’s very dry and very crunchy – so it’s got the heft of a cereal. It’s also pretty low in calories for a granola (190 for 3/4 a cup, which only about 120 per half cup compared to 200+ for traditional granolas). Me gusta!!

I was surprised the granola actually stayed on the top pretty well, although some did sink to the bottom and were fun to find later on.

Served with a little Naturally more on a spoon – the smallest spoon I have to encourage slow eating

+ green tea

So many liquids! This really filled me up.

Pineapple and coconut–two of my favorite things–looks delicious! You may have said this previously, but where do you get your Zoe’s granola? I’d love to try it.


2 Kath June 6, 2009 at 8:54 am

I won this in a contest, but I have seen it at EarthFare. I bet Whole Foods has it too.

Scrumptious soup!! Such a refreshing flavor pairing.

Happy Saturday!!


4 Sarah (LovIN My Tummy) June 6, 2009 at 8:55 am

Mmm! I love granola on my smoothies! I totally would have saved it all (along with the PB) for my last bite.

I definitely need a “play” bullet on my todo list!

I’ve actually seen that granola at Big Lots a while back.. I should have gotten it!


6 Leah Z June 6, 2009 at 9:04 am

did you freeze your banana before making the smoothie? It looks completely delicious! I wish I wasn’t allergic to coconut…I’ll just have to try it with almond milk!


7 Mel June 6, 2009 at 9:06 am

Your soup sounds amazing! You definitely cannot beat pineapple and coconut.


8 Mara @ What's for Dinner? June 6, 2009 at 9:11 am

That soup sounds quite delicious, and like something I’d enjoy as a dessert! Have a fantastic day!


9 Emily (Healthy Fit Mama) June 6, 2009 at 9:13 am

That Zoe’s granola sounds good! I love granola but most of the varieties have a lot of fat and calories.


10 Amanda June 6, 2009 at 9:21 am

good idea with the small spoon! i eat too fast all the time. i’m working on slowing down!


11 Bec June 6, 2009 at 9:38 am

12 Foodie (Fab and Delicious Food) June 6, 2009 at 9:49 am

14 Peace and Peanutbutter June 6, 2009 at 10:09 am

Kath, that soup looks delicious! I love all the ingredients, especially the coconut.

I also did a review for Zoe’s on my blog – it’s hands down my FAVORITE GRANOLA….especially the Cinnamon Raisin! I’d recommend a yummy yogurt parfait :-)


15 Ada June 6, 2009 at 10:13 am

Wow! That is such a creative breakfast, I cannot wait to try something like that.


16 Lacey June 6, 2009 at 10:35 am

17 Caitlin June 6, 2009 at 10:45 am

23 Meghan@traveleatlove June 6, 2009 at 12:29 pm

That looks so refreshing!


24 Heather June 6, 2009 at 1:01 pm

What an awesome mix! And I love how you made it into a “soup” instead of sipping it like a smoothie! YUMMY! And that granola sounds fantastic. I wish I could find that around me!

Have a wonderful Saturday! :)


25 Stacey June 6, 2009 at 1:13 pm

Sounds like a pretty great Saturday agenda! Enjoy :)


26 Nhuy June 6, 2009 at 1:52 pm

The combo sounds delicious!!

Happy Saturday :)


27 Sky June 6, 2009 at 1:59 pm

Hey Kath!

That looks so delish!

I finished my short documentary on the Spirituality of Food! Take a look:


28 Kath June 6, 2009 at 2:21 pm

Leah Z,
Nope, banana was fresh.

Sky ,
Cool! Maybe I can eat there when I visit in July?



29 Rachel June 6, 2009 at 2:21 pm

That looks sooooo yummy! And I’m going to have to keep an eye out for that granola. I get so frustrated at the high-calorie counts of a lot of other brands.


30 Leah @ Simply Fabulous June 6, 2009 at 2:31 pm

Have fun with your friends tonight!!


31 Redeemedbyblood June 6, 2009 at 3:07 pm

dude, cool spoon!


32 Taylor June 6, 2009 at 4:08 pm

That is my newfound fave granola as well!! I got the sampler pack and only have 1 box left. Yummm


33 Kristine June 6, 2009 at 4:44 pm

Please tell me more about that spoon! I am in love. Where did you get it?


34 Joanne June 7, 2009 at 8:13 am

What a creative blend in that soup. You made it look really good and by the list of ingredients, it must taste fantastic.


35 Kath June 7, 2009 at 2:06 pm

Kristine ,
It is from my grandmother, probably passed down in the family, so I don’t know where it came from. I believe it’s an iced tea spoon because of the long handle.



36 sara.jane June 8, 2009 at 10:20 am

I’ll have to look for coconut milk. Never seen it before at the store. Thanks for the recipe!


37 Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now June 8, 2009 at 11:47 am

That spoon is so cute!
