Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use fresh fruit instead of frozen for this pineapple peach smoothie?
My preference for this particular smoothie recipe is to use both frozen pineapple and frozen peach. That will give you the thickest, most refreshing result. However, I did test this with fresh fruit as well. It really didn't turn out very appetizing using both fruits fresh. I use a high-powered Vitamix blender and this smoothie still somehow ended up with a weird texture, likely from the peel of the peach. However, it does turn out quite well if you use fresh pineapple combined with frozen peach. So my recommendation is to make sure that you at least have frozen peach!
Do I need to add hemp seeds?
I like to add either hemp seeds or chia seeds to most of my smoothies for some added protein and healthy fat. The hemp seeds in this recipe will not alter the taste of the smoothie, so you could leave them out if you don't have them. However, I highly recommend them for the added nutrition! Go ahead and add some chia seeds to your pineapple peach smoothie instead if you would like.
Is coconut butter the same as coconut oil?
No! This is an unfortunate mistake that I often see people making. A lot of people aren't familiar with what coconut butter is, so I totally understand the confusion! Coconut butter is simply blended coconut meat, so it is considered more of a whole food than coconut oil. Coconut oil is just fat extracted from coconuts making it much less healthy.
I prefer adding coconut butter to my smoothies as opposed to coconut flakes because the coconut butter is super smooth and won't leave you with any chunky flakes in your smoothie! I also like to use coconut butter on rice cakes or fruit. If you haven't tried it, you need to!
Coconut butter ( <-- affiliate link to get the one I use) is also known as coconut manna, so look out for that on labels. They are the same thing! You can probably find it at most stores in the section with other nut and seed butters, or you could order it online (see the link above).
