  1. Where are you getting your nutritional data from? Your 1 serving at 190 cal is so far off! This smoothie is 510 calories and that’s with non-fat and low fat options. Basically almost half my day’s calories! Very misleading.

    1 c pineapple = 83 cal
    1 kiwi = 42 cal
    2T (10 g) unsw coconut = 66 cal
    6 almonds = 42 cal
    8 oz NF Greek yogurt = 150 cal
    6 oz Lite coconut milk = 135 cal
    ______________________________
    TOTAL CALORIES = 510

    • Yes, looking at it, 190 calories for one serving was definitely off on this one. This recipe really should have stated 2 servings, or if this recipe were made in the small cup with much less of each ingredient, it would probably come out closer to the 200 calorie range. Anyway, I edited the recipe for now to state 2 servings. Nutritional data comes from a variety of sources, depending on the author (the site accepts reader recipes and also has several different writers, all with nutritional backgrounds). The online calculators used can give differing and conflicting results, and I have seen some wide variations. Because of problems with that, I have been considering ceasing to provide nutritional data for individual recipes and instead perhaps just provide some sidebar links to various calculators for readers to use when they wish to calculate that information.

    • One other note. You could lighten this one up a lot if you want by cutting the coconut milk and replacing it with water. You would still get a nice chunk of protein from the nuts and and yogurt to help keep you full. You could also cut the coconut in half and still have a coconut taste to the smoothie. It can be hard to keep a smoothie real low calorie when it uses anything but water for the liquid. But I think they taste much better when something other than water is used.

  2. Can you use coconut oil in this recipe?
