Piña Colada Smoothie

If you like Piña Coladas and getting caught in the rain, you’re not alone. Hello! There was an entire song written by Rupert Holmes about the “Escape” this beverage provides. But not everyone is into the added sugar content that sometimes accompanies this sweet drink. Luckily, we have the answer for you.

This Piña Colada Smoothie doesn’t have a lot of processed sugar and it’s full of fruit! Coconut and pineapple is definitely one of my favorite combinations. It is so tangy and sweet and perfect for the warm weather we’ve been having lately. It just reminds me of sitting by the pool and soaking up sunshine! I am not a huge fan of drinking coconut water by itself, but when it is blended up in this smoothie I love it! It gives it the perfect consistency and taste.

Sip Your Snack

This smoothie is great for an afternoon snack — your kids will think they’re getting a real treat, but it is actually good for them! You definitely want to serve this smoothie immediately after you blend it. If you let it sit, it will separate. If you have leftovers that you want to blend later, store it in the fridge and then add a few more pineapple chunks and blend it up again. You can top it with pineapple chunks, or coconut (or whipped cream if you want it to be a little more of a treat).

  1. I am looking at these recipe and I am looking so forward to trying the pop cycles, but I am looking at these decilious smoothies and am thinking they would make great pops!

    1. Okay so this says low calories by a 1/2 cup of shredded coconut is 800calories!!!!!! That’s just one of the serving it calls for?!!! What???!!!

      1. Sorry, I’m not sure what brand of shredded coconut flakes you are using, but the ones we have are not that many calories. Maybe you can find a lighter version?
