This Pina Colada Smoothie is a tasty, low-calorie drink. It is only 180 calories per 2 cup serving, but it tastes like dessert! It 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. 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 😉 ).
