How to Make the Best Healthy Pina Colada Smoothie at Home
Are you looking for a quick and healthy meal? You should consider opting for a smoothie instead.
A smoothie is a perfect healthy snack or a quick meal on the go. Smoothies are filled with fruits and nutrients blended into a smooth liquid.
With smoothies, you can add protein powders and other supplements to make a nutritious meal that can be prepared in a short amount of time.
In today’s post, I will share with you my favorite pina colada smoothie recipe.
It’s super easy to make with just a few ingredients!
Making smoothies at home is also cost effective and you know exactly what is in it.
My daughters love this recipe and its perfect for those warmer months.
Involve your kids when you’re making these smoothies, I guarantee you will have a lot of fun.
Just a heads up, this recipe won’t be as healthy as my other smoothie recipes because of the fats and calories from the coconut cream.
I would recommend having this smoothie throughout your day instead of breakfast.
How to Make an Adult Pina Colada Smoothie with Alcohol
This recipe is alcohol-free just so the young ones can enjoy it as well.
However, you can add some coconut rum if you would like to give it a bit more coconut flavor.
If you’re not a fan of rum, you can try adding a bit of Vodka to the Pina Colada smoothie without compromising its taste.
You can make this smoothie recipe in two different ways.
You can use frozen pineapple or crushed pineapple depending on how thick or thin you want your smoothie to be.
If you decide to use frozen pineapple, I recommend adding some liquid just to thin it out a little.
If you use crushed pineapple then adding ice cube to the mix will help thicken the smoothie.
Tips on Making Pina Colada Smoothies at Home
When adding liquids, I have tested this recipe with milk, pineapple juice or coconut milk works really well.
If your blender is high powered, you don’t have to add much liquid to the mix. If your blender is low powered, adding a cup of liquid will help it mix better.
You don’t want to drink a smoothie with huge clumps of fruit unless you like it like that.
- 1 Cup pineapple chunks
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk
- 1 Banana
- 1/4 Cup ice cubes
- 2 Teaspoons Honey, (Optional)
- Toasted Coconut Flakes (Optional)
- Pineapple wedges for garnish
- Add the pineapple chunks, coconut milk, banana, honey and ice in the blender.
- Puree until you have a smooth consistency. Fewer chunks the better.
- Pour in a glass. Garnish with a pineapple and enjoy!
The Smoothie Diet
If you’re sick of being overweight, always lacking in energy and constantly worrying about your health, you should consider adding smoothies to your diet.
The Smoothie Diet is a great starting point and includes many delicious and easy-to-make smoothies to help with your weight loss, increasing your energy levels and improving your overall well being.
The Smoothie Diet program was created by Drew Sgoutas who has helped numerous people achieve real results.
He has designed this program to make it super easy to follow and suitable for people who have a busy schedule.
As a mother of three daughters, I know how crazy life can get when you’re juggling multiple things each day and sometimes forgetting to make healthy lifestyle choices.
One of the main differences I noticed when following Drew’s program was my cravings for sugars and sweets disappearing.
This has helped me manage my weight but also changing my eating habits.
Instead of snacking on junk food, I just take out my blender, add some fruit and I have a nutritious snack within a short amount of time.
It’s easy to reach for a chocolate bar or a bag of chips, but overall it’s not doing you any good.
Drew also shows his recommendations on the types of blenders you can buy, from top-of-the-line blenders to the cheaper models costing under $50.
You can view all the files in PDF format which you can download and take with you anywhere you go.
If you’re constantly traveling, you can access the entire program on your tablet or smartphone devices.
However, if you do like printed material, Drew has included a 20-page Quickstart guide which can be printed out just like a regular book.
After signing up, you will be given instant access to the program where you’re one step closer to achieving your health goals.
You will also be covered for a full 60 days after signing up and if you’re not happy with the program, Drew will give you a full refund. No questions asked!
