piña colada smoothie

After seeing a tweet from Luna & Larry’s about putting coconut ice cream in a smoothie, I knew something similar had to be done in my kitchen. And soon.

Piña coladas instantly came to mind – anything to bring up memories of beaches, sand and cocktails in the morning in the midst of the winter sounds heavenly and I can almost smell the salt water. This is definitely a healthier version, without the sugar, calories and of course the rum (which makes for not such a fun and relaxing drink) but one I can feel good about drinking at 10 AM on a Sunday.

Piña Colada Smoothie:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen pineapple
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut ice cream
  • 2 drops Vanilla Cream stevia

  10. I am not a smoothie person at all, so imagine my surprise that I’ve actually had two this week! I have no idea what is going on, but I’ve been craving them like crazy after my runs this week. I’ve been going for the greens and frozen berries, but I can definitely see this one fitting in. Yum.
