Pina Colada Smoothie

I’m bringing the tropics to my house with this Pina Colada Smoothie recipe because I can’t do that just yet. Even if you’re at home, this smoothie gives you the feeling of lounging in the sun on a tropical island and provides a healthy breakfast alternative.

This smoothie is balanced and nourishing in addition to being delicious and refreshing. It contains protein from greek yogurt and hemp seeds, as well as vitamins and minerals from the banana and pineapple. Additionally, coconut milk AND coconut flakes are responsible for the dish’s creamy coconut flavor and texture. Yum!

This dish is inherently gluten-free and is simple to convert to veganism by omitting the yogurt. For the recipe and my suggested swaps, see below!

Tips for Making this Pina Colada Smoothie Recipe:

The following advice will help you make this smoothie recipe the finest smoothie ever. I’ll be grateful afterwards.

  • Tip 1: I frequently observe folks putting the liquid in their smoothies as the very last component. Blending will be more effective if the liquid is added first. I always add coconut milk to my blender first and used it in this recipe (from the carton, not the can).
  • Tip 2: Make Use of Frozen Fruit Although you may make this Pina Colada Smoothie recipe using fresh banana and pineapple, I suggest using frozen fruit for a richer, creamier texture. The smoothie will also become cooler as a result, which, in my opinion, is more refreshing!
  • Tip 3: Blend the smoothie with pina colada a little bit longer. Blend your smoothie for an extra minute or two if you have the time! It will be creamier and smoother the longer it combines. Since no one like fruit or nut bits in their smoothie!

Suggestions for Substitutions:

Here are some ideas you may try in place of particular components if you don’t have them or are trying to make substitutions:

For 1 cup plain Greek yogurt:

  • 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 servings of protein powder (I recommend unflavoured or vanilla)
  • 1 cup plain or vanilla non-dairy “Greek yogurt”

For 2 tbsp hemp seeds:

  • 2 tbsp flax seeds (ground or whole)
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds (ground or whole)

For 1/2 cup coconut milk:

  • 1/2 cup any other milk of choice + an additional 2 tbsp coconut flakes
