A tropical flavored smoothie

With one sip of this pina colada smoothie and you will think you are on a beach somewhere sipping an umbrella drink in the sun. This creamy tropical smoothie is filled with healthy fats that will fill you up. It's the perfect meal replacement.

Pina coladas are a summer icon. There’s nothing like sinking your toes in the sand while sipping on a frozen pineapple coconut slushie. If you are wanting a quick easy taste of the tropics, it’s not always the time to be sipping on a blended cocktail at 7am. That’s where this pina colada smoothie comes in handy. You can have a frothy tropical flavor smoothie without the alcohol, pineapple or pineapple juice.

This is one mocktail that you can enjoy anytime of day and we can call it a healthy meal because it is filled with healthy fats from the coconut milk to keep up energized and focus until the next meal. This pina colada smoothie recipe isn’t packed full of sugar like recipes that use pineapple, banana or add in additional sugars. Instead we use a sugar-free sweetener to sweeten our drink and we use a pina colada extract in place of the pineapple, banana or pineapple juice. The flavor is the same – just no sugar in our pineapple coconut smoothie!

How to make a pina colada smoothie

  1. Add ingredients to a blender – Add in ice, yogurt, canned coconut milk, pina colada extract and sugar free sweetener.
  2. Blend until smooth! Top with shredded coconut, a pineapple wedge and raspberries.

Substitutions

Depending on your lifestyle or taste preferences, you may want to swap out ingredients. Here are a few substitutions and suggestions.

  • Yogurt: If you are vegan or dairy free, use a plant based yogurt. Lower carb plant based yogurts are cashew yogurt, coconut yogurt or almond yogurt. This ingredient could also be omitted; however, it won’t be as creamy as the original smoothie recipe.
  • Nut milk: Coconut milk is a key ingredient to achieving that coconut flavor; however, you could substitute with another nut milk like almond milk or cashew milk if needed. Coconut cream will also work in this smoothie recipe if you wanted a thicker smoothie. Using coconut milk makes a thinner smoothie.
  • Fresh or frozen fruit: In place of the pina colada extract, you could add a small amount of fresh or frozen pineapple; however, this will increase the carbs and sugar. You could add some berries to this smoothie.

Storage information and meal prep

Smoothies are meant to be enjoyed right away as the texture will change the longer it sits out; however, you can do a few things to prep this smoothie the night before.

Consider adding all of your ingredients, except the ice, to the blender and placing it in your refrigerator the night before. The next morning, add the ice and blend!
