Happy Thurs-yay! It’s just after 9AM here, and I already feel like I need a cocktail. It’s 5:00 somewhere, right?! Thankfully I created this smoothie recipe which is based off the popular sugary pina colada, but this version is much healthier and does not include the alcohol. It’s the perfect breakfast treat or mid-afternoon tropical escape. I find coconut milk very refreshing and this smoothie really hits the spot with freshness sans the extra calories and refined sugar. I find as we get closer to spring I start craving those lighter flavors more and more. With our yard now covered in a fresh 15 inch layer of snow, I find his smoothie especially refreshing. Have I mentioned how refreshing it is? Added bonus it’s family friendly so everyone can enjoy this!
- Place ingredients, except shredded coconut, into a blender and blend together. Once combined, you can place toasted coconut right on top.
- To toast the coconut, place in a pan and heat stirring often. Watch coconut carefully because it will turn from toasted to burnt very quickly.
This is a Will Sing For Dessert original recipe.
