Flavorful Pina Colada Smoothie recipe!

Ingredients

  • 6 large ice cubes
  • 6 oz vanilla flavored greek yogurt
  • 1 cup pineapple (frozen, fresh or canned)
  • 1 large banana
  • ¾ teaspoon rum flavoring
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened coconut milk
  • toasted coconut and cherries for garnish, optional
  • protein powder, optional

Instructions

  1. In a large blender, combine ice, yogurt, pineapple, banana, rum flavoring and coconut milk. Blend until creamy! (add protein powder and blend some more, if desired)
  2. Pour into a large glass (or two small) and top with toasted coconut and a cherry. ENJOY

Notes

  • To toast coconut, spread shredded coconut on baking sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 5-7 minutes, until lightly browned. Stir once during baking. Cool.
  • I freeze my bananas once they have ripened. This adds to a thicker, creamier smoothie! If using frozen pineapple and a frozen banana, you may need to add extra milk. If using fresh pineapple and fresh banana you may need more ice. Adjust as needed for desired consistency.

Comments & Reviews

  1. I’ve been using my Fitbit this month too. It’s fun! And I do weird things to get my number of steps up (like walking in circles around the island in my kitchen while I’m cooking!). This smoothie looks great. Vacation in a glass!

  2. I love coconut year round! I’ll definitely be adding this flavor into my smoothie rotation! & I know how frustrating it is when your steps aren’t tracked!

  3. Let’s make January the official coconut month! I love that idea. And oh my goodness I would be so sad if my fitbit didn’t record. I might even cry or throw something. 🙂 But you did and you should be proud!! I need to get back out there again and work out. But I just want to bake cookies all day long. This smoothie would be perfect for my post workout. I need to make it asap! Pinned. Thanks Aimee!!
