Pineapple and coconuts go together like peaches and cream. Easily one of my favorite flavor combinations. The frozen bananas add a beautiful creaminess to this delicious smoothie.
I haven’t seen or been on a beach in years, so if you’re like me, this smoothie will remind you of lounging on the beach, toes in the sand, waves crashing…even if it’s still snowing outside (geez, it’s April)! When was the last time you were on a beach?
Morning Pina Colada Smoothie
1 1/2 Cup frozen Pineapple, diced
1 small frozen Banana, sliced
1/2 Cup Coconut Cream (or use Coconut Milk if you want to keep the calories down – you will lose a little bit of that coconut intensity – still delicious, though!)
1/2 Cup Coconut Water
Shaved Unsweetened Coconut, to garnish
Hemp hearts, to garnish
Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth. Serve in a bowl or a tall glass. Garnish with shaved Coconut and Hemp hearts.
