My Pina Colada Day Smoothie Recipe

One of my all time favourite cocktails is the humble Pina Colada. Whilst in it’s alcoholic form it is amazing; in it’s ‘virgin’ state it is still mighty fine! Whilst the 10th July is officially Pina Colada Day… in my world… every day is Pina Colada Day!

You might remember I put up a Virgin Pina Colada Smoothie recipe a few months ago. Click here to view it. But since then, I guess we have perfected it even more & made it even more coconuterly awesome! So, why not make a video out of it?! Here is the NEW recipe. I hope you get to give this beauty a go!

Pina Colada Day Smoothie!

I use a NutriBullet to make all my smoothies, but any blender that has the ability to crush ice and frozen banana will do. This recipe makes one large drink or 2 smaller ones.

Ingredients

  • 1 Medium Pineapple chopped up or use a pineapple corer like mine in the video!
  • 1/2 can of Coconut Milk
  • 1 Frozen Banana only a SMALL banana, maybe use a little less if it's a big one!
  • 3-4 Coconut Water Ice Cubes I used Vita Coco original - My Ice Cubes were large!
  • Tiny Squeeze of Lime optional - it definitely tastes perfect without too!

Instructions

  1. Pour your coconut water into ice cube trays and place in the freezer for a couple of hours or until frozen.
  2. Place your pineapple into your blender.
  3. Pour in half a can of coconut milk.
  4. Add your frozen banana.
  5. Add your coconut water ice cubes.
  6. (Optional) squeeze of lime
  7. Secure your blender lid & blend away till smooth.
  8. Pour into a glass & enjoy!
So there you have it, who would have thought that freezing Coconut Water would be so amazing. I will definitely be trying frozen coconut water out in other smoothie recipes from now on. I am a massive coconut water fan & it is a great way of getting the coconut flavour into a smoothie.

I will always have a mighty soft spot for a Pina Colada, it is one of the worlds greatest cocktails & to be able to enjoy it whenever I fancy in a non alcoholic form is amazing. It tastes too good to be just a few simple ingredients!
