Notes

Pina Colada Green Smoothie Tips

  • The frozen pineapple determines how frosty this smoothie is! Make sure it is frozen to make it cool and refreshing! If your pineapple is a little defrosted, you may need to add more pineapple to thicken the smoothie.
  • If you find that your smoothie is too thick and is not blending easily, gradually add a touch more coconut milk to help it along.
  • Light coconut milk (canned) gives it a delicious, coconut flavor. See notes on coconut milk below.

What kind of coconut milk should I use?

  • Canned light coconut milk is perfect in this smoothie, making it rich and full of coconut flavor.
  • My preference is light coconut milk, but if you have a can of full-fat coconut milk on hand, simply make your own light coconut milk by mixing 1 part full-fat coconut milk or two-parts water (or less, if you want a decadent smoothie).

Can I add alcohol to this pina colada smoothie?

  • For a grown-up twist, feel free to give it a shot of coconut rum! You can also use your favorite light- or dark-rum.

What other greens can I use in this green smoothie recipe?

  • I love using spinach because it adds natural sweetness to the smoothie.
  • Kale is also a wonderful choice, adding extra nutrients to the smoothie.
