This dairy free Pina Colada Smoothie is full of pineapple, coconut milk and mango. So smooth and creamy and perfect for breakfast, too!
Ingredients
  • ½ of a frozen banana, peeled and sliced
  • 2 C frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1 C frozen mango chunks
  • 1½ C unsweetened coconut milk (full fat)
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 C ice cubes
  • Cherry for garnish, if desired
Instructions
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender. Pulsate a few times to break up the ingredients and then blend on medium for 1 minute or until smooth.
  2. Pour even amounts into two glasses and garnish with a cherry, if desired.
Notes
I used full fat coconut milk (the kind in a can) in my recipe. It's extremely creamy and that's what I was going for with this smoothie. You can use the low fat coconut milk that comes in a carton to cut back on calories (about 45 calories per cup versus 420 calories per cup for full fat) but I cannot guarantee that it will turn out the way that my smoothie turned out.

The smoothie is very filling - I did not feel the urge to eat anything fro 3-4 hours after I drank one of the smoothies.
