A few years ago my grandparents took us out to eat, and got us (virgin) pina coladas. It was my first experience with a “fancy” drink, and it was the best pina colada I’ve had to this day. Pina Coladas are the perfect tropical paradise drinks, but it’s hard to imagine them being packed with nutrition.
And that’s what I wanted to create: a nutrition and protein dense smoothie. Now that the warm weather is back where I’m from, I’m drinking smoothies everyday. This recipe has definitely become a staple.
Here’s what you’ll need…
Plant based yogurt
Green ColadaCourse: beverages, breakfast, dessertDifficulty: Easy
1 cup of spinach
1 cup of kale
1 cup of pineapple
1 cup of coconut milk (more or less to desired consistency)
1/2 fresh avocado
8 oz plant based yogurt (I used soy for protein)
Optional toppings: Raspberries and hemp hearts
- Add spinach, kale, pineapple, coconut milk, avocado, and plant based yogurt to a large blender. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
- Top with raspeberries and hemp hearts. Enjoy!
