Tropical Inspiration — Healthy Piña Colada

This month’s smoothie is inspired by my recent trip to Hawaii — I was lucky enough to get to visit a friend in Oahu for 10 days, and I came back with coconuts on my mind.

After enjoying some pretty amazing tropical beverages out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, I decided to bring the islands home with me in the form of a healthy smoothie.

Here’s what I came up with!

Healthy Piña Colada

  • ½ cup frozen pineapple
  • ½ frozen banana
  • Mixed super greens (big fist full)
  • 2 tbs coconut crème
  • Coconut water to desired thickness (start with 1/4 cup and add more as you go until it’s as thick/thin as you like. If 1 cup still isn’t enough, switch over to water for the rest)
  • 2 Tbs collagen hydrolysate (optional if you want protein)
