Pina Colada Green Smoothie


Is there anything better on a hot day than sipping on a cold, fruity drink? It’s even better if you’re lucky enough to be sitting on the beach…sigh. But boy, we love this Piña Colada green smoothie beach or no beach!

Pina Colada Green Smoothie | SimpleGreenSmoothies.com

Pineapple and coconut just go together like peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, or macaroni and cheese. We love blending up rich, creamy coconut milk and sweet pineapple with iron-rich spinach for a healthy breakfast (or treat).

Rich in bromelain, pineapple is rich in bromelain, is great for preventing bloating. It’s also very rich in vitamin C, which give the immune system a healthy boost. The vitamin C also helps the body absorb the iron in the spinach.

Coconut milk contains healthy fats that will help you feel satisfied and keep you full longer, and make this extra creamy and rich. We like blending coconut flakes, too, but they are optional in this recipe. Add them in for more coconutty flavor, fiber, and healthy fat. (By the way, did you know including a healthy fat in your green smoothies helps you absorb the other vitamins and nutrients too? #rawesome)

    Hi
    Im lucky enough to be able to use fresh green coconuts in your recipes, Im wondering whether I should use the coconut flesh too – do you think it would up the calorie/fat content too much? Im sure it would taste great : )

    Hi Ade,

    You can definitely add coconut flesh in place of coconut flakes in this recipe. Our recipes are here to inspire you, so please don’t hesitate to change things up!

    Worried about the fat content? Though coconut milk is high in protein, fiber, and other micronutrients, it is also high in calories and fat. For this reason we recommend saving recipes with coconut milk like this one for special indulgences–maybe for date night desserts. This milk does help to protect your heart, but it will cost you in other areas if used on a regular basis.

    Hope this helps!

    I just bought a proper blender – no more of that fiddly Nutribullet crap – and made this for breakfast this a.m. Sooooo good.
    Didnt have coco milk so used coco water in place of both milk & water, added a 1/4 C. plain yogurt, a few more coco flakes, & the zest of a lime.
    May have to whip up a batch tonight, but add a splash of rum in lieu of the spinach:) Yummm.
    Thanks for the recipe!

    Are these smoothies good to use as a meal replacement? Or in addition to your regular diet
