Piña Colada Smoothie {healthy}

Need some sunshine in your day? This Piña Colada Smoothie will do the trick.  It’s healthy too, well, minus the whip cream you see in the picture. I only used the whip cream for the styled photo, I promise I took it all off when I was done, ahem, guilty look on my face.

I like to call this breakfast drink, Sunshine Smoothie, because its bright yellow, the pineapple burst with flavor in my mouth and it’s guilt-free. I also love the smell of fresh pineapple in my kitchen.

The great thing about this smoothie is you can enjoy it any time of the day for breakfast, a mid afternoon snack or even for dessert without all the calories.

Sunshine Smoothie: Piña Colada

  • 2 cup fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons honey (it’s already naturally sweet but if you need more sugar add honey)
  • 8 med sized spinach leaves (optional)


1. Blend it all up and voila it’s done.

My pineapple was super sweet so it didn’t really need any sugar/honey added.  If you do use whip cream you definitely won’t need any sugar added.
