As a kid, non-alcoholic piña coladas were my favorite drinks whenever we went on vacation to the beach. I still love drinking piña colada (with or without alcohol) on hot summer days, or when I want to feel like I’m on vacation. This healthy version brings that wonderful feeling back, and it’s also amazing for my health. MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • If you want a thicker texture with more fiber, don’t strain the juice.
  • When choosing the pineapple, make sure it has a very sweet aroma. That way you will know it’s ripe.
  • The coconut meat needs to be fresh, not dried. You can buy a whole coconut and use the water and meat inside to make this smoothie. You can also buy bottled coconut water, and leave the fresh coconut meat out of the recipe.
