PINA COLADA SMOOTHIE

 SIMPLE & EFECTIVE SMOOTHIES

Hello you amazing person. I am super lazy in the kitchen in the mornings especially when i want a snack. I need to have easy staple recipes that I can whip up in a snap. Pina colada is good at anytime of the day. Personally i love this prettygirlsmoothie in the AM hours because it not only tastes fab, but it’s high in vitamin C (over 100% daily value), a great source of manganese and potassium, and is rich in the digestive enzyme bromelain which is found abundantly in pineapple. 

 INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup coconut milk 
  • 1 cup dice pineapples 
  • 1 banana                                     
  • 1 tbs shredded coconut 
  • 1 tbs chia seeds (if you prefer)

INSTRUCTIONS 

 Simply follow ingredients in order. Main liquid should be the added FIRST to any smoothie. It sets the consistency of prettygirlsoothies. Never put yogurt first. The yogurt will stay stuck to the bottom. Its always important to chop all fruits and vegetables before blending your prettygirlsmoothies. I recommend prepping all smoothies in advance (as soon as you get home from the store). TAKES 10-15 MINS MAX

    HEALTHY MILK ALTERNATIVES

    Switching up smoothie ingredients is as easy as putting milk in your cereal. 

    My milk preference is unsweetened vanilla almond or coconut milk. 

    Here are other gluten-free and vegan milk alternatives you can use:

    • vanilla oak milk or plain oak milk 
    • coconut milk
    • flax milk made from flax seeds
