About the Strawberry Piña Colada Smoothie

Can it really be classified as a smoothie? This fruit smoothie tastes like the best Strawberry Piña Colada milkshake you’ve ever had–if that exists. Besides the Blueberry Muffin Smoothie, this was the most popular one with my kids. Heck, you may even want to spike it with a little rum at your next party or brunch (adults only, course!). Virgin or spiked, it’s DELICIOUS and such a treat!!!

I recommend using full-fat coconut milk from the can, if you want the best milkshake experience. But, coconut water or your favorite milk will work as a substitute. Just can’t promise it will blow. you. away. like that full-fat coconut milk will. The good news: the fat in coconut has some positive health benefits for you, too.

  • Coconut milk (preferably full-fat in the can!)
  • Banana

How to Make Freezer Smoothie Packs

Freezer smoothie packs have become the norm around our houses these days. That’s because, just like with our healthy freezer meal recipes, it makes so much sense to use our time and resources wisely by prepping these smoothies in bulk.

Having a pack of the frozen solid ingredients on hand means all you have to do is pour the liquid in your blender, dump in the bag, and blend. You’ll be walking out the door with a tasty, nutritious breakfast in just minutes! Take a look at how easy it is…

If you’re concerned about reducing the use of plastic bags like we are, we can recommend these high-quality silicone storage bags. They are the perfect size for smoothie packs but also work well for any food storage. We’ve found that they are easy to clean (even dishwasher safe!), easy to use, and leak-proof. Silicone is one of the safest materials to store and even bake our food in, as it does not leach any chemicals into the food.

Ready to start your day with a party in your mouth? Grab your blender and let’s get started on the Strawberry Piña Colada Smoothie…

Description

Frozen strawberries, pineapple, and banana combine with coconut milk and almonds to create the most luxurious, healthy smoothie you’ve ever had! Prep ahead and make it into freezer smoothie packs to have on hand any time. This easy Strawberry Piña Colada fruit smoothie has party time written all over it. 


Ingredients

  • 11 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk (recommended: full-fat version in the can; or substitute coconut water or your favorite milk)
  • ½ banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • 2 tablespoons sliced or slivered raw almonds (sub: raw cashews or macadamia nuts)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

Instructions

Make It Now:

1. Start by adding 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (see notes above in ingredient list) to a high-powered blender. Then, add all the other ingredients.

2. Blend until smooth. You may need to stop and stir/shake the blender or add up to 1/2 cup more of coconut milk, as needed, to make sure it gets smooth.

Make Freezer Smoothie Packs for Later:

1. Layer ingredients in small freezer bags (or reusable silicone bags) in this order:

  • ½ banana, in slices or chunks
  • 1/2 cup whole strawberries, stemmed
  • 1/2 cup pineapple chunks
  • 2 tablespoons sliced or slivered raw almonds (sub: raw cashews or macadamia nuts)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)

2. Seal tightly, squeezing out the air, and freeze for up to 3 months.

3. To Blend: Start by adding 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (see notes above in ingredient list) into a high-powered blender first. Break up the ingredients in the bag by hitting it on the counter or crunching it with your hands. Dump the ingredients from the bag in and follow blending instructions above.


Notes

  • You’ll have some leftover coconut milk if using the canned version. Either store it in the fridge for another smoothie that week or try it as a creamer in your coffee! It’s delicious.
  • Feel free to add a little rum to this smoothie if making it for a party or fun drink on vacation!
