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!
