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.
Yield:One (16-ounce) smoothie
Prep:5 minutesCook:0 minutesTotal:5 minutes
1 – 1 1/2cups unsweetened coconut milk (recommended: full-fat version in the can; or substitute coconut water or your favorite milk)
1/2cup frozen strawberries
1/2cup frozen pineapple chunks
2 tablespoons sliced or slivered raw almonds (sub: raw cashews or macadamia nuts)
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.
If you’d like to add in more protein, feel free to add in a sugar-free, unflavored protein powder or collagen powder. I like Vital Protein Collagen Peptides. You may need to add a little more liquid.
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!
Don’t be afraid to toss the whole fresh strawberry in. The leaves from the strawberry actually add some nutrition!
