Last week I discovered you all like Piña Coladas. Several people have already made the Lightened Up Piña Colada, and I am happy to report that "lightened up" did not mean missing anything. So far so good - people are liking this light version.
Since we really shouldn't begin the day saying "it's five o clock somewhere", I have a solution for the early cravings of those creamy cool and sweet tropical flavors. Unless you're on vacation. Then go for the real thing.
Piña Colada breakfast smoothie
dairy, soy and gluten free, vegan, no added sugar
11.2 ounces coconut water (small container)
⅓ cup coconut milk
½ fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and cubed
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
handful ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender, serve with pineapple garnish and enjoy!
As you can see, I really do have a fresh pineapple around at all times in the summer. I've been having these each morning since Sunday. Today's has spinach as well - yum!
