Can the simple taste of certain ingredients just remind of or take you away to a favorite place? For me, its the flavors in Pina Colada. I enjoyed many while honeymooning years ago in St.Lucia! Of course as a smoothie these have no alcohol in them so you can enjoy the flavors anytime you want.
I love the creaminess that coconut milk provides especially since real cream bothers my stomach. I don’t feel I’m missing out at all when enjoying this smoothie without any dairy in sight!
Creamy, dreamy, deliciousness! Topped here with some unsweetened shredded coconut flakes. You can close your eyes, take a sip and pretend you are on some exotic island!
Typical Pina Colada smoothies using regular coconut milk will yield about 24 grams of fat and almost 300 calories.
For only 146 calories………yes……. you can have this daily if you like! 🙂
