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! 🙂

THanks for the recipe. It would be more helpful if people posted what they thought about the drink AFTER making it, not just saying , "WOW.. looks great: and never hearing from them again. I will post again!
This was soooo yummy. My kids and I loved it. Thanks for sharing
I honeymooned in St. Lucia just last year. <3

We LOOOVE smoothies - and I really love it when I have everything on hand. Thanks for sharing. What a great idea to add the uns. shredded coconut to the top...I have that too. Will be enjoying this very soon. Thanks a million for sharing. The Caribbean is an awesome place to be! My brother owns a villa on St. Kitts and allowed me to spend a week there for my 60th bday - I took 4 girlfriends with me and we had a blast. Tons of non-alcoholic fun. =)

I LOVE coconut so I'm definitely going to try this. i've been adding unsweetned finely shredded coconut to all my baking lately, I've been on a coconut kick. But with the heat in CA lately this looks so refreshing. Thanks!
This looks really good but how many servings does it make? Thanks!
It was a total of 4 cups after I blended all mine together.
