The inspiration for this smoothie is the famous island cocktail ‘Pina Colada’. ‘Pina Colada’ is a Spanish word means ‘strained pineapple’. It is usually made by blending pineapple or pineapple juice, with cream of coconut and dark rum. I decided to skip the alcohol and add some yogurt and banana instead.
1 cup of fresh chopped pineapple
1 banana sliced
2 – 3 tbsp canned coconut milk
1 cup 2 % milk
1/2 cup of low fat vanilla yogurt
Add all the ingredients in a blender and whir! Enjoy.
Verdict: A smoothie tasted like it was made out of coconut milk, although I used only a few tbsp worth of it. The pineapple added a natural sweetness to it and so it did’nt need any sugar. The picture doesn’t do this smoothie justice, but it tasted wonderful. I Loved it.
