A sweet, tropical smoothie that’s perfectly creamy and flavorful. Indulge in the flavors of summer anytime of the year with this easy, 5-minute strawberry piña colada smoothie!
In case you were wondering—yes, this is the best smoothie ever.
Usually it takes me a couple of tries to find the secret combo to the most simplistic yet most flavorful smoothie.
That’s why I was so darn surprised when I blended this baby up and the first sip was love in my belly. Because I did A LOT of things differently with this smoothie than I’ve ever done before.
I have never *loved* smoothies to the point where I would make them everyday if I had an unlimited supply of ingredients. Therefore I don’t make smoothies everyday. Heck, I hardly make smoothies every week!
But, holy moly you guys. This. Smoothie. I would make it every day if I could. Once, you take a sip, you’ll understand.
Oh yeah, not only is this smoothie really stinkin’ delicious, it’s also super easy to make. Like, so easy my 11-year-old sister could make it. All you gotta do is throw all of the ingredients into your blender and blend until smooth.
Like I said. REALLY EASY.
So let’s talk ingredients.
Ice, a banana, frozen strawberries, pineapple chunks, a can of coconut milk, and a little bit of vanilla extract.
I didn’t have any frozen bananas in the freezer (face palm), so instead of waiting to make this smoothie I just tossed in a fresh ripe banana and about 8 ice cubes.
Also, those strawberries are ones that I picked last summer, froze, and forgot about. I’m glad that finally got put to good use.
Whoever invented pina coladas deserves a Nobel Prize because I have come to the conclusion that it is the BEST combo of ingredients since peanut butter and chocolate.
It was all I could do to keep my sister from drinking ALL of it. I mean, come on. Best smoothie ever and my sister’s hogging it. Ugh.
I’m pretty sure this recipe was born out of my coconut obsession. Yes, I do have 8 cans of coconut milk in my refrigerator,#thankyouverymuch.
I’m sure you remember Monday’s Ultimate Coconut French Toast. Who could forget?
Gah, be still my heart.
You guys are definitely going to love this super-duper easy yet crazy delicious strawberry pina colada smoothie. It takes less than 5 minutes to blend up, is incredibly smooth and creamy, and will blow you away with its refreshing tropical taste.
