PINA COLADA SMOOTHIE RECIPE

BACK WITH A DELICIOUS PINA COLADA SMOOTHIE RECIPE!

Since so many of you guys appreciated my delicious Mojito smoothie recipe, I have decided to also share with you my new pina colada smoothie recipe!

I have always been a huge fan of pineapple. 😁 I love adding it to fruit salads or even eating it straight out of the can. Therefore, in order to keep things interesting, I have decided to also add it to my smoothies. This is how this recipe was born, and believe me guys, I was simply mind blown by how delicious it is!

Without further ado, here is the recipe for two (big) servings:

Ingredients:

  • 500ml Alpro coconut milk
  • 2 bananas
  • Dole pineapple, half a can
  • Chia seeds, about 1tbsp
  • Oats, 1&1/2 tbsp
  • Coconut shreds, 1 tbsp

Blend and enjoy!

You can adjust the texture to your liking. Add more bananas or oats in order to make it thicker, and more coconut milk or even filtered water to make it more fluid. As far as I am concerned, I prefer a thicker, creamier version. You can have it for desert or as a snack whenever you feel the need for something sweet.

I have specified the exact brands that I have used (Alpro and Dole) because I want to make sure that you will get the exact same taste if you try the recipe. I once used a different pineapple brand in one of my recipes, and the taste was noticeably different. But feel free to adjust the ingredients however you like. 🙂

Benefits:

  • Bananas, pineapple, chia seeds and oats are all high in antioxidants
  • The potassium in the banana helps keep your heart and brain healthy
  • The pineapple is known to help reduce bloating
  • Chia seeds contain Omega-3 fatty acids which help prevent heart disease
  • Oats help reduce cholesterol levels and blood sugar levels

Now, guys, you must try this pina colada smoothie recipe, it is just MIND BLOWING! If you love the pineapple flavor, then you will simply adore this exotic, creamy deliciousness. And don’t forget about all the added health benefits! Make sure to try it out, and if you do, send me your pictures and tag me at @alexandra_bulac! It would make me really excited to know that you are enjoying this healthy and delicious desert!

SAVE THE PLANET: REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES

GLASS REUSABLE WATER BOTTLES

I always use glass reusable water bottles instead of plastic bottles. I bought mine from a supermarket for around 10 RON (2,46 USD), and I have been using it for months! 🙂

 

Why should you use a glass water bottle?

SAVE THE PLANET: RECYCLE PLASTIC BOTTLES!

PLASTIC BOTTLES

It is preferable not to use them at all, but if you really don’t have a choice, you can at least make sure that you recycle plastic bottles after use.

Why? Because if you don’t, one of two things will happen:

  1. That piece of plastic that you just threw away may get into the ocean and be swallowed by a poor marine animal, who thus will suffer a painful and unnecessary death.
  2. You may unwillingly swallow pieces of it, possibly coming from the same source mentioned above.
