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!

HEALTH: WHAT I EAT IN A DAY

EN:

I have decided to take you with me on my fitness journey and show you what I eat in a day!

If you have read this article and if you have been following my Instagram stories, then you know that I have started working out again. Also, what I eat in a day has changed a lot.

I am planning to change my approach a bit, as far as my articles are concerned. I have noticed that up until now I would only give you certain pieces of advice, I would serve you directly the lesson, completely omitting the whole story behind them. Thus I have decided to become a lot more transparent with you guys, and share with you my whole journey, with both its ups and downs.

Therefore, I am super pleased to announce a new Category on the blog: HEALTH. Continue reading
