Pina Colada Smoothie

When you want a healthy smoothie but still want it to taste fun… there’s the healthy Pina Colada Smoothie made with wholesome ingredients!

Pina Colada Smoothies - Paleo & Dairy Free!

We enjoy a lot of smoothies in our home this time of the year.

They make for easy breakfasts on hectic days and are also a great way to sneak healthy ingredients into our diets.

This Pina colada Smoothie is a refreshing beverage to start the day with! It’s full of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals and natural sugars for energy.

It tastes great as is, but you can add extra ingredients like gelatin and egg yolks for added protein and nutrients! If you follow a vegan diet, simple leave out the gelatin and egg yolks.

    Why are there eggs in this recipe? Can I make with out or use chia/flax seed eggs. I have and allergy to eggs, but would love to try this recipe.

    This was quite good as a breakfast shake but too sweet for our taste. In the future I would eliminate the honey or at the very least reduce it.

    We don’t eat any fruit except blueberries and once in a while, cherries, because of the high fructose content. We have found it easier to lose the weight we needed to lose by eliminating pineapple and bananas especially.

    After reading your posts and links, you’ve turned me into a gelatin eater! I’ve got a big pot of chicken broth brewing on the stove right now. Thank you! After reading your link to Ray Peat, it opened up a whole lot of other questions though. He says that fish oils are bad for us!! I mean, really bad. He calls them another form of unsaturated fat. He also says that Omega 3s are bad as well and can cause cancer. This is quite confusing. I eat mostly coconut oil and butter and olive oil, but do take omega 3 supps. Do you have any info you can share with us to sort out this fat controversy about omega 3s and fish oils? Thanks tons!

      Hi Barb,

      I’m glad you are loving geltain! As far as omega 3’s go I do avoid them for the most part. I do take small amounts of fermented cod liver oil (with the butter oil). Other than that I avoid all PUFA’s.(including nuts, avocado and fatty fish).

    Yum! Pina colada anything has been my fav since I was a kid. I make mine similar, except I use a giant dollop of coconut oil and raw milk instead of the coconut milk. And sometimes I use maple syrup instead of honey. My kids love this one too.

    what is the difference between using gelatin or gelatin hydrolysate?

    • Tiffany @ The Coconut Mama June 3, 2013, 8:25 pm

      Regular gelatin will gel up. The hydrolysate doesn’t.

        So if I use the Bernard Jensen’s gelatin, will it work properly?

    Am I reading that egg chart correctly, just one provides you with 93.8% of your daily value of iron? Is that for an adult? How is that 93.8% if it is only .4 mg? I think I’m confused =/.

    This would be perfect for my breakfast smoothie! I still haven’t tried smoothies with raw egg yolks yet, but I am thinking this might be the best way to do it!

    Thanks for sharing!
