No time for breakfast? Make a smoothie! I love this combination of bananas and pineapple to create this Pina Banana Colada Smoothie –a little taste of the tropics to start my morning.
Pina Banana Colada Smoothie
I love making a quick and healthy smoothie when I have to bring my breakfast to go. Some other favorites are Chia Watermelon Fresca, Summer Mango Stone Fruit Smoothie and Bali Banana Date Smoothie.
Pineapples are rich in enzymes, which is great for your digestive system. It’s also an excellent source of vitamin C. I like to throw in some chia seeds, but it’s completely optional. Along with bananas, this smoothie is high in fiber, vitamins and a perfect start to your day!

I think I know what I'm gonna have tomorrow for breakfast!!
It seems like easy to make.
I ended up using 8 oz of Silk almond coconut blend and added a scoop of Vega Tropical Tango protein powder and it was yummy.
Adding this to my must-try list!
Where can I find the chia seeds?
Yummy!! Perfect for the hot summer days!! Thanks for the recipe!!
This smoothie looks super refreshing and perfect for these hot summer days! Can't wait to try it!
Love your smoothies!! We poured the almond milk into ice cube trays, then added two cubes for thick, cold smoothies-yum!
I tried this today. It was so good. I left out the shedded coconut though.
I also added spinach
This looks so good!
Thank you so much Gina! I love your recipes! I can't wait to try this one!
I can´t get almond coconut milk here – can I use plain almond milk? and if I use a frozen banana and frozen pineapple I can lose the ice? I am gonna try tomorrow and see what happens anyway – if anyone has tried it first please let me know??!!
I think any milk would work. When I make smoothies, I usually use frozen fruit and have not needed to add ice. It all depends how thick you like your smoothie
Great smoothie for breakfast 🙂
Oh, this looks soooo good. I just found out I am allergic to apples, bananas,pineapple,plums,lemons,and milk. All my favorite fruits. I have been eating a lot of peaches and drinking a lot of soy yogurt, coconut milk and almond milk. Also olives, lettuce, oysters, and some of the gums used to thicken foods. This is an interesting journey that I am on at 61. At least I now know why I was breaking out in hives. Have a wonderful day, Linda.
Sounds like the perfect way to start the day! YUMMMMM!
I would like to have more than 2g of protein. Any suggestions for pumping that up to a good amount (12+gs) so that this could be used for a meal. 2gs is not enough for breakfast especially after exercising.
It won't add 12+, but I add a serving of oatmeal to this for breakfast. It is still delish, and brings the protein up to around 8gs.
If you don't mind adding 100 calories, you can add 2 scoops of EAS Lean 15 protein powder (vanilla cream flavored). It contains 15g of protein, 5g fiber. I usually only add 1 scoop. It's delicious with smoothies.
This recipe looks great, Gina! I love piña coladas, and being on WW makes it difficult to have my recipe using Coco Lopez & Pineapple juice (I don't even care about the rum!). However, I will use Silk Almond Coconut blend WITHOUT carrageenan. I hate that Blue Diamond still uses this ingredient, regardless of which type. It's obviously unnecessary, since Silk products taste amazing. OK – rant over. Thanks again for all your hard work!!
I know this is a sponsored post but are there any recommendations if you have a severe nut (almond) allergy? Looks delish!
Maybe just try it with coconut milk? I bet it would still taste good!
I think any milk would work – cow's milk, coconut milk, etc
Try using a NUTRIBULLET. It literally pulverizes fruits and veggies in seconds. It would work really well for this smoothie. I love mine and use it every day.
Thanks for this delectable recipe.
Hey!! Does the Calorie count include the chai seeds?
I don't think so. The Chia seeds would add another 60 calories (per 1 T).
This just sounds perfect! I think I need to whip one up, close my eyes, and pretend I'm still on vacation!
Yum, these flavors go so well together!
Where do you buy coconut almond milk?
walmart sells it
With marathon training in the Florida heat I've been craving coconut water like mad. I didn't even know they made almond coconut milk! #LifeChanger
I have a reay good blender, I would end a few times.
When I saw this, I thought "Oh no you didn't!" and was super excited to see another amazing smoothie recipe! I have made piña colada granola before which worked a treat, but this would be the perfect quick fix in the morning, delicious! I wish you a fantastic day Gina 🙂 x
I love pina coladas, but I've found that my food processor has a very hard time demolishing pineapple enough. I keep ending up with fiberous chunks.
Do yourself a favor and buy a Nutribullet. Best small appliance on earth. I use mine every day.
I've made this before and it's delicious! Like an instant vacation!
This looks to die for! Thanks for the recipe, will have to try it!
