Does anything say May more than a Strawberry Pineapple Coconut Piña Colada Smoothie? The weather is probably the best it’ll be all year – not too hot, and not too cold depending on where you live. It’s sunny outside, and even though it rains every now and then, it just keeps the place nice and cool. Wherever you are, sipping on a delicious, easy to whip of Strawberry Pineapple Coconut Piña Colada Smoothie sounds absolutely ideal. Now, let’s get into how easy this is to make so you can focus on your mini beach get away, okay?
Facts I love about May: I get to eat all the fruits, drink all the smoothies, and enjoy the weather. Sure, it rains a bit, but I like Piña Colada and getting caught in the rain. Do you…see where I’m going here? Good. Yup, I went there. When I had an idea in mind for a great smoothie recipe to share with you, I wanted to ensure I used an idea that was easy all year round, and still made you feel like you were having a mini party in your kitchen, office, studio, basically anywhere and everywhere you go. This Strawberry Pineapple Coconut Piña Colada Smoothie came to mind immediately.
What also came to mind was sweetening it with Born Sweet Zing™ Organic Stevia Sweetener – Zero Calories. When Born Sweet Zing asked to partner with me, I knew this was something I had to share with you. You’re always asking me about from the earth, organic sweeteners that you can use and I’m happy to say, that this is a perfect example right here. Born Sweet Zing has zero calories, so you’re not even adding anything but delicious flavour to your smoothie, and is USDA organic certified. It’s made from stevia leaves and dissolves so easily it’s crazy.
Thank God for no grittiness whatsoever in your smoothie. Yeah, we don’t want that.
So, why do I love this sweetener? I can use it in so many different uses. If you’re like me, coffee or tea is a daily part of your day. In my case, both of them are. I start my day with coffee, and end it with tea. I feel as if coffee energises me, but tea helps to calm me down for bed time. I usually take both of them black/unsweetened, but I decided to switch it up this time, as I usually do from time to time.
GREAT NEWS: it passed my personal test of not being overly sweet, but just enough. Also, if you’re the type of person who has their coffee/tea, or even want to take your smoothie on the go, Born Sweet Zing comes in super easy to pack single serve packets. Hello gym/yoga/handbag/pocket/literally-anything-you-want. Meet convenience.
So, let’s get back to this smoothie. I used pineapples, strawberries, coconut milk and Born Sweet Zing to make this beautiful Strawberry Pineapple Coconut Piña Colada Smoothie. When brainstorming a great smoothie idea, I mentioned strawberries to the Mr. after realising we had two giant bags in the freezer and he immediately jumped at the strawberry + pineapple + coconut combination. Sweet, tangy, tropical…it’s the perfect combo indeed. These are ingredients I always have in the house anyway, and it seemed like the perfect idea to combine them together. What you get is a creamy, smooth and downright divine smoothie in of course only a few minutes. It’s perfect for starting your day with your own mini party, right there in your kitchen. Uh, invite me please?
Blend the strawberries, pineapple, sweetener and coconut milk together in a blender until completely smooth. Pour into glasses and top with shredded coconut flakes and garnish glasses with pineapple chunks to serve. Enjoy!
This recipe is vegan and gluten free.
