I am declaring today Smoothie Sunday.

Strawberry-Banana Colada Smoothie | halfbakedharvest.com

Because honestly smoothies are the laziest drink/snack/breakfast around.

Truthfully, I never thought I would post a smoothie recipe because when I make smoothies, there is no recipe. Throw in a little of this, a little of that, oh and maybe some of that, in the blender and blend, blend, blend.

But since my cousin Maggie requested a new smoothie recipe I wrote one down with pencil and paper.

I figured I could come up with something good seeing as all I want to consume these days is mass amounts of fruit. I am putting them in every single dish I make.

Prepare yourselves.

And maybe stock up on pineapple, all berries, nectarines, peaches, mangos and melons.

Oh and avocados.

Of course.

So this smoothie is like a pina colada loaded with tons and tons of strawberries, a frozen banana for creaminess and sweet coconut to tie it all together. For some protein I added some greek yogurt, but the second time I made them I added vanilla coconut ice cream.

Ah huh, vanilla coconut ice cream.

Amazing.

Strawberry-Banana Colada Smoothie | halfbakedharvest.comBoth are good and if I was making this for breakfast I would probably go with the greek yogurt, but any other time of the day I would choose the coconut ice cream.

Then it is kind of closer to a milkshake.

Which is just as awesome since it is a pretty healthy milkshake and in my brain totally qualifies as a perfectly wholesome afternoon snack. Okay, fine maybe I made it for breakfast too.

Oh and I even added some spinach to this guy.

Granted not a whole lot since I did not want some gross murky looking smoothie, but hey a little spinach is still spinach. You can add more than I did if you want, but be warned the color will not stay pink.

Or you can leave the spinach out all together, but I promise, you can’t taste it.

    1. Hi Kristi, I use the coconut cream from a can of coconut milk that has not been mixed up yet. Usually the coconut cream sits on the bottom of the can and the separated coconut water sits on top of the cream.
      For this recipe though I used the coconut milk. Meaning I mixed the coconut cream in the bottom of the can with the separated coconut water on top.
      Hope this helps you~
