Piña Colada Green Monster Smoothie Recipe

One of my favorite frozen drinks is the Piña Colada. I know…stereotypical-girl-drink. But, I can’t help it. I like it. I thought it would be fun to do a play on the frozen drink with something more suited for breakfast (or a snack). A regular smoothie is great, but my lazy side loves adding a handful of greens for a quick & easy dose of veggies. So, I came up with this healthy Piña Colada Green Monster Smoothie Recipe.

Piña Colada Green Monster Smoothie {Recipe}
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Here's a healthy version of the famous Piña Colada (sans alcohol) - a single serving smoothie! I added a handful of baby kale for a quick way to get some greens in my eats, but you could sub regular kale or baby spinach. Or, you could skip the greens for a non-Green-Monster, but still-delicious smoothie. Bananas aren't in most Piña Coladas, but I like them as a base ingredient for my smoothies.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1
  • 1 cup loosely packed baby kale or sub regular kale, baby spinach (or sub ¼ cup frozen kale/spinach)
  • 1 banana (a frozen banana will give you a thicker consistency, but non-frozen works, too)
  • ½ cup frozen pineapple pieces
  • ½ cup canned light (non-light would probably work, too) coconut milk (shake the can well first)
  • ice cubes, optional, use as needed to get preferred texture (I didn't use any)
  • sweetener of choice, to taste, optional (but you probably won't need it - the pineapple and bananas are very sweet naturally)
  1. In order: place baby kale, banana, pineapple, and coconut milk in the blender.
  2. Cover and blend until ingredients are processed and smooth, about 1-2 minutes (if you need to make the smoothie thicker, stop and add a couple ice cubes and blend again until smoothie starts blending and/or reaches desired texture, repeat as needed). Taste test and if desired, blend in sweetener of choice to taste.
  3. For a pretty look, garnish with a pineapple wedge and some coconut flakes. Enjoy!
It's easy to multiply this recipe to make more servings!

      Exactly. I have a hard time not adding greens because it’s such an easy way to get more veggies in my diet…especially when I don’t normally eat as many as I’d like. :)

    I make organic green smoothies everyday and this summer I want to try a pina coloda green smoothie. I like for my green smoothies to be completely organic so I went shopping at Wagmens yesterday and got organic pineapple, organic coconut, and organic coconut water. I don’t like bananas in my smoothies and I know I would not like it in a pina coloda smoothie. I am going to use the 3 ingredients above plus, organic baby spinach, organic kale and organic carrot.

      Piña coladas typically don’t have bananas in them. I just think they’re a good smoothie staple for sweetness and texture. :) You could sub extra pineapple in lieu of banana to keep it really piña colada-y. 😉 Hope you like it!
