Pina Colada Smoothie

Kirk wanted something cold and creamy on these hot days, and that wasn’t a milkshake. So I came up with a thick, cold and creamy pina colada smoothie. Tastes like a milkshake, but has better for you ingredients.

Pina Colada Smoothie


  • 1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • ½ cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp honey or sugar-free “honey”
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup ice cubes


Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender and process until smooth.

Serves 1 large smoothie.


I took canned pineapple chunks, drained them, froze them flat on a cookie sheet, and then packed them up. While I do 2 cans at once, to have it on hand, 1 can is plenty.

I do this because raw pineapple hurts my mouth (I am one of those weirdos). Being canned, the pineapple has the enzymes killed off in the heat. But if you can eat fresh, then by all means use it.

And yes, you can buy it pre-frozen in bags, but a can is much cheaper since I buy pineapple in 8-12 packs of cans on Amazon.

I recently got a bottle of Choc Zero’s sugar-free, keto-friendly “honey.” It’s a great alternative to watch your added sugar and honestly it tastes pretty good.
