Pina Colada Smoothie

Ingredients 

495 g chopped fresh or frozen pineapple (ripe for best flavour)

180 ml light coconut milk (canned or boxed)

1-2 tsp honey or maple syrup (optional // only if pineapple isn’t sweet enough)

1 scoop plain or vanilla protein powder (or add whole food source such as hemp powder // optional)

30-60 ml white rum to make it boozy (optional)

Method

In a high-speed blender add pineapple and coconut milk (we prefer light canned). Then blend on high until creamy and smooth, using the tamper (if available) to push down and blend more easily. Add more coconut milk as needed to facilitate blending and ensure creaminess.

Taste and adjust flavours as needed, adding more coconut milk for creaminess, pineapple to thicken // add sweet-tart flavour, or a bit of honey or maple syrup (optional) for additional sweetness.

If enjoying as a smoothie, you have the option of adding a bit of protein powder of choice, such as hemp, plain or vanilla. If enjoying as a cocktail, add 1-2 oz of your favorite rum (white is preferred) and blend again to combine.
