This Pina Colada Smoothie recipe was made by,  Jess Kotlowitz, The Green Dietician.

Everybody loves a good summer time cocktail, however most cocktails are full of sugar and empty calories while providing little nutrition. That is why I created this fabulous Pina Colada Smoothie recipe. It has all the flavour of one of my all-time favourite cocktails, but with no added sugar and tons of vitamins, minerals and electrolytes from all the fruits and coconut water. The ground flax seeds add a good dose of Omega 3 essential fatty acids  and beneficial plant fibres which will help to keep your gut and immune system healthy

INGREDIENTS

  1. The night before making your smoothie, peel 2 bananas and place them in a ziplock bag in the freezer.
  2. Add your frozen bananas along with the rest of the ingredients into your blender or nutribullet and blend until smooth. If you would like a thinner consistency, add some more filtered water and continue blending until you reach your desired consistency.
  3. Pour into 3 glasses and enjoy.
