This paleo pina colada smoothie is pure tropical simplicity. With just two ingredients it is dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free and paleo diet friendly. Pina coladas always put me in a vacation frame of mind and this frozen smoothie is no exception. I love the creaminess of the coconut milk with the sweetness of the pineapple. It doesn’t need anything else.
Even though I use packaged ingredients in this recipe, I make sure the ingredients are clean. I like Trader Joe’s light coconut milk because the ingredient list is just coconut and water. I’m not a big fan of the gums and other processed food ingredients used in most coconut milks. The same goes for frozen pineapple. I always use one that has only pineapple on the ingredient list.
This smoothie couldn’t be easier. Just put equal parts coconut milk and frozen pineapple in the Vitamix. It will be very thick. If you don’t have a high-speed blender, you may need to add a little water to get it going. Blend until smooth. That’s it. In less than five minutes you have a creamy frozen paleo pina colada smoothie that tastes like vacation in a glass.
