How to make a pina colada smoothie
Making this pina colada smoothie couldn’t be easier. Simply toss all your ingredients into a the blender, and blend until smooth, about 1 minute.
As I mentioned, this recipe is protein-packed!
It can be made with either protein powder or hemp hearts. Personally, I prefer using hemp hearts since they are a wholefood ingredient, and are a great source of protein. In fact, 3 tablespoons of hemp hearts has 9.5 grams of protein! Hemp hearts are made up of healthy fats, and adds a delicious nutty flavour to the smoothie.
Or, if you prefer, you can use a vanilla protein powder instead. Check out this article from Women’s Health for some good brand recommendations. Keep in mind, if you’re using a vanilla protein powder, it’s likely that the protein powder contains sugar. So you might like to forgo the date in this recipe, unless you like your smoothies really sweet.
