Useful tips for Pina Colada

You don’t have to freeze the coconut milk overnight, but it will help to make the consistency “creamy” without using any cream. We suggest freezing the whole can in ice cube trays and using the rest to make our coconut ice cream!

Seems silly, but we wrote a whole post on how to freeze bananas correctly. Once you become a smoothie connoisseur, you’ll always want to have frozen bananas on-hand. The easier they are to grab, the less hurdles you have to making a healthy breakfast 🙂

Use fresh pineapple if possible. Otherwise frozen works fine if you add a bit of extra coconut water.
