My Favorite Virgin Piña Coladas & Lava Flows

Y'all, I'm having Hawaii withdrawals to the max. I shopped at Old Navy yesterday (HELLO huge sales!) and purchased pineapple socks, a pineapple tank, and an "aloha" cami on the whim. I think I'm needing to make another trip to the Dole plantation.

I've been snacking on milk chocolate macadamia nuts ( FAVORITE new addiction), watching Hawaii Life on HGTV, and sitting poolside pretending I'm back on the beach.

I have decided to give into the Hawaii withdrawal symptoms by continuing to purchase some tropical ingredients to make Virgin Piña Coladas or Lava Flows (Piña Coladas+Strawberry). While on the beach, we had them almost

They are so refreshing, delicious, easy, and they're health food. Or something like that. They taste like summer. I added some 2% Chobani Pineapple Greek yogurt and a banana for some extra protein & fiber.

And if you have polkadot straws, they are even better! believe me on this one.


1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup Chobani 2% pineapple Greek yogurt
1/2 cup Dole canned pineapple rings
1/2 frozen banana
3 Tbs. sweetened coconut
2 Tbs. brown sugar
handful of ice

1. Blend all ingredients together until smooth.
2. For Lava Flows, reserve 1/4 cup of smoothie, add handful of strawberries and blend. Pour over Piña Colada and enjoy!
