Recipe Corner: Protein Pina Colada
Recipe by Cornelia Sabrina, @Cornelia_Sabrina on IG
Who else is summer ready after this awful winter storm that raged across the states recently? I sure am! And what better way to kick off the vibes of summer than with the appropriate drink. I would highly recommend finding that rum extract in your grocery store's baking aisle as it brings this smoothie to a new level, but it tastes just as good without it. The toasted coconut gives it that really coconutty flavor. I could literally drown myself in this treat! Enjoy your virgin cocktail with the peace of mind that you are fueling your body well.
Protein Pina Colada
Recipe makes 1 serving as meal or 2 servings as snack
Time: 5 minutes
2 cups Coconut Milk, unsweetened (chilled)*
1.5 cups Pineapple chunks, frozen
1.5 scoops TRU Coconut Macaron Protein
3 tbsp toasted Coconut flakes, unsweetened
1/2 tsp Rum Extract (optional)
1) Add all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
2) Top with coconut whipped cream, pineapple bits and toasted coconut flakes to make it look even more appetizing.
3) Serve and top with your favorite things. I used plant yogurt, TRU Nut Butter, frozen berries and homemade granola.
*This is unsweetened coconut milk from the milk isle, DO NOT use canned coconut milk for cooking as it is way more calorie dense and higher in fat.
