Hello young lovers!
Welcome to another Monday, and can you believe it’s already going to be MAY this week?! I can’t even…
In more current news, this weekend was funfully filled with some fresh air, quality time with my gal Hannah, and of course another trip to Pressed Cafe.
I also snuck in a run on Sunday, since it was my ideal running weather–cloudy, chilly, and otherwise miserable.
And plus, I had this glass of sunshine waiting for me upon my return.
Especially for those runs where you do in fact get caught in the rain, a Pina Colada Smoothie is the perfect refuel.
I used one of my new favorite almond milk variations, which is the Almond Coconut blend from Blue Diamond. It has that tropical coco-nutty taste, but still has the sweetness I love from almond milk without adding any sweeteners.
And plus, there’s no alcohol, so this colada is socially acceptable before 5 PM.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond coconut milk
- 1 cup fresh or canned pineapple chunks, frozen with juice
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened flaked coconut
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
- 8-10 ice cubes
- Freeze pineapple at least 4 hours, or until solid.
- Add ingredients to blender, and process until smooth. ~ 30 seconds to 1 minute.
- Serve in a tall glass, and sprinkle with additional coconut.
I added some vanilla protein powder to make a perfect post-run snack, but this bad boy is equally as good without it. The only thing that isn’t optional is a pink flamingo swizzle stick.
Make it a great day!
