With all the donuts, muffins, scones, and waffles you see on this blog, I’m sure you’re probably imagining that my breakfasts are mostly of the sweet and indulgent variety.  But truly, there’s no breakfast I crave more than a freshly whipped smoothie.

Even on the weekends, when there’s more time to relax and putter in the kitchen, smoothies are still my go-to.  I just love how they fill me up without weighing me down, and they’re so nutritious.  And there are just so many different directions you can go with a smoothie!

I go through smoothie flavor phases, and they’re usually influenced by the season.  And right now, as a newly converted coconut-lover, this is my number one favorite!

The tropical pineapple and coconut flavors contrast so well with the sweet, slightly tart berries!  And I love adding frozen banana, it makes it so thick and cold, without watering it down like ice would.

Greek yogurt makes it creamy, and I also love adding a little bit of oats, just to bulk it up and make it more satisfying.  They don’t really add much flavor, but they do bring a lot of healthy fiber and antioxidants.

This is my breakfast of choice, for Mother’s Day and any other day of the week!  Give it a try, I have a feeling you are going to love it too!

Yield: 1-2 servings

Pina Colada Berry Smoothie

Whip up this Fruity Smoothie for tomorrow's Breakfast! Pineapple, Coconut and Mixed Berries come together for this Frosty, Non-Alcoholic Pina Colada Treat.

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces coconut water
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon (just a drop or two) coconut extract
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt (I used vanilla)
  • 2 tablespoons old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup fresh pineapple, or canned pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 frozen banana

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender.
  2. Whip until smooth.
  3. Serve immediately.

Notes

If you are using a fresh banana instead of frozen, you may want to cut back on the coconut water a little, to achieve the proper consistency.

Be sure to layer the ingredients in the blender in the above stated order, with softest/liquid ingredients on the bottom, and larger, frozen solid ingredients on top. This helps the machine to process everything more easily.

    What a gorgeous smoothie! I’m loving the color and the combination of fruits that you chose. I’d so love to wake up to a big glassful of this! Love your photos. — the light and colors you chose are perfect! pinned. :)

  2. Matt Robinson says

    I made a really boring smoothie today and now I wish I saw this recipe before I made mine! Oh well, there’s always tomorrow. My little guy will love this one. Have a great weekend!

  3. marcie says

    This smoothie looks so delicious, Allie! I can’t get enough of smoothies right now, and I’m loving the sound of that pina colada flavor!

  4. Nora (A Clean Bake) says

    I had the worst craving for a smoothie this morning but I didn’t want the same boring ones I always have. I wish I had seen this earlier!! Well, I know what I’ll be having for breakfast tomorrow :) (PS: Pinning this to remind myself to make it often!)

  5. Graham @ Glazed & Confused says

    Ugh. (Yes I actually just audibly ugh’ed) This looks SO good.

    I’m a bit of a smoothie addict. I love love love green tea smoothies made with yogurt and banana! I was even thinking about whipping one up for myself earlier, but didn’t have everything readily available. Naturally, I saw this and now I’m drooling all over myself and my stomach is growling.

    To the grocery store I go!

    • Allie {Baking A Moment} says

      I am a TOTAL smoothie addict. Seriously. Every morning, and sometimes again in the afternoon. I keep meaning to brew up some green tea to use- I really gotta do that. I hope you enjoy this one, Graham!

  6. Kelly says

    This is such a gorgeous smoothie Allie! I love all the tropical flavors in here – especially all the coconut and pineapples – yum! Hope you have an incredible weekend and Mother’s Day :)

  7. Mary Frances says

    True that! Smoothies are incredible for filling you up without making you feel so full. With all the heavy sweet breads and breakfast foods going around, this is a fantastic option! And it is so pretty. I like adding a smidge of oats too – more fill me up! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend Allie!

    • Allie {Baking A Moment} says

      Thanks Mary Frances! The holiday weekend was so nice- I hope yours was too. I thought the same thing, I’m guilty of posting lots of super-indulgent recipes here but really I love a much lighter breakfast. I’m so glad you liked it! Have a great week, sweetie!

  8. Gloria // Simply Gloria says

    Allie, this is going to be the best breakfast! I’m planning on making this next week. Putting the items on my list. It just looks so berry-licious! Hope your weekend is filled with so much joy!

  9. Helen @ Scrummy Lane says

    What a great name … pina colada smoothie! I’m seeing a few oat smoothies like this around lately and am definitely getting sold on the idea of giving one a go … especially with strawberry season just coming in. Lovely!

    • Allie {Baking A Moment} says

      Definitely try it- the oats don’t change the taste much at all but they just bulk up the smoothie a bit and make it more filling. I always add a couple tablespoons, it’s great! Thanks so much for the sweet comment, my dear, and I hope your week is off to a great start!

    • Allie {Baking A Moment} says

      So funny, Jessica- I really have been! I can’t wait to sip this yummy treat for breakfast lately. I’m so glad you liked my favorite smoothie recipe! Thanks so much for stopping by and for the sweet comment ;)

  10. Justine@CookingandBeer says

    I’m a recent convert of putting oats in my smoothies. I am just in love with the texture. So guess what, we totally had a winter storm this past weekend! Isn’t that the saddest thing ever?! Am I still allowed to make a a cool and refreshing smoothie even though it’s 30 degrees outside!? Please say yes. I’m having the wintertime blues :(. I hope you had a great weekend, Allie! xo

  11. Ashley says

    I’m all about the smoothies lately – definitely will be trying out this combo! And such gorgeous photos – I love that pink background and how it really pops against the white!

    • Allie {Baking A Moment} says

      Thanks Ashley! I was actually really on-the-fence about the pink background. It’s out of my comfort zone! But I’m glad to know you thought it worked ;) Thanks for the great feedback and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

  12. Laura@Baking in Pyjamas says

    Yum, this is what I could do with now. It’s so hot here at the minute, I need something healthy and fresh to see me through these days. Thanks for linking up to Sweet and Savoury Sunday, stop by and link up again. Have a great day!!
