It doesn’t matter if it’s the middle of May or the end of January, a piña colada always tastes like sweet, sunny summertime.
They also taste like sugar, cream, and calories. And
This Piña Colada Shake recipe comes to the rescue with a healthier version of the tropical cocktail.
Invented in 1954 at the Beachcomber Bar in San Juan, Puerto Rico, the classic piña colada (which means “strained pineapple”) is made with coconut cream or coconut milk, pineapple juice, and rum.
To make our version of the piña colada, we substituted Vanilla Shakeology for coconut cream, then added pineapple juice and pure coconut extract to create a flavor that will make you daydream that you’re lying in a hammock on the beach.
Coconut extract is available in the baking aisle of most supermarkets or buy it online.
Experience the sweet, creamy flavor of robust vanilla as your daily superfood dessert.
