Breakfast Pina Colada

Spring is in the air. Summer is right around the corner. You struggle to eat breakfast every day. You long to spend long days dancing in the summer breezes. If you can relate to any of those statements, and maybe even like getting caught in the rain (are not into yoga or have half a brain) – then you have Jimmy Buffett on the brain!

No, but seriously – if you are a breakfast smoothie person (you’re looking at one right here, its my go-to breakfast most days of the week) than you are going to love this smoothie! It tastes so rich, but in reality is loaded with goodies for you! It has oats to keep you full, pineapple and coconut to satisfy the sweet tooth. This Breakfast Smoothie can even be enjoyed as a mid-afternoon snack, light enough to hold you over but not so heavy that it weighs you down for dinner. How about enjoying this in the evening after a workout or a busy day when you just want to relax? I bet if you cut the oats out, you could even have a cocktail ready to serve to guests of any age!

Three Years Ago – the original version of Chocolate Matzo which I posted, not the best photos, but the original version of Chocolate Covered Matzo which I then re-posted this Passover!

And I leave you with this, Today’s Question of the Day… Which line of “Escape” by Jimmy Buffett do you most relate to?



Breakfast Pina Colada — 5 Comments

  1. Smoothies are my go-to breakfast. Always with oats, always with greek yogurt, always with frozen banana, and often with pineapple. I can’t believe it never occurred to me to make it a pina colada! It’s only one of my favorite summer cocktails… This is happening. Tomorrow morning! 😉

    • I don’t know why I have never thought to put oats in my smoothies before (always flax & wheat germ – but not oats)… glad we could both be enlightened today!
