Yummy Pina Colada smoothie that is bursting with flavor and nutrition! A Low-Sodium, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free breakfast!
Spring has definitely sprung around our house! yay!! we are so overjoyed that the warm weather is here and we don’t have to bundle up every time we leave the house. I have been doing daily “garden walks” and inspecting the new bulbs and growth that is popping up. I’m a bit of a garden fanatic, I could walk around all day and look at my flowers!
With the warm weather I have been craving sunshine and all things yellow! I really like Pina Colada’s and they seemed like just the thing to make for a warm spring morning. Obviously I am making non alcoholic smoothies, one because they taste better and two because it is frowned upon to be drinking rum at 7 am on a Monday morning. This was just the thing! I felt justified because it’s a healthy alternative and it really is so yummy! I always know when I make something yummy because my darling husband hovers around me while I’m taking pictures of it and keeps asking me if I’m done so he can eat it! We both agreed that this smoothie was a keeper and it needed to be added to our regular smoothie line-up.
