Green Pina Colada (alcohol free)

This month for Secret Recipe Club I had Angela's Kitchen. Angela cooks dairy-free, gluten-free foods and has been for a long time. She's got a ton of recipes on her blog and I found several I wanted to try, but there was something appealing to me about the idea of a pina colada with spinach instead of alcohol. Cause that's the way we roll around here, people. Also, I kept wanting to call it the Green Pina. Even though I couldn't figure out how to type that swoopy thing over the 'n.'

It was fun. And green. And pina-colada-y. Enjoy.

Green Pina Colada
adapted from Angela's Kitchen
serves 2-4
Prep time: 5 minutes
Cost: $2.50
spinach: .50, pineapple: .50, juice: .50 (a bit of a guess there, honestly), coconut milk: .60, yogurt: .40

2 C baby spinach leaves
1 C frozen pineapple chunks
1 C pineapple juice
1/2 C coconut milk (from a can, though the boxed type would probably work well too)
1/2 C plain yogurt (Angela used non-dairy, but I used regular)

Combine in blender until smooth and green baby.



  1. That sounds so refreshing and healthy - and super delicious. Nice choice!

  2. YUM! I bet it's a super refreshing drink and it would be great to start out the day with a glass! Great choice for the SRC!

  3. Oooh, how fun. And I think the spinach will cancel out the rum in health impact, so I'm pretty sure you can still add it. :)

  4. That is an awesome recipe that I am definitely going to have to give a try. Part smoothie, part tropical drink - all delicious!

  5. That’s clever sneaking spinach in there!

  6. What a great way to sneak in some extra greens! :)
