Anyway, I don’t really need an excuse to celebrate the Pina Colada, but since it is National Pina Colada day, I thought I would give you a fun and delicious smoothie to quench your thirst and cure your craving for the ultimate tropical drink.

Obviously this is non-alcoholic, but I guess if you wanted to add a little rum or something else, have at it.

While this smoothie has plenty of ingredients, it isn’t difficult to make at all.

Look at all that fruity deliciousness! Omg!

I freeze my herbs to use later, which makes them GREAT for adding to smoothies. Just drop a handful of frozen basil cubes and you’re ready to go. If you don’t freeze your basil, that’s ok, just add a couple of pinches of finely minced basil and a cup of regular ice cubes. Easy peasy substitution!

Oh, I also freeze bananas because frozen bananas are PERFECT for smoothies.

I just have to say, I love the specks of color through this smoothie. It is absolutely fantastic and a powerhouse of wonderful ingredients all combined into one! Enjoy!

Oh, and happy National Pina Colada day my friends! Cheers!

  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 20 ounces pineapple chunks with juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil finely minced
  • 1 medium banana peeled
  • 1 cup ice see note


  • In a blender, puree the blueberries, coconut milk, pineapple chunks AND their juice and the coconut manna (or unsweetened coconut) until smooth.
  • If you are using frozen herb ice cubes, drop in 2-4 cubes. If you are using fresh basil, drop in 2 tablespoons.
  • Add 1 frozen banana (unless using fresh) and blend until smooth. (if using non-frozen banana – add 1 cup of ice and blend until smooth).
  • I did not add anything else to sweeten because the banana is sweet enough, but if you need something more, add 1 tablespoon of honey and blend.


Omit ice if basil and banana are frozen
