Generally, you hear "Piña Colada" and think of a sickly sweet, rum-soaked drink. But not this time. This Piña Colada Smoothie is all about health and energy.

Did you know that the coconut and pineapple are two of the best fruits you can eat? (In spite of having the word “nut” in its name, the coconut is considered a fruit — not a nut.)

Coconut is a medium chain fatty acid that’s easily digested and converted to energy instead of being stored as fat. Pineapple is rich in vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, manganese, thiamine and vitamin B6. Chia seeds and raw honey add more nutrients to the mix.

Plus this recipe uses our new Collagen Peptides Vanilla protein powder to add skin, joint and gut benefits. Check out the impressive macros below: 24 grams of protein, 25 grams of fats and 49.5 grams of carbs (with 10 gram of fiber, so net carbs actually 39.5 grams).

Start your day with this Piña Colada Collagen Smoothie and you won't be sorry!
