RICHMOND, Va. --Take a trip to the tropics with this recipe. Food Health Coach, Erika Schlick joins us with her simple yet delicious Pina Colada smoothie. For this recipe and more visit her website.


8 ounces frozen pineapple

1 frozen banana

1 tablespoon vanilla extract 

1 cup coconut milk

1 cup ice

Water as needed


1. Put all the ingredients in a high speed blender and combine. Pour into a large glass jar.

2. Garnish with fresh pineapple and mint.

* I find the fruit is sweet enough but if you want more sweetness add some honey or maple syrup.

If you want to get festive with this smoothie you can add some rum.
