Pina Colada super shake

This shake is always a huge hit in my household and whenever I make it the kids and adults demolish the lot in a flash.  I have been asked many times recently to post the recipe but needed to make a few perfecting tweaks before I was happy to share it.

So you will need

A pineapple (peeled and cut into chunks)

1 1/2 cups of coconut rice milk

1 cup of ice

2 bananas

1 tsp of Maca

1 tablespoon of almond butter

Add all the ingredients to your blender and whizz until you get a smooth consistency.  Serve and enjoy immediately!

If you can’t find coconut rice milk you can use vanilla rice milk or plain rice milk (one cup) and half a cup of coconut cream or coconut milk, adjust to your own taste, the pineapple gives a naturally sweet taste but if you need any extra sweetness use a little vanilla extract or a teaspoon of honey.  I always prefer to use fresh pineapple as it is much tastier and nutritious but you could use canned pineapple if fresh is not available.  The maca powder doesn’t really do much to the taste but I love to use it for the super food boost it gives to the shake.

I recently made a big batch for my daughters 9th birthday “Paparazzi Party” and served them in (plastic) champagne flutes to make them really special for her.
