Take yourself to the tropics with this tasty smoothie bowl. The flavours of a Piña Colada blended together for a healthy breakfast treat! Frozen Pineapple and Banana are blended together with the cream from a can of coconut milk. It's rich and delicious, but if you wanted to use coconut yogurt you could definitely do that with delicious results. I always add 1/2 - 1 scoop of my vegan vanilla protein powder to my smoothie bowls. It's a no brainer, adds a lot of good for you things and imparts a flavour that I find enhances the sweetness of the fruit. Even though I gave up alcohol 4 months ago, my brain can't help but think RUM, probably not a smart breakfast idea....but if I was drinking, I would probably want to make a boozy version of this some hot summer evening and have it in a nice glass, garnished with the same things.
For the garnishes, a couple of fresh cherries, coconut chips (Found in many organic sections at grocery stores or bulk barn/bulk food stores), fresh banana, mint, and a scoop of frozen Coco Whip. I buy the So Delicious Brand of Coco Whip in the organic freezer section at Super Store. It's a product I love because you can scoop it out frozen to garnish whatever you'd like, or thaw and use a substitute for whipped cream. It's delicious, versatile and you can thaw and refreeze with no trouble.
