Pina Colada Smoothie recipe – Two Ways!

In my opinion, nothing says summer like a really great smoothie.  When I was a kid, my dad would make us peach smoothies. I remember this being such a treat. My brothers and I would get so excited, especially if fresh peaches were in season. However, growing up in South Dakota, fresh peaches were only available for a couple weeks in August. The majority of the time, my dad had to open up a can of store-bought peaches. Either way, we loved the smoothies he made.

This Pina Colada Smoothie recipe has the the same great flavor as that yummy peach smoothie my dad use to make. This smoothie delivers excellent texture, flavor, and just the perfect amount of sweetness. It’s also a fantastic way to enjoy a healthy breakfast or snack.

Here’s how this delicious Pina Colada Smoothie recipe comes together:
