Pina Colada Protein Smoothie

Who doesn't love a Pina Colada? Since this is a health and fitness blog, I'll leave the alcoholic versions to your favorite bartender and I'll tell you about this delicious, healthy, Pina Colada protein smoothie instead! 

Fill the bottom of the blender with a handful of spinach. I do this for every protein shake that I make because you can't taste it and it is an easy way to add a serving of greens into your meal. 

Add a cup of Greek coconut-flavored yogurt, a handful of fresh or frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes, 1/2 cup of canned pineapples, a scoop of vanilla protein powder and water to blend. 

Blend it all up and serve!
