Start your weekend early with this tropical smoothie inspired by the always delicious island favorite.

Just like the cocktail, this smoothie is full of flavorful, juicy pineapple and sweet, rich coconut, with the addition of creamy, filling banana, protein powder and rolled oats.

It’s like a vacation in a glass. All that's missing is the sand between your toes.
