Healthy Greenya Colada Smoothie

Today is my birthday and I am sharing my favorite healthy “Greenya Colada” smoothie recipe. Don’t worry, I will probably drink a boozy pina colada later because, balance.

I am a smoothie fanatics. I got a vitamix a few years ago and I truly use it several times a day. It earns its keep in my house.

Green monster smoothies have been very popular as of late, and although they look a little scary like a monster, they are anything but. My favorite “green” addition to smoothies is baby spinach. I have tried kale before and its a touch too strong for me. I also have tried making kale chips and, well, um, lets just say I am not a fan. But I LOVE sauteed kale.

And I love smoothies. If I whip one up post workout I will add in some protein powder. On days I make smoothies in the afternoon I try to make extra and either share with my kids, who think green smoothies are awesome, or I fill up our popsicle molds with the leftover.

I call this a Greenya Colada since its my version of a non-alcoholic Pina Colada with greens added. I know, SO original right?

I started out taking pics of the smoothies on my patio, my kids were playing in their pool and it was a really nice day out. Until my 4 year old decided to turn on the hose and spray me. So back inside I went. Also when I was planning on making these, I was trying to think of what glasses to use as I am starting quite the glass collection, all from World Market. And when I saw these little mason jars cups there the other day, I just HAD to go back and use them.


Healthy Green-ya Colada Smoothie and a Birthday Giveaway
Recipe type: Smoothie
Greenya Colada Makes 2 large servings
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • 1½ cups frozen pineapple chunks
  • 3-4 cups spinach
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • Ice
  • Honey (optional)
  • Pineapple slices and coconut flakes for garnish
  1. Combine the coconut milk and water, then spinach and then frozen pineapple on top. Blend on medium until spinach is starting to puree and then while blender is on slowly pour in coconut oil. Once added, blend on high. Taste and add ice and honey if desired for a thicker more sweeter shake. Sprinkle coconut flakes on top and a slice of pineapple for garnish
You can sub Almond milk for the coconut milk if you would like. Also you can add in things like chia seeds, protein powder, or any other green leafy you desire. Smoothies really are a recipe where the combinations of ingredients are endless!

  23. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I too use my vita-mix daily. Green smoothies are pretty much a staple in my diet. I don’t think I’ve ever done just these ingredients (I’m always just tossing more and more stuff in–whatever I have on hand–) but kind of good to limit to just pine and coco….(and green!) I think I’ll do it today. :)
    Hope your little one’s strep is improving and that you’re having a great BDAY WEEK!!! aloha aloha aloha!! thinking of you here!

  24. almost forgot! I would have SO MUCH FUN shopping at World Market. (I’ve honestly never shopped there, though I’ve heard such good things about it!) From my first glance at their site–I would adore some throw pillows for my Hawaiian home. Or new glassware! Everything looks beautiful!

  25. Happy belated birthday, Shanna! You’re truly a giver – we should be giving YOU stuff on your birthday, not the other way around! I am so jealous of everyone who lives near a World Market. Every time I see people posting the amazing things they buy from there, I want to get on a plane and travel just so I can go shopping. I hope you had a fantastic day and were spoiled by your family. I love these photos – you’ve made green monster smoothies look beautiful! 😉

  26. I love World Market! They have the best food photography props.
