Ingredients:

  • 3 cups of Ice
  • 1 Package of Vanilla Carnation Instant Breakfast
  • 6 oz can of Pineapple Juice
  • Freshly chopped pineapple (about 1 cup)
  • Goya Cream of Coconut – (Found in the Goya section at your supermarket, be sure to stir well before using)

1.  Fill your blender with ice РI fill mine up to the 3 cup mark.  Add the Instant Breakfast and the can of Pineapple Juice.

2.  Blend until completely smooth.

3.  Add 3 Tablespoons of Cream of Coconut and 1 Cup of freshly chopped Pineapple

 

 

 

 

 

 

4.  Blend until smooth.  Enjoy!

 

This Recipe makes 2 large smoothies.  For those counting calories, each serving is 300 calories.

*Tip РI make these in the morning and drink one and freeze the other.  My husband takes the frozen one out before bed and puts in in the refrigerator.  On his way out the door in the morning he grabs it out of the fridge and has a nice breakfast on the go!

  • Vanilla Instant Breakfast is my FAVORITE way to make a fruit smoothie even better. Seriously – it takes it to the next level, doesn’t it? :)

  • I love the idea of using Instant Breakfast instead of the protein powders that so many smoothie recipes include and I’m pretty sure there are sugar-free versions of Instant Breakfast so that might cut down on the calories. This looks really delicious and so easy to make. Thanks!
