All I can say about Pina Colada Smoothie Recipe is yummy!!! And they come in so many different variations I'm sure you'll find one that you like.
I don’t drink alcohol but I have some friends that add coconut rum or even mango rum to it and they love it.
The only down fall is that they can be fattening, at least the way I like them, but hey, if you are going to have one why mot make it taste the best and enjoy.... one rich and creamy smoothy never hurt anyone!

Here is what you can add to make it more healthy, I learned these things when I worked in a health food store when I was in high school over 30 years ago, wow am I that old already !!
Lecithin is a fat emulsifier that helps your body break down fat and flush it from your body its great for you skin, hair and digestive system but the best thing about it, is it makes your drinks creamy and sweet naturally!
any protein powder is fine jut look out for the calories in it, it can really vary
Substitute Milk for Soy Milk
the soy milk that is produce these day taste really great and some are vanilla or chocolate flavored.
NEVER ADD SUGAR !
Sugar is so bad for your body but if you need it to be a little sweeter, which don’t feel guilty I love sweets!, add honey instead of sugar. Honey is actually incredibly good for your body and is a natural healer and is just allover a great beauty and healthy food!
Ok here is where I contradict my healthy side...
At any time it is ok to use Ice Cream to make it extra rich and creamy to ANY Smoothie recipe including tropical strawberry smoothie recipe. and turn it into a shake, yummmmy
