Pina Colada White Bean Smoothie

A great tasting smoothie made with beans to boost protein and add fibre!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500 mL) pineapple juice
  • 14 oz (398 mL) can light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) mashed ripe banana
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) crushed ice
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) vanilla Greek yogurt, fat free
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) honey
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup (250 mL) cooked or canned white beans, rinsed well

Directions

Place all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.

Pour into glasses, garnish with a slice of lime and serve immediately.

Tips

  • White beans to use include navy, great northern, white kidney or cannellini beans.
  • The sweetness, acidity and texture can be adjusted by adding more or less of the honey, banana, lime juice and ice.
  • Be sure to rinse the cooked beans under water to keep their flavour neutral.
  • If the smoothie sits for a long period of time, it may separate.  If this occurs, blend or stir it quickly before serving.
  • If you didn’t use all the canned beans, freeze the leftovers by placing them in a freezer bag or airtight container and freeze for up to 6 months.  Now you have an easy and nutritious ingredient to add to your stews and chilis.
