Paleo Piña Colada

Natalie Perry | Perry's Plate Updated

Paleo piña coladas for everyone! It straight up tastes like a frozen dessert, but one you don't have to feel guilty about. Booyah.

Whenever I stumble upon a concoction that has absolutely no added sweetener and still tastes like a frozen dessert I do cartwheels on the inside and squeal like a 14-year-old... on the outside.

I have no shame.

This one in particular made me nostalgic for a treat my grandma would make for us when we'd come to visit. She blended a frozen pina colada Bacardi mix with some bananas a milk, and we happily slurped down the entire pitcher. Mmm.

My paleo version isn't 75% corn syrup and contains no dairy, despite being rich and creamy. (Hooray!) All you need are three ingredients: bananas, fresh pineapple, and coconut milk.

The trick to getting that soft-serve consistency is freezing the bananas and pineapple and using either a powerful blender or a food processor to blend it.

I love this little smoothie/sorbet thing. I'm not sure how to classify it, but it's just the thing to calm my sweet tooth during detox months. Or any month for that matter.

Paleo Pina Colada Recipe

  4 Servings


  • 3 large Bananas, cut into thirds and frozen
  • 2 cups Pineapple Chunks, frozen
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk


Buzz everything here together in a blender, helping it along, if needed, by pushing things down (with the blender turned off, of course).

If it's still too thick, add up to 1/2 cup of water to get things going.
