Pina Colada Banana Bread with Coconut Cream Glaze
Like everyone else in the world…the end of the week leaves me with a few less than stunning bananas on the counter. It’s inevitable. No matter how hard I try to make sure they all get eaten, there’s always a few stragglers just begging to be turned into something new. Crying to not be thrown into the trashcan. Weeping to be eaten…someway, somehow.
They’re the most dramatic of all bananas….brown and speckled with hints of what used to be a beautiful yellow hue. Well, maybe it’s not quite that theatrical…but we try our best to not waste food around here so I have a few creations where these bananas serve a wonderful purpose….because you know what they offer that less ripe bananas don’t?
Natural sugar…..they’re much sweeter than the pretty bananas so it’s a fact when they say “true beauty is only skin deep.” Those black bananas…..they’re remarkable on the inside.
So, I try to whip them into things like muffins and baked oatmeal when I want to cut back or eliminate sugar completely…which is happening a lot lately. The trying to cut back on sugar. I think we could all use less sugar but without sacrificing flavor.
Now I’m not saying this Pina Colada Banana Bread is low sugar by any stretch of the imagination but it is a sweet treat that’s not packed with corn syrup or cup upon cup of granulated sugar. If you’re looking for a sweet treat without added sugar you could try this chia seed pudding.…it’s completely amazing and the most popular recipe here on the blog.
We love banana bread here and I try to incorporate new twists to it like this ganache coated beauty or this one with white chocolate and macadamia nuts. It’s a great sweet treat and a wonderful way to start the day. My Pina Colada Banana Bread is loaded with pineapple, coconut and coconut milk.
Then it’s drenched in a coconut cream glaze and topped with toasted coconut. Completely dreamy. If you want to cut back on the sweetness you can skip the glaze…but why would you do that. It’s simply amazing and will definitely take your mouth on a mini Caribbean vacation.

Banana pina colada recipe - Recipes
Coconut and pineapple has to be one of the quintessential flavor combinations of the summer! So what better fruit to add to that delicious mix than bananas? This is an updated lighter version of the classic beach cocktail, a piña colada. Instead of coconut cream, sugary juice or those nasty mixes, this summertime mocktail combines fresh and healthy ingredients for that same creamy and delicious satisfaction without all the garbage.
The bananas provide plenty of sweetness, so there is no need for any sugar or sweeteners and by freezing both the bananas and the coconut milk, you won’t end up with a watered down drink as the ice slush melts. Obviously, if you wish to make this an alcoholic cocktail, add in a shot or two of your favorite rum at the end and give it another whirl in the blender.
There is no refined sugar added to this and it is delicious even without the rum. The creamy sweetness from the bananas and the coconut milk provides more than enough sweet, so you don’t have to add any sugar or sweetener at all. And even if you go with the full-fat coconut milk, it is still lighter than the standard coconut cream that is used. If you want it to be even lighter and lower in fat and calories, feel free to use light coconut milk. I personally like the creaminess of full fat coconut milk and since it is a healthy fat, I can totally justify indulging! Plus, the other bonus of this creamy summertime mocktail is that it could also be enjoyed as a delicious and sinful breakfast smoothie. That would be the perfect way to start any day, if you ask me.
Banana Piña Colada
- 2 frozen organic ripe bananas
- 1 cup fresh pineapple chunks (frozen will work if you cannot find fresh)
- 1 cup no sugar added organic pineapple juice
- 1/2 can organic coconut milk (full fat or light) – frozen into cubes
- Coconut flakes for garnish
- Fresh pineapple wedges for garnish
*Optional – add 4 ounces of your favorite rum to make this an alcoholic cocktail
Add all of the ingredients except the coconut flakes and pineapple wedges to your blender. Blend until smooth and creamy. If you are adding rum, add it after it is creamy and blended, and blend again quickly to mix it in. Pour into 4 glasses, serve each topped with coconut flakes and garnish with a fresh pineapple wedge.

What Is a Piña Colada?
The piña colada is a frozen blended drink that originated in Puerto Rico. It’s typically made from coconut, rum, pineapple juice, and ice.
Our inspired version uses whole pineapple instead of juice, and we freeze it so there’s no need to add ice! The result is more fiber and nutrients, plus a smooth and creamy texture.
The frozen pineapple and coconut milk are blended up. Then, depending on the sweetness of your pineapple, you may choose to add a little honey or maple syrup.
For added protein, you can optionally add plain or vanilla protein powder. Or, for a whole food protein source, try a tablespoon or so of hemp seeds!
To make it boozy, add 1-2 ounces of white rum. You’ll be feeling like you’re on the beach in no time!
We hope you LOVE this piña colada smoothie! It’s:
It’s the perfect summer drink or great for any time you want to be immediately transported into vacation mode! For an extra special twist, top with coconut whipped cream, fresh mint, and cherries.

Strawberry Banana Piña Colada Recipe
Last week I made a healthy protein smoothie. Admittedly, this week’s drink is not so healthy. But it’s good! And sweet. So if you enjoy a sweet, frozen piña colada with strawberry and banana twist, then this recipe is for you! Here is my Strawberry Banana Piña Colada recipe. Enjoy!
This recipe was my inspiration. Here are the ingredients you will need to make two of my strawberry banana piña coladas:
- 1/2 to 1 Cup of fresh or frozen (defrosted) strawberries
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 small can pineapple juice (1 C)
- 1/2 C coconut cream
- 1 small banana (sliced and frozen)
- 1/2 to 1 C diced and frozen pineapple chunks
- 2 ounces of rum (I use coconut rum)
- a few ice cubes if needed
Add the sugar to the defrosted strawberries and blend until smooth.
Divide the strawberry puree between two glasses.
Now it’s time to blend together the remaining ingredients. I use a Nutri Ninja and it’s recommend to fill the jar with the liquid ingredients first and the hard ingredients (like ice) last.
Once the remaining ingredients are well blended, pour over the strawberry puree and top with whipped cream!
Now let’s see the summer drink recipes that my friends are sharing:
Pina Colada Smoothie Ingredients:
This Pina Colada Smoothie recipe is really easy to make! To make it (recipe serves 2), you’ll need:
- 1 large frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp coconut flakes
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup coconut milk (the one from carton, not the can!)
Pina Colada Banana Protein Bread
Vanilla protein bread made with unsweetened shredded coconut and no sugar added pineapple juice. The banana adds a natural sweetness and makes it so moist and delicious.
- 1 small (6" to 6-7/8" long) Bananas
- 1 serving (serving = 8 fl oz) Dole 100% Pineapple Juice
- 1 serving (serving = 1/4 cup) Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal Flour
- 1 serving (serving = 1/4 cup) King Arthur Flour Premium 100% Whole Wheat Flour
- 1 serving (serving = 1/4 cup) Bob's Red Mill Unsweetened Flaked Coconut
- 1 large Egg
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 serving (serving = 1 tsp) Kroger Baking Powder
- 1 serving (serving = 1 rounded scoop) Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey - French Vanilla Creme
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Beat together one ripe banana, 2 eggs and pineapple juice. Then add the flours, protein powder, baking soda and baking powder and mix well. Lastly, add your coconut and give it a final mix. Spray a loaf pan with non-fat cooking spray and pour it in. Top it with more shredded coconut if desired. Throw it in the oven and bake it for about 20-30 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Cut it into 8 slices and have it for a snack, dessert, breakfast, or whatever!
**I used Optimum Nutrition protein powder, but any vanilla protein powder will work**
