In my opinion, nothing says summer like a really great smoothie or shake. This smoothie delivers excellent texture, flavor, and just the perfect amount of sweetness.
This smoothie is ideal for breakfast or a great snack for you and the kids on a hot afternoon. With just a bit of prep before hand it literally takes about 5 minutes to have this cool, frosty drink in hand.
You can also adapt this drink making it a fabulous cocktail and wonderful to sip on the patio at the end of a great summer day.
Here’s the recipe:
You’ll find that you don’t need any additional sweetener, as the pineapple, banana and coconut do the job.
Adaptation for Pina Colada Cocktail:
substitute 1 1/2 c. vanilla ice cream, for the greek yogurt
add 2-3 oz. of Malibu Rum (add more or less depending on how strong you like it)
Blend and serve.
Cheers for a happy summer!
