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!
