Level of difficulty: just flip a switch and pour
Pots/Pans Used: one blender

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups fresh pineapple
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup almond milk
1 cup shredded coconut (optional if you're not crazy about the texture)
2 cups ice cubes
1 TBL agave nectar
the juice of one lime
2 bananas

"ahhh summer breeze makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my miiiiiiiiiind ba da da da da dum"... Sorry, I just couldn't be more happy that it's finally summer (despite the florida heat). However, it doesn't truly feel like summer until I get my fruity frozen drink on. For me, that drink has always been a pina colada. I know, I know... super girly. Regardless, I am just pretty much obsessed with coconut at this point and therefore I wanted to make a simple smoothie version of the popular drink.

If you typically like a thicker smoothie, I recommend freezing the fruit. If that's the case you can probably go light on, or even omit the ice. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. To make it fancy, you can garnish with a slice of pineapple and some toasted coconut.

Thank you, refreshing it definitely is! I'm obsessed with taking pictures now that I have my new camera, I keep cooking like crazy just so I have an excuse to use it :)

I just happened to have all the ingredients at hand other than the shredded coconut. AMAZING!!! A sinful treat. This could also be frozen into some amazing summer pops! Or, just add some rum for a yummy, decadent, slow summer afternoon. Sylvia
