Pina Colada Smoothies

Aloha! I just wanted to start this post off by saying that I made these about two months ago. The day that I booked my trip to Hawaii (where I am currently) my mom and I made these to celebrate. I just never had time to post the recipe… but I am now:

Yep, you heard me – pina colada smoothies. How could this blog post get any better? Well, what if I told you they were served out of a pineapple and a coconut?

In honor of my trip to Maui, Hawaii, I am sharing this delicious recipe with you. I’ve always wanted to have a drink out of a pineapple or coconut (it makes me feel tropical). So what better time to do it then during my trip to one of the most tropical places in the world!?

You can play around with the ratios and add more or less of whatever you want. We also experimented with strawberry banana pina coladas, and for that we just used the same recipe but added a few cut up strawberries. You can also add alcohol if you’d like to make it a full fledged pina colada. Malibu will definitely give it that flavour.

To make the pineapple and coconut cups:

For the pineapple I just cut it in half, and carved out the center with a knife and sharp spoon. For the coconut I stuck a screwdriver in and hammered it to drain out the water, the cracked it open with a hammer to use it as a cup. (Both of them weren’t as easy as it sounds.)

Do you have a favourite tropical drink? If so, comment below and tell me what it is and how you like to prepare it.

Cheers!
