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!?
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup cut up pineapple
- 1/4 cup coconut water (drained from a coconut or from a can)
- 2 tsp. almond milk
- Put your frozen banana pieces into the blender and add 1/2 cup of pineapple, 1/4 cup of coconut water, and 2 tsp. of almond milk
- Blend together until creamy.
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.
