Welcome to Smoothie Monday! Today’s smoothie is simply an amazing one! It contains two of my favorite ingredients, pineapple and coconut. Yeah, you probably know where I’m going with this one. No it’s not a pinacolada, but very close! It’s my Pinacolada Banana Smoothie! Oh yeah! Now this screams summer!!!
This smoothie is made with pineapple, banana, milk and to give it that coconut flavor, a pinch of coconut extract! This makes for the perfect summertime smoothie. Now don’t tell anyone, but if your feeling a tad naughty, add a pinch of rum to it! I won’t tell! Now all I need is a pool boy to bring me these drinks as I bask in the sun. You have to love summer dreaming! he he
- 1 cup pineapple, frozen
- ½ banana, frozen
- 1 cup non-fat milk or coconut milk
- ¼ tsp. coconut extract
- Add all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
I am really enjoying my summertime drinks. I have to admit since I had my wisdom teeth pulled, I have been on a liquid diet. I have been drinking a protein shake for breakfast, smoothie for lunch and a normal dinner and I have to admit, I feel good! I have energy and I even lost a couple of pounds. It wasn’t intentional, but it seems to be working for me. I’m going to try to stick to this for a while. I have two big summer trips coming up and I know I’ll be eating bad on them, so I want to make sure I lose a few pounds before hand because I know I’ll gain a few when I’m there!
I hope you have a great week!
