Welcome to my place today. I am participating in a fun Summer Survival Giveaway with the Creative team from I Heart Naptime. In our home, summer means HOT! As in..I’m melting HOT (we do live in Las Vegas)! To help out with the summer heat, we make smoothies just about every day! Some are healthy, some are not, but all hit the spot (especially in the afternoon of a sizzling day!)
Today I will share one of our favs…the Toasted Coconut Pina Colada Smoothie:
To make gather these few items:
Sweetened Coconut Flakes
A fresh pineapple
*Cut up your fresh pineapple and bananas into chunks. Place them in freezer and let set for a few hours.
*Place 1/2 cup of coconut flakes on a cookie sheet and put in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
*Add 3 cups of coconut milk, frozen pineapple and banana and 1/2-1 cup of coconut flakes (not the toasted ones)
*blend until you reach your desired consistency. if you need it thicker, add more banana. if you need it thinner, add more coconut milk.
*Pour into cups, add toasted coconut on top and garnish with fresh pineapple (optional)
