What a beautiful sunshiny day! As I was saying yesterday, I wish we could skip straight through to Spring. However, we are expecting 10 cm of snow this week…. I guess we have a little more time ahead of us before the bluebirds sing. Oh well, those fresh snowflakes can be quite pretty. Earlier today, I was over at my mom’s house working on a website design for her. After experiencing a couple of hiccups along the way, it was sure time for a break and today’s smoothie. I chopped up some fresh pineapple and a frozen banana, added a few tablespoons of unsweetened coconut, almond milk, and a touch of cinnamon – creating a healthy version of one of my favorite tropical beverages, pina colada. What a sensational treat. You have to try this one!
Thank you for commenting and leaving your ideas for smoothie ingredients in my last few posts, I will definitely be trying coconut milk in one of my next creations. I think it would be delicious in this recipe, I just didn’t have any on hand! Next time 🙂 I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did!
