Tips For A Super Creamy Smoothie
There’s just something extra special about a smoothie that is ultra creamy and almost like a milkshake! Am I right, or amiright!? A couple of tips for creating extra creamy goodness are to use chilled full fat coconut milk and frozen fruit! I like to break my bananas into small chunks and then freeze them. And for this recipe, I used frozen chunks of pineapple as well. You can get a fresh pineapple, and then chop and freeze… or…save yourself a little time and just buy already chopped frozen pineapple. That’s what I did!
You know when you’re on vacation and you enjoy all the tasty beverages while you sit back and relax in the sun or a shady spot near the pool or ocean? Well, that feeling is what it is like every time I make this piña colada smoothie! The first sip makes me feel like time stops just for a second and that I’m right on a beach somewhere warm and tropical. Right now I’m imagining the beach in Maui. Where would you like this piña colada smoothie to transport you to?
The combination of coconut, banana and pineapple give this refreshing piña colada smoothie all the tropical flavors that make you feel like you’re on vacation. Add a little vanilla and lime juice and your tastebuds will be dancing and swaying like the summer breeze through palm trees. It’s time. Time to take a moment to forget whatever is on your to-do list, whatever needs to get done around the house and just indulge for a moment in this tropical piña colada smoothie! Your soul will thank you!
