It’s the end of March and yesterday Columbus was blessed with a snowstorm that lasted all afternoon. It was the last thing that any of us wanted. Okay, well there might be a few residents who don’t mind but the rest of us were cursing and shaking our fists in the air.
So to beat the winter blues, I’m posting something springy and fun! Something that nourishes both the body and spirit.
Pina Colada smoothie! Super green in color to perk up any blah winter day and tasty enough that you might start looking around for some rum.
Andrea’s Pina Colada Smoothie
- 1C OJ
- 1C Unsweetened Coconut Milk (like SO Delicious)
- 2 Large handfuls of baby spinach
- 1 Frozen Banana
- 1/2 C Frozen Pineapple
- 1/4C Frozen Mango
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. This will be a thicker smoothie, like milkshake or frozen drink style. Makes enough for two large glasses.
Perfectly tart and creamy. It tastes just like a pina colada but looks like spring. The amounts of frozen pineapple and mango are estimates because I didn’t measure those out. Go by what you like. The pineapple is more tart while the mango is more sweet. You need to use enough pineapple to ensure you get the pina colada taste because that’s what makes the smoothie.
I’m telling you it’s tart so be prepared! But it’s refreshing and will remind you of the warmer temps that will be arriving soon!
Have fun guys, and remember, always play with your food! Enjoy!
