Banana Colada Smoothie

Banana Colada Smoothies – all the flavors of a pina colada, with the delicious addition of banana, 
in a tasty treat the whole family can enjoy!

Have I mentioned that I have a family of sweet tooths? I guess it should come as no surprise, really…I have a pretty powerful sweet tooth, myself, and it doesn’t help that every other day I am making a new treat to share with all of you! The only good news? At least all the treats I’m making aren’t going to waste….! Nope – we eat every last one of them!

Which is why, every now and then, I need to find new ways to satisfy the needs of my sweet tooth family without completely ignoring our health! One of our favorite {healthy} sweet treats? Smoothies! I love making smoothies because they are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or afternoon snack, they can be shared by everyone, and the flavor possibilities are endless! So much fun for someone like me, who loves to fiddle with flavors!

Since my kids have recently discovered a love for coconut, I’ve been adding it to more and more of our sweet treats. And when you think of coconut, you naturally think of pineapple. And then your mind wanders to other tropical fruits, and after considering a few, you settle on pineapple. And there you have it! A Banana Colada Smoothie. Just as delicious and refreshing as the real deal, and something the whole family can enjoy together! Especially this family of sweet tooths.

Banana Colada Smoothie
1 c. frozen banana chunks
1 c. frozen pineapple chunks
1/2 c. lite coconut milk
1/2 c. pineapple juice
1/8 c. sweetened shredded coconut, plus more for garnish
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and top with additional coconut as desired.
Enjoy!
