Pina Colada Smoothie

April 14, 2016

“But Where’s The Rum?”

The Pina Colada is one of the best cocktails ever made.  It is a beautiful drink and relieves stress better than most over the counter medications.  Even this version, which does not have alcohol.  This may not be a real pina colada because there is no rum, however the coconut and fresh pineapples maintain the dreaminess of the original version.  Rum is good in moderation but pineapple and cream is fantastic in large gulps.  Also this is a great drink for Baby Showers.  No one is taking away my go to drinks when I start a family.  LOl.

This recipe was taken from Levi Roots’ Sweet (Octopus Publishing Group Ltd, 2012).

Ingredients:

400g fresh pineapple, 200g coconut cream, 200ml pineapple juice, 50g Greek yoghurt, juice of 1/2 lime, 4 tbsps demerara sugar. (Levi also recommends crushed ice to serve but it was still quite chilly the day I made this)

Method:

  1. Whizz all of the ingredients in a large blender.
  2. Scrap out the remaining smoothie with a spoon and lick off your fingers.
  3. Enjoy and don’t worry ’bout a thing.
