Banana Colada Smoothie

Hola Amigos and Happy Friday to you all! Spring Break is sadly coming to an end. It was awesome to sleep in for a few hours in the morning, but oh well...it's O.K because summer days soon will be here to warm our hearts and lives with sunshine, fun and smiles!

According to the weather man, we are having a mild weekend, which for us is anything above freezing, lol, but joking aside if it's nice you need to enjoy it with a tasty smoothie! Here is my version of Pina Colada, but with the addition of frozen bananas to give it it rich, thick and smooth texture! This is by far my favorite smoothie ever...and I had made a few in my lifetime, maybe because it reminds me of the beaches in my homeland, the smell and taste of summer and puts me in Big Glasses, Big Sombrero and Vacation Mode!
Here is the recipe:
Banana Colada Smoothie

1/2 Cup Pineapple-Coconut Nectar*
1/2 Cup Milk**
1 1/2 Cup Pineapple chunks (frozen)
1 Banana (frozen)
1 TBSP Protein Powder (optional) 
In case you can't find the Pienapple Coconut nectar, here is how you can substitute it for:
* Substitute 1/2 cup Pineapple Nectar
**Substitute for 1/2 Coconut Milk

In your blender add all the liquids first with your protein powder if you are using any. Add the frozen fruit and blend until everything is smooth. If it's too thick, feel free to add a little more nectar if needed to help your blender motor.
Serve and enjoy!

Tell me you are not feeling the sand between your toes as you sip this smoothie?

Not only is delicious, but with the added protein it makes it healthier.

It's refreshing and light and you always have the option of "spike it" up if you want, I will suggest a smaller cup if you do, lol

Well my friends, wishing you a fun weekend in the company of your family and friends. Enjoy this smoothie and remember it will always taste better with a Pinch of Love!

Aloha and Besitos,
