It's Dessert Monday over here on the blog. However, I'm bending the rules a little today and have decided to share this lovely recipe with y'all instead.
Smoothies. Yummmm! I cannot think of a better way to cool down after a long, hot summer day. Temperatures over here in Louisiana are up to 100 degrees, with heat indexes of 105 and higher. This refreshing drink is just what the doctor ordered to chase away that horrible heat wave.
I came across this concoction while on vacation to Colorado in May. My sister and I made this, but changed around a few things. If you are looking for a smoothie recipe to make this summer, this is the one! It only requires 5 ingredients and there is no chopping or slicing required ;) It's all very simple. Just combine all the ingredients and blend until smooth. Doesn't get any easier (and yummier) then that folks! Try it and see for yourself ;)
Sunshine Pineapple Coconut Smoothie
3 cups cubed frozen pineapple chunks
1/4 cup honey
1 cup light coconut milk
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 cup fresh pineapple juice
Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
**Libby's Notes: You can use other fruit such as bananas and strawberries (fresh or frozen) to the mix as well.
