Piña Colada Green Smoothie is a healthy way to fiesta!

For someone who uses a blender multiple times a day, for some odd reason, I haven’t granted it counter-worthy status. You would think that since I’m constantly pulling it out of the cabinet over and over and over again I would just wise up and leave it on display, but it’s one of those silly things I insist on doing.

That blender has served me well, though, and I can not imagine a day without it. You know how smoothies are just part of our every day! Lately, my son has been loving pineapple smoothies every day after school, and after I make his, I’ll make myself a Piña Colada Green Smoothie. It’s my little mini vacation in the middle of the day, even if it’s missing the rum (though I won’t tell if you decide to add some!).

    I do something similar, but swap out the banana (allergic) for 1/2 an chobani coconut yogurt.  Bit of a protein boost (if you are OK with dairy).
