Can we call it Pina Colada?

pina colada
It was Friday afternoon. We love Friday afternoons, it is when everything starts to slow down. Friday afternoons are also fridge clean out time. I found a delicious pineapple! I had somehow forgotten about it, that is not like me! We are all a bit mad for this sweet, juicy fruit, and the kids and I could of happily sat on the floor and eaten it all, but next to the forgotten pineapple was forgotten coconut milk. Into the blender they went. The result was a cold, creamy smoothie that the three of us quickly devoured. It was all simply meant to be. We loved it so much that the next day when out shopping we purchased another pineapple and more coconut milk and this time they are hanging out in the freezer. We are wanting for the baby to wake so that we can all try out the icy poles together.
If the sun is shining at your place as it is here today, and you too have a ripe pineapple and some coconut milk that needs using, whip up this smoothie or make some icy poles. Be sure to let me know what you think.

Can we call it Pina Colada?

400 grams (approximately 3 cups) of fresh, cold, delicious pineapple, roughly chopped

150 grams (approximately 2/3 cup) cold, thick coconut milk

Blend until smooth and creamy. Enjoy.

The kids think they’re great.
We belnded a can of coconut cream with pineapple pieces and juice and a good squirt of honey, then poured into icy pole moulds and froze. Delish!
