Minty Pina Colada Frozen Smoothie

Coconut Milk, Frozen Pineapple and Mint 

Coconut Milk, Frozen Pineapple and Mint 

Winter may have come (GOT) but summer is still very much here in Northern California. It is has been over 100 degrees every day and only getting hotter. This frozen smoothie is absolutely the best when you are so hot you can't think of preparing a meal. If I am not going for pure coconutty pineapple flavor, I'll toss in a handful of spinach, a few slices of avocado, flax seeds and some lime for a complete meal.  The base recipe with some frozen banana is also incredibly yummy. 

the recipe: 

1/2 cup coconut milk 

1 cup frozen pineapple pieces

handful mint 

the plan: 

blend all of the ingredients in a high speed blender. add more ice if you want your smoothie even icier.
