Low Fat Pina Colada Smoothie {No Sugar Added} & More...



Another wonderful and refreshing recipe from Brenda at Sugar-Free Mom 
Lowfat Pina Colada Smoothie (No Sugar Added). She shares many awesome recipes there and some wonderful healthy-eating information. 
Please swing by and tell her I said hello. 

This kind of healthy drink is one terrific way to begin your day! 

I keep sliced bananas stocked in the freezer all the time so I'm always ready to whip up a fruit smoothie.

I nearly ran to the kitchen to make this one after first seeing it!

EASY PEASY - you can't go wrong!

It's soo yummy too - you can pretend you're on a tropical island sitting by the ocean while enjoying this tasty treat.  {I'll be dreaming of sitting on the veranda at my brother's villa in St. Kitts}

Following Brenda's instructions, one serving is only 100 calories. 
Enjoy it every day if you'd like!!!



LOWFAT PINA COLADA SMOOTHIE 
{NO SUGAR ADDED}

2 c. fresh or frozen pineapple chunks
(I know fresh is always best, but I used canned in its own juice)
1 c. unsweetened canned coconut milk, light
1 banana
1 c. ice, crushed somewhat
optional: 1 tsp. rum extract
topping: unsweetened, shredded coconut flakes

In a blender, blend all ingredients until smooth.  Top with coconut flakes and enjoy.  Don't drink too quickly cause you'll freeze your brain!
