Pina-Colada Smoothie (Throwback Thursday)

June of 2011 I wrote:  A Pina-Colada Smoothie screams summer.  Can't you just imagine yourself sipping this cool drink pool side?  Well, I've got 90 degree weather and no pool so I guess I'll just enjoy what I can have... this  refreshing drink.   I made my version non-alcoholic, but you can always add some rum and have yourself a little party.


2-3 cups cleaned and cored pineapple
2-3 cups unsweetened coconut milk (not canned)

1/2 cup ice cubes
splash of rum (optional)
Sweetener (see note) 

Note:  you can also add sugar, honey or agave syrup to sweetened your drink if you like.  My pineapple was very sweet for me, but my husband wanted his with a little sugar. I personally like mine with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.  I suggest if you like it with a squeeze of lime you add it to your glass and not the whole pitcher.

Blend all ingredients in a blender with the pineapple until it's a smooth drink and serve.   Makes about 4 servings.
