  • Hello, my dears! I’m Amy from My 3 Monsters. I am super excited to be a part of the Hello Summer series here at I Heart Nap Time. I love Jamielyn’s blog so this is a real honor. I’ll be honest, it feels a little bit like being asked to sit at the grown-up table at Thanksgiving! I keep thinking, “Do they know that I don’t belong here?! I’ll try my best to not spill anything while I’m here.

    Today I wanted to share one of my favorite things in the summertime — Piña Colada Smoothies!! Something about the blend of coconut and pineapple and creamy goodness just screams SUMMER to me. I’m not much of a swimmer, but I don’t mind sitting by the pool while my kids swim if I have a good book and a Piña Colada smoothie in hand. What I love about these smoothies is that you can make your own smoothie “kits” and keep them in your freezer so a piña colada is always just a few seconds away.

     

    You will need:
    1 can of crushed pineapple {in real juice}
    2 small cartons of vanilla greek yogurt  {Toasted coconut vanilla is delicious in this if your local grocery store carries it!}
    1 can of sweetened coconut milk
    milk
     
    Let’s get to it! Create your smoothie “kits” by making yogurt and pineapple ice cubes. Spoon your yogurt and pineapple {juice and all} into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid. You should get 6 yogurt cubes from each container of yogurt and 18-21 pineapple cubes out of your can.

    Once the cubes are frozen, place 4 yogurt cubes and 6 or 7 pineapple cubes into a freezer bag. You’ll get 3 smoothie “kits” out of this recipe and each kit makes 2 smoothies.
     
    To make the smoothies:
     
    Dump the contents of one “kit” into your blender. Add 2/3 cup of sweetened coconut milk and 1 cup of regular milk. {If you can’t find sweetened coconut milk, just stir some sugar into your regular coconut milk until it is as sweet as you like.}  Blend until smooth, adding a little extra milk if it’s too thick, and serve. Easy cheesy and super delicious!

    I love that there is no ice in this recipe to water it down. The frozen pineapple and yogurt cubes mean each smoothie is packed with flavor!! Now that I have smoothie kits in my freezer I’m set to hang out at the pool all summer long! Thanks so much to Jamielyn for letting me share this recipe today. Have a great summer everyone!
