Another cold winter day, thank goodness it's already March. I am counting down the days until warm weather again. We ventured out into the cold and took our daughter skiing. After a long morning, we got back to our warm home and I was craving one thing. No, not hot chocolate...pina coladas, of course. All I crave this time of year are three things: Bob Marley, pina coladas and Hawaii.
Here is my mid-day, child-friendly, clean eating recipe for a pina colada.
PINEAPPLE COCONUT SMOOTHIE - CLEAN EATING
1/2 cup fresh squeezed pineapple
1 cup chopped pineapple
1 cup coconut milk
honey (optional) or sweetener of choice
ice, about 1/2 cup
Pineapple on sale $1.88, three is better than one.
Cut off the sides and slice across the pineapple and through the core three times. Then cut the core off the six long pieces. The core runs down the middle and it is hard.
whipped coconut cream with toasted coconut flakes.
Blend and serve immediately.
Learning to ski...
Heading to the bunny hill...
When we got home I had to protect this little girl from the other squirrels...they attacked her :(
She was able to eat in peace with the birds late in the afternoon (with my watchful eye on her at all times). I wish I could knit her a warm little squirrel sweater.
