Pina Colada Smoothie

Since I was never really a drinker, I would always get a virgin pina colada when given the opportunity. It’s got to be one of the best beverage concoctions ever! There is no better liquid combination than pineapple and coconut. It’s also the only flavor combo I would ever get at a smoothie shop. It’s ridiculous the amount of money people spend at those places when it’s so stupid-easy to make this stuff at home. I can NEVER find frozen pineapple at my grocery store, so I use the evil canned stuff. I could get the fresh stuff, but it’s either out of season or too pricey. But when it’s on sale, I totally get it and use that, because you can’t beat that fresh pineapple taste.

I would say that drinking this smoothie reminds me of being on a beach, because that’s what people expect, right? But I seriously hate the beach (how’s that for a born and raised Florida girl?). So thinking of the beach while drinking this would not be enjoyable at all. So I just drink it and think about whatever it is I’m doing, enjoying where I am and not where some drink wants me to be.
