Coconut Ginger Smoothie

I can’t tell you how many times that I have made this smoothie in the past couple of weeks.  I also can’t tell you how many times I have made this smoothie while dancing around to the piña colada song.  Too many times.  That song is now burned into my brain.

 

Consider this the after-work or weekend drink for those that don’t drink cocktails. This smoothie is like a healthy piña colada without the heavy coconut cream or pinapple.  It’s sweet with a bit of spiciness from the ginger.  (If you are not a fan of ginger, then you can easily decrease the amount or leave it out entirely.)

 

This smoothie is wonderful at a mocktail party, for post-workout hydration, or for any time you are in need of a fancy, but-not-so-fancy refreshment.  If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, this one is for you.
