Pina Colada Smoothie

I knew I hated coconut! I tried to make kind of a Pina Colada ice pop but it turned out NASTY!!! The blended stuff was delicious but something happened during the freezing process. I used coconut milk, crushed pineapple, pineapple juice, banana, and coconut flakes. As a smoothie it couldn't have been better, rich, smooth, creamy, and delicious. After it was frozen it was grainy and not much flavor. It also fell apart when trying to remove it from the mold. I will have start over from scratch. Here is the recipe for my Pina Colada Smoothie

Here is the recipe for my delicious (by accident) "Pina Colada" Smoothie

2 c crushed pineapple

2 c coconut milk (I used vanilla flavored full fat)
½ c of pineapple juice

½ of a banana

½ cup sweetened coconut flakes

4 teaspoons sugar
(Add rum if desired)

Throw it all in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy approx 45 seconds. Makes approx 4 - 8oz servings.

Your comments and suggestions are always welcome. But like our ice pops keep them cool and sweet. Any sour suggestions are welcome also but please keep them in good taste.
