But fun.

A good weekend planned over here, fiends. How about you? Today is a shopping day, followed by an evening of listening to Seamus play drums with a jazz band here in town. Tomorrow is a Cleveland jaunt, followed by smoothies and conversation with BFF Kay and Bob. And speaking of smoothies…I modified a recipe I saw on the web and came up with this little gem:

Luau Smoothie
About a cup of fresh pineapple
One banana

1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (I used the pineapple flavor from Dannon)
Spinach leaves
A couple drops of coconut extract

You can use fresh coconut, too, but I didn’t have any on hand.

Now, truth be told — I haven’t tried this, so I don’t know if you’ll need to add a bit of crushed ice or water for your desired consistency. It’s still sitting there on the counter, just like in the photo. The Thriller isn’t up yet, and I want it to be fresh.

*drumming fingers on desk*  EDIT: Best. Smoothie. Ever.

I hope you have some fun planned for this weekend. If you can share, tell! I’m off to make some unintentional noise. I’m hungry.

I might try a few mandarin oranges in there too. hmmmm…. Have a WUN-derful weekend! PK Nom. Nom. ReplyRat Fink Reply:April 13th, 2013 at 3:02 pmMandarins would be great in it! I have a box of “Cuties” in my fridge…I should do that tomorrow morning. I added probably 1/8 cup water, and I could have easily done without it. The pineapple was fine, yep. Hope you’re… Read more »
