Piña Colada Smoothie
serves 2
1 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1 cup light coconut milk
1 frozen, sliced banana (I like to slice my bananas then pop them in the freezer so they’re ready to use in smoothies)
1/4 cup ice cubes
2 teaspoons honey
pineapple wedges, for garnish

Combine all of the ingredients (except the pineapple wedge garnish) in your blender.  Blend until smooth.  You can add ice if you want a thicker smoothie or milk if you want a thinner consistency (for the record, I liked it exactly as written).  Garnish with pineapple wedges, if desired, and serve.
