Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen pineapple chunks (or one 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, in juice)
  • 1 ripe banana , medium
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk , or as desired for consistency (or your favorite milk; coconut milk is excellent here)
  • 1 1/2 ounces Coconut Rum , optional
  • 1 teaspoon Stevia or sweetener of your choice , optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon Coconut Extract
  • 2 cups Crushed Ice
  • Mint leaves and fresh cherries for garnishing , optional

Instructions

  • Add pineapple chunks, banana, almond milk, coconut rum (if using), sweetener (if using), and coconut extract (if using) in a blender. Pulse until smooth. Take a quick taste and see if you want to add anything, like more sweetener.
  • Once the flavor is right, add the crushed ice and pulse until smooth and frothy texture forms.
  • Serve in cocktail glasses. Garnish with mint leaves, fresh cherries, or pineapple pieces. Umbrellas add a nice touch too.

Notes

* If you're using the coconut rum, you may not need the coconut extract.
*So, to make this non-alcoholic, use the coconut extract instead.
