What Suntan Lotion Tastes Like
After I was four or 5, 7-Eleven had a Piña Colada slurpees for the summer time. I keep in mind getting one and pondering to myself, “That is what suntan lotion should style like!” I at all times felt compelled to eat suntan lotion, you see, as a result of it smelled like one thing that needs to be eaten. So this was very thrilling for me. I’ve beloved that mixture of pineapple and coconut ever since. It at all times jogs my memory of summertime and the seaside and happiness. In reality, I feel it’s truly inconceivable to drink a Piña Colada and really feel sad.
Concerning the Recipe
It’s been some time since I’ve posted a breakfast shake, so I figured it was time to do one other. Everybody loves a straightforward, wholesome breakfast, proper? And through the summer time, breakfast in chilly smoothie type is at all times a bonus. Nicely, not less than for me, it’s. The factor that makes this a breakfast shake as an alternative of a daily smoothie is the oatmeal. (And superb, I may have referred to as these oatmeal smoothies, however smoothies for breakfast are a yawn. Shakes for breakfast, that’s thrilling! Rebellious, even!) I wish to let the oats sit in liquid for just a little bit to melt them up—should you’re making these shakes for breakfast, you may mix the oats and liquid the night time earlier than. There’s rather less oatmeal on this Piña Colada Breakfast Shake than there may be in my different recipes, however solely as a result of I like my breakfasts just a little bit lighter in the summertime.
The coconut taste on this smoothie comes from unsweetened coconut flakes. That is one in every of my new favourite elements to mess around with. I find it irresistible in smoothies, muffins, in a single day oats—no matter! You may even use it to make your individual coconut milk. The explanation I’ve used coconut flakes as an alternative of canned or refrigerated coconut milk is that the flakes add far more of a coconutty taste to the smoothie. And also you need this to be coconutty!
I additionally used coconut water on this smoothie, however actually, you need to use any liquid you want—any sort of milk you could have available (almond milk can be scrumptious!), juice, rum, no matter! I simply occurred to have coconut water available from Bestowed Field and since my husband and I don’t like consuming it straight, I often use it in smoothies. Oh, and since individuals at all times ask, YES you may add protein powder to this! Go wild!
