A perfect smoothie to go with this tropical weather we’re having over here. Easy as pie and the piña colada flavor really comes through.
1/2 frozen banana, sliced
1 1/2 c frozen pineapple chunks
1/4 c packed sweetened coconut flakes
1 tsp hemp seeds
1 2/3 c coconut water
Transfer everything to your blender and puré until smooth. You can add a little extra hemp over the top.
I am a former professional chef, restaurateur, wine specialist and cooking class instructor. I have had the pleasure of working for many upscale restaurants under very prominent chefs as I worked my way to the top and began running my own kitchens and restaurants as executive sous chef, chef, and restaurant GM. I have helped build many restaurants and taverns as well as written award winning menus. My work has been featured in places like: Scene magazine, Houston Post and several Austin papers. I have cooked for politicians and celebrities alike as well as been a guest speaker at various culinary arts classes and taught hundreds of novice cooks and children how to create beautiful dishes and the right tools to use.
