Pina-colada smoothie for children (Non-alcoholic)

The weather has now got considerably warmer and spring is in the air. With April showers starting on time we are very much looking forward to a wonderful summer, fingers crossed! Mean while, Naz commented that I was teasing him with the pineapple rasam last night and now he feels to have something cold with pineapple. Anjalie asked for a smoothie tonight and I decided to please them both with a pina-colada smoothie. This recipe below is for the whole family including children so I have skipped alcohol and sugar. But you can add it in yours if you wish. This definitely was very much appreciated tonight and was very refreshing without being overwhelming, so, would be a perfect summer drink.

You will need:
200 grams of pineapple chunks
1-2 scoops of coconut ice-cream (for home-made recipe, look here)
125-150 ml milk
ice cubes as needed
caster sugar/honey to taste (optional)
1-2 tsp dessicated coconuts (skip if your child does not like bits).

Add pineapple chunks in a blended and just blend into rough paste.

Add the rest of the ingredients and blend well.

Serve chilled and enjoy!
