For the past few weeks I’ve been making Janine a smoothie every day when she gets home from work.

Here’s the next smoothie: The Pina Colada Smoothie. Refreshing, clean, and tropical, every sip is a mini-vacation to the Caribbean!

Pina Colada Smoothie Recipe

Note: Making a smoothie is not like baking a cake. Measurements of ingredients is very rough and should be adjusted depending on your taste- just add as much as you like and blend it up!

Fresh Pineapple (about 1/2)
Coconut Cream (about 1/2 cup)
Coconut Water (1 cup)
Frozen Banana
Ice (a few cubes)
Fancy Garnish with a little umbrella (this part is important)

1. Chop up the pineapple. Add coconut cream and coconut water. (If you’ve never had coconut water, you must try it! It comes in individual cans, like canned soft drinks, and it is so refreshingly delicious!)
2. Microwave frozen banana for 20 seconds or so until it is soft enough to squeeze out of the skin.
3. Blend. Add Ice as desired.
4. Garnish.
Serves 2.

The Smoothie Solution

Janine used to be cranky, tired, thirsty, and hungry when she first came home, but instead of sitting down, resting, and eating or drinking, she would bustle around the house, cleaning up after the kids (and me). Then she’d be desperate for dinner, which I usually hadn’t even started cooking yet (since I had also just finished my work day).

One day I realized the solution: I would hand her a tasty smoothie when she came in the door from work, it might help keep her happy until dinner. Thus, the Smoothie Solution was born.

About James Moffett

I'm married to Janine and constantly amazed at her energy and enthusiasm, not only as it relates to her running! This year I've started to run again (after a long hiatus) as I pursue a personal goal to get "Fit by Forty". I'm a web designer by day and I'm the guy who makes this site work, and the guy to blame when it isn't working. I'm especially excited that Janine and I have been able to combine our interests (running and web design) for this site!
