Boy, how old is this post! Time to get it off the draft shelf:
Just got our new Vita Mix in the mail! We were super excited so we made a yummy homemade pina colada to celebrate. We got a fresh young coconut and pineapple from whole foods – the guy who worked there was so nice, he helped us pick out good ones and even cut the pineapple in half for us. I give this a 3.5/5 happy monkeys because I looove pina coladas, but I still want to perfect the recipe.
– fresh pineapple
– fresh young coconut
– fresh young coconut water
– shredded dried coconut,
– bit of orange juice
Throw in Vita Mix and blend away. Enjoy!
Next time: I would use water instead of oj because oj has too strong of a sweet, oj taste. Also, wouldn’t use the shredded coconut because it made it kind of gritty. Also I want to experiment with regular fresh coconut, instead of the young ones to see if that gives it a different flavor.
