Happy National Pina Colada day, celebrated today, Friday, July 10, 2015 apparently. Who knew? Does anyone ever wonder where half these food and drink holiday’s even start or come from? Well, I made these Blueberry Basil Banana Pina Colada Smoothie to celebrate!
Anyway, I don’t really need an excuse to celebrate the Pina Colada, but since it is National Pina Colada day, I thought I would give you a fun and delicious smoothie to quench your thirst and cure your craving for the ultimate tropical drink.
Blueberry Basil Banana Pina Colada Smoothie
for National Pina Colada Day!
Obviously this is non-alcoholic, but I guess if you wanted to add a little rum or something else, have at it.
While this smoothie has plenty of ingredients, it isn’t difficult to make at all.
Look at all that fruity deliciousness! Omg!
I freeze my herbs to use later, which makes them GREAT for adding to smoothies. Just drop a handful of frozen basil cubes and you’re ready to go. If you don’t freeze your basil, that’s ok, just add a couple of pinches of finely minced basil and a cup of regular ice cubes. Easy peasy substitution!
Oh, I also freeze bananas because frozen bananas are PERFECT for smoothies.
I just have to say, I love the specks of color through this smoothie. It is absolutely fantastic and a powerhouse of wonderful ingredients all combined into one! Enjoy!
Oh, and happy National Pina Colada day my friends! Cheers!
