It's the kind of summer day that makes me want to sit on the deck, watch the kids play in the yard, and forget about all of the laundry and house work.  Or jet to a beach somewhere, but let's just say that's not happening this week.  And of course if I'm lounging on the deck I'd like to be drinking a pina colada.  But it's 11 in the morning, so I made a pina colada green smoothie instead.  I even got lazy and used a pile of pre-washed salad greens in this because summer's all about relaxing and taking it easy.  And this is so much tastier than a salad!

  • 1 cup salad greens (or use spinach)
  • 1 collard green leaf
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup pineapple
  • 1 cup unsweetened, light canned coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp rum extract
  • 14-1/2 tsp coconut extract (depending on how much you like coconut)
  • dash of cinnamon
  • handful of ice
1.  Place the cucumber in a high speed blender , followed by the rest of the ingredients.  Blend until smooth.  Put your feet up and enjoy summer!
