Drink of the Week: Pina Colada Smoothies

August 29, 2011 No Comments by Nicole

Around this time of year, I start dreaming of exotic vacations.  Laying out on the beach, eating anything I want to, drinking frozen concoctions, trying to decide whether or not to get a massage by a cabana boy named Ricardo. Unfortunately this is not my reality. So I drink things like this. Only with more rum.

Did I mention this would be a great drink for a destination wedding?
