"If You Like Pina Coladas…"

Getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean
And the taste of champagne

(Great song!)

Aaand, coincidentally enough I do like piña coladas (and the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne)!

My breakfast this morning was inspired by the above song when it came on my iPod at the gym.

I thought a piña colada sounded pretty fantastic at around 6:30 a.m., but since hanging out by the pool and sippin’ an umbrella drink wasn’t exactly on the menu today (silly full-time job…), I nixed the rum and added some protein powder to make myself a piña colada smoothie.

Smoothies Make Me Smile (And Stand Awkwardly With a Spoon in My Hand)

Into the blender went:

Totally Real Coconut Extract ;)

The result was a creamy, fragrant, stark-white smoothie.

Spoonful o' Smoothie

Sip, Sip, Sip

Though the smoothie was good, it put me in vacation mode. I want to be in the middle of a Corona commercial right now.

Questions of the Day

1. What is your favorite tropical drink?

I love piña coladas, strawberry daiquiris and mojitos.

For those of you unsure what qualifies as a tropical drink, I’d say just about any alcoholic drink with exorbitant amounts of sugar (think mai tais, bahama mamas, bay breezes, etc.).

2. If you could be anywhere on vacation right now, where would you be?

    Oohhh boy, I love fruity, summery drinks! I’d have to say that my favorite is a mix of strawberry daquiri + pina colada in one! Jay and I first tried them on our honeymoon in St. Lucia, which coincidentally is where I could LOVE to be on vacation right now! 😎

    The drink has it’s own name, but I can’t think of it for the life of me!! Has anyone else heard of this before??? It’s driving me CrAzY!
