How are those New Year’s Resolutions going?  My resolution to save money and make our daily smoothies at home is going well.  I’ve even come up with a few new combinations to keep the mornings exciting around here without resorting to non-compulsory sex.

One of my new favorites  is the Strawberry Pina Colada.  It is bursting with fruit and tropical flavors:  fresh strawberries and blueberries from Driscoll’s Berries, fresh pineapple chunks, and coconut flakes and milk.  The end result is a pleasing breakfast smoothie that will keep you satiated until lunch.  If you want to serve this as an adult smoothie at your next brunch, just add a little rum.
