We've been talking about favorite recipes a lot lately so here are some of my favorite drinks (these are all blender drinks):

Pineapple Passion

1 can (20 oz) crushed pineapple
9 oz any tropical fruit juice
9 oz ice (about 1 cup)
8 oz vanilla yogurt
1 very ripe banana
2 tsp ginger (optional)

Banana Daiquiri

1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup white rum (but flavored rum like coconut is good to)
2 large ripe bananas
2 tbs sugar
2 cups ice cubes

*You can use a slice of banana on the side of the glass to garnish.*

Hot Lava (my all time favorite)

1 oz light rum
1 oz coconut rum
3 strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 ripe banana
2 oz pineapple juice
2 oz coconut milk
few ice cubes

*Blend banana, coconut milk, pineapple juice and a couple of ice cubes in blender & set aside.
*Blend Strawberries, both kinds of rum and a couple of ice cubes.
*Put strawberry mixture in cocktail glass.
*On top, slowly add the banana mixure.
*Swirl glass lightly so mixtures mingle but still stay as two seperate drinks in one glass.

If anyone tries any of these, let me know how you like them.
