This coconut lime smoothie is a refreshing ,icy drink perfect for summer. Enjoy with or without rum.

I know smoothies have ice in them but this coconut lime smoothie is particularly “icy”, almost like a slushie.

It’s a half smoothie, half Italian ice kind of consistency with a whole lotta piña colada going on.

Mmmk?

Whip up this easy refreshing coconut lime smoothie to beat the summer heat.

These were made around 3pm on a day that I woke up to a half broken blog and proceeded to spend an inordinate amount of hours (still in my pajamas) glued to the computer, on the phone with my server tech support and deleting, reinstalling and configuring new plugins. If you have a blog, I know you can sympathize.

If you don’t, just imagine pure stress and a feeling of utter hopelessness. Here’s the thing about blogging, it doesn’t come with a manual or any (free) tech support. Shit breaks and it’s all on you. When “you” has learned everything through trial and error or past experience it can be kind of fun.

And by fun I mean completely infuriating. So yeah, that was a “fun” day.

Want to know what I could really have used after that? Some alcohol. But, since 5pm was still two hours away, I behaved and resorted to the next best thing. Coconut, lime, ginger, mint and teeny tiny bit of kefir for a tangy kick all mixed up with a ton of ice in this coconut lime smoothie.

Next time, I might try something more decadent like this coconut panna cotta or this coconut lime ice cream float.

It instantly took me to a tropical beach somewhere and my head desperately needed that. My body wouldn’t have minded it either but I haven’t figured out a food or drink that has that ability yet.

Icy Coconut smoothie with lime is refreshing and delicious for an easy summer drink.

So in conclusion, we’ve learned that blogging leads you to drink and when that isn’t possible it makes you hallucinate.

Obviously, I’ll be continuing with it.
