We were headed to our favorite ice cream place for family night this week when we passed a yummy looking shaved ice booth. We flipped a U and came back around to give it a try. I had the Strawberry Banana Colada and boy was it good!
Since our family night, I have been thinking about how amazing my Strawberry Banana Colada was. Then I figured out a way to recreate it…only healthier by using real fruit.
VERY IMPORTANT- pour Coco Lopez in a bowl and mix/stir it before using.
Side note- I love my BlendTec Blender-seriously they are amazing. It continually knocks my socks off by how powerful and yet controlled it is. It has a perfect setting for blending beverages and other things like soups, dressings, etc. It’s amazing!
I was so excited to create a recipe that tasted very much like the Strawberry Banana Colada I got from the shaved ice stand! It is best served immediately.
My son guzzled it down, and the Guatemalans who are helping us lay sod loved it too.
