Banana Cream Colada
5 shots out of 5
First off, I want to apologize for not doing something that I wanted to do......which you never knew about............but I feel I should apologize. Today is St. Patrick's Day and I wanted to have posted some of my favorite "green" cocktails for you all to look through a couple days ago. Then baseball games, soccer games and a double birthday party I hosted last night all got in the way. Instead I decided that since it's such beautiful weather out today, I would pull out my blender and use one of our banana's and just create a nice blended cocktail.
I gave today's cocktail 5 shots out of 5. This cocktail is banana-ey, so if you're not a huge banana fan you might not want to try this one. I LOVE this one and since I was totally in the mood for banana's, I love this one even more today. I did end up adding pineapple juice to this cocktail because at first (even for me) it was a bit too banana-ey. In this cocktail the banana, coconut and pineapple flavors all mix pretty darn well together (which they usually do) and the vanilla ice cream gives it a bit of a creamy flavor which is nice.
Here is my recipe for a Banana Cream Colada:
- 2 oz coconut rum
- 1 small banana
- 1/2 oz banana liqueur
- 1 1/2 oz pineapple juice
- 1 oz cream of coconut
- 1/2 C vanilla ice cream
- 1/2 C ice
In a blender, add all of the ingredients above. Blend until your ice is gone and everything is mixed in well.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all. I hope you are wearing your green so that you don't get pinched!!
