Saturday Salute: The Perfect Pina Colada

coconut-drink-645
We’d call this one a “skinny” pina colada, but that might read girly, which this cocktail is most-certainly not.

raw-magic-shell1
What’s better than chocolate? “Healthy” chocolate…and ice cream. And it really does taste better, too. Seriously. Using the base from the banana bowl (i.e., a frozen banana made into ice cream) and raw cacao, you end up with a treat that is raw, packed with antioxidants, AND scrumdiddlyumptious.
