Banana Faux-lada

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

I came up with this when I wanted to use up a couple of ripe bananas and I was in the mood for a Colada type drink. I didn't want to use cream of coconut or coconut milk, so this is the result. It still has the same sort of taste, but is much lighter. Since I am not a big fan of heavy creamy drinks, I actually like this better!

The shredded coconut left a slightly grainy texture despite long blending, but it was pretty minor and the taste was fabulous. I too like this much better than the heavier creamier version.
