This pina colada recipe is especially healthy. It will fit into any Paleo diet.

Whenever I stumble upon a concoction that has absolutely no added sweetener and still tastes like a frozen dessert I do cartwheels on the inside and squeal like a 14-year-old... on the outside.

I have no shame.

This one in particular made me nostalgic for a treat my grandma would make for us when we'd come to visit. She blended a frozen pina colada Bacardi mix with some bananas a milk, and we happily slurped down the entire pitcher. Mmm.

My paleo version isn't 75% corn syrup and contains no dairy, despite being rich and creamy. (Hooray!) All you need are three ingredients: bananas, fresh pineapple, and coconut milk.

The trick to getting that soft-serve consistency is freezing the bananas and pineapple and using either a powerful blender or a food processor to blend it.

I love this little smoothie/sorbet thing. I'm not sure how to classify it, but it's just the thing to calm my sweet tooth during detox months. Or any month for that matter.
