Mango Colada

This recipe is from my most favorite cooking website (the picture is from their website also). This was really, really yummy! Cream of coconut is a dream! (you can find it in the alcoholic drink mixers aisle) This would be good too without the pineapple, or even just do a lime/coconut colada. Talk about yummy!!

1 c mango cubes (about 1 mango)
Generous 1/2 c. of pineapple chunks and juice (or syrup) together
Juice of 1 lime
1/3 c cream of coconut (NOT coconut milk)-we added even more!
Crushed ice
pinch of sugar to your liking (we added this)

-Mix all in blender and mix thoroughly until no chunks. Add as much or as little ice as you like.

I've got to try this one! I have some mangos right now that are smelling up my kitchen because I didn't use them in time (don't you hate that?)and I love the smell! Who needs a candle when you have over ripe fruit in the kitchen?
