Thirsty Thursdays

It is Thursday, and while it isn’t quite yet the weekend it does not mean we can’t enjoy it like it is! This segment is dedicated to my college days where it was one hundred percent acceptable to go out on Thursday even though you had Friday morning classes. For the entire month of February, we’ll be whipping up fun drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic alike!

Piña colada

Now, this is the perfect drink to have in your hands when you’re on a beach but seeing as it’s a Thursday in February that seems very unlikely. Piña coladas are from Puerto Rico which I think is the perfect place to imagine yourself in as you make your Thirsty Thursday cocktail.

Ingredients needed:

50 milliliters of white rum

50 mililiters of pineapple juice

1 tablespoon of coconut cream

6-7 chunks of pineapples

2 teaspoons of Kelapo Coconut Oil (melted)

1 teaspoon of sugar

Ice

Now this is very simple, add all your ingredients into the blender and blend away! You’ll want to blend until it becomes a smooth consistency. Add more ice if need be. If you want to make this piña colada virgin, then that’s perfectly fine! Add 2 cups of pineapple juice and ¾ cup of coconut cream instead of the amounts above. Keep all other ingredients as is and then pop it all in the blender!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake

I found this recipe by accident and thought it would be the perfect drink if you’ve had a stressful day and wanted to indulge is something sweeter. This recipe is also made Kelapo 50/50 Blend of Coconut Oil and Ghee which we all know the amazing benefits to coconut oil, but what about ghee? Ghee is a great dairy alternative because it doesn’t have the common dairy allergens we usually find in butter.

Ingredients needed:

1 large ripe banana

2 tablespoons of salted natural peanut butter

1-2 whole dates

1 tablespoon of cacao powder

1 to 1 ½ cups of almond milk

1 tablespoon of Kelapo 50/50 blend with Coconut Oil and Ghee

1 ½ cup of ice

Gather all your ingredients, except the almond milk, and add them into the blender. While turning on the blender you’ll want to slowly add the almond milk ½ cup at a time. If you want a thinner shake, add more almond milk and if you want a thicker shake then add less almond milk. Taste the flavor and make sure the sweetness is to your liking, if not feel free to add more banana or dates! Add more peanut butter for saltiness. If you have some left over, then this would also be a great idea for popsicles!

Peace, love and Kelapo ♥
