Pineapple Coconut Frozen Treat

I was toying with calling this “soft serve” but it didn’t feel right. It’s certainly not ice cream, and “smoothie” also kind of missed the mark. So I figured “frozen treat” was the best I could do. It’s cold. It’s a treat. So there you go.

Normally I’m not a big fruit-eater but today I was needing a bit of an afternoon fuel-up. This morning I hit up the local bootcamp gym for an hour of grueling exercise. Super fun but pretty tiring. And then I decided to unwind with an hour of heated yoga. Needless to say, I was pretty ready for a nap. So I give you my afternoon, post-nap “pick-up”.

    Super yummy! Not a fan of ginger so replaced it with cinnamon. This is a keeper!
