Pina Colada Smoothie

Missing summer? We all of a sudden had a return of the hot temperatures reminiscent of August rather than September. While I love the fall and its crisp weather and pretty leaves, I was glad summer decided to make one last appearance. I though this recipe would be perfect to say farewell to summer until next year.

The nutrition information for this recipe is based on using 1/2 fat ice cream. I have been having trouble finding fat free ice cream for some reason, but if you have it, I am sure it would be fine in this recipe.
