I’ll spare you all and not start singing the song that always comes to mind whenever some says Pina Colada. I have a beautiful singing voice so you really will be missing something wonderful. Oh what the heck I’ll just go for it: “If you like Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain……” That’s all I know from the song. I think that’s all everyone knows from the song? If I’m wrong please tell me what comes next so I can continue to sing using my beautifully in tune voice. Rose is currently covering her ears wondering why someone brought a dying cat into the building..
I do enjoy Pina Coladas. Not so sure about the second part of that lyric though.. Coconut, pineapple, what isn’t to love?
Plus, our Pina Colada mixture has bananas in it. I love me some bananas! And with 24 different health benefits of bananas I love them even more!
With winter creeping in we have created a way to transport yourself back to the beach or pool or lawn chair in the 5 feet of grass you have on your lawn. Plus, with football season in full swing you can put this healthy snack out and munch on it and daydream away while your football loving spouse/friends/family yell profanities at the T.V. My kind of snack.
For this healthy and tasty treat all you will need is:
- 1 cup cashews
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil
- 1/2 cup sliced dried pineapple
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup banana chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
- Spread cashews out on a baking dish and evenly spread the coconut oil over them.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes total, flipping them halfway. They should be slightly browned.
- Toss together the cashews, pineapple bits, coconut, and banana chips
There you have it: a tasty treat that only takes a couple of minutes that will allow you to enjoy the game just as much as the football fan you are living with. Of course you can also bring this mixture as a snack to work or school and dream of sunshine and blue skies while having to write up that paper you are working on. So if you like Pina Coladas… (don’t worry I’ll just sing it in my head this time) or if you just want a healthy treat full of delicious and health-packed foods you should make this treat!

That song always makes me thing of Shrek, one of my favorite childhood movies.
This looks so good, I could eat a lb of cashews if I thought I wouldn’t have GI distress. I love the little dish too!
Thank you! I know – cashews aren’t the friendliest nut but I love them either way.
That sounds delish! Thank you for sharing! As for the song, that is the exact and only line I know myself. I am not a fan of the song. It makes my hair stand on ends. That’s how much (utterly) I dislike it.
Thank you! 🙂 I’m not a huge fan of the song either but it always gets stuck in my head!!
