I had a couple of ripe bananas that no one wanted to eat, so I needed to use them somehow. I didn't want to make another banana bread. A smoothie sounded wonderful though. A banana smoothie with toasted coconut sounded even better! :) So, here it is! Enjoy!
-1/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes
-2 cups crushed ice cubes
-1/2 cup milk
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1 tsp vanilla extract
In a small skillet, toast the coconut. Make sure to not burn it. Save a little to top your glass, then pour the toasted coconut into your blender. Add remaining ingredients. Mix until well blended. Pour into glass, top with the remaining coconut and enjoy!
