I don’t know exactly what that means but I am translating it to a little something like this:

Oh-my-gosh-why-did-I-take-two-weeks-off-work-I-didn’t-realize-that-would-mean-that-I-would-come-back-to-a-brain-exploding-amount-of-things-to-catch-up-on.

That was my life yesterday after my nice little work break/trip to Canada.

My brain? It. Is. Fried.

Except fried doesn’t even describe it.  More like my brain is burnt toast.

And not the yummy kind of toast that includes peanut butter or honey, or Nutella. Just straight up, crunchy, crispy, black, charred burnt toast.

Side note: When I was a little girl, my cousin’s cat had kittens, and she let me name one. It was black. I named it burnt toast.

She changed the name.

I was 6, okay. Don’t judge.

Secretly though, I’m still a little bitter. I mean, how creative is that name?

Anyways.

I’m not usually a huge smoothie person…but you guys are! You loved the Chocolate Protein Smoothie so much that I decided to make you another one!

I’m pretending that I just listened to you because I am all about making you guys happy, (which I am!) but I am secretly being selfish. My toast brain can’t even handle making oatmeal right now so a fail-proof, easy smoothie is exactly what I need for breakfast.

Plus, pineapple is like the ultimate happy fruit. If I had to picture any fruit with a happy face, that is exactly what it would be. It also may be partially because the happy face emoticons are yellow and pineapples are yellow. But whatever. You understand.

Do I even have to tell you that pineapple and coconut go well together? I mean, hello, Pina coladas! Side note: I don’t know how to get the squiggle over the “n” ever since I updated to Windows 8. Are you guys on Windows 8? It’s SO CONFUSING. I miss Windows -1.  I could handle that.

      I am laughing because I TOTALLY debated adding one.
      Don’t worry…there’s one coming up ;)
      Just for you girlfriend!

    Oh. My. Yum! This sounds so delicious, I’ve never made a smoothie with just the thick portion of canned coconut milk. I bet that makes this a dream! Thanks for the easy but fresh idea, I will definitely be making this one soon!

    I took a week off last week for vacation, and even though I got ahead on things before I left, I’m still trying to get caught up! On the bright side: 1. The vacation was totally, absolutely worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat. 2. The smoothie looks delicious :)

  3. says

    Just clicked over to Whole Yum for the recipe and it looks delicious. I’ve never made a smoothie with coconut cream but I bet it’s amazing.

    Yay for tropical flavors & pretty pictures!! Which is basically your entire post. And I am ALL about pineapple and coconut these days. It’s literally all I can think about (rainy winter, go away!), and I have ummmmm 3-4 recipes involving those flavors coming up soon. I’m desperately trying to come up with other things so I don’t publish them all smooshed together! Anyway, back to you. So glad you’re home!! I’m sorry your brain is fried like crispy burnt toast, but it looks like you fit in a good workout today AND it’s almost the weekend, which means back to baking and no office work! Hip hip hooray!!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Hahaha me too! I am like “OMG I NEED MORE IDEAS….but the combo is so good!”
      I’m baking up a storm today girl…yay!

  5. says

    Wow, 2 weeks off sounds great… except for the coming back part hahaha. Sorry you have to deal with the whole catching up thing. That’s no fun.

    I personally think burnt toast is a fantastic pet name. I’m thinking about getting a cat now JUST so I can name it that.

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Well thank you for the sympathy! It was my own doing anyway :)
      And I’m glad you like the pet name, I thought it was highly original!

    I hate when work gets so busy, you almost feel like you don’t want to go on vacation. But in the long run, vacations are the best! And this smoothie?! Hello, perfect early morning breakfast. I leave the house before coherent thought is possible so these would be perfect for me!

    • Taylor Kiser says

      Yes! It’s just the worst feeling, but you are right…vacays are needed!
      Haha @ coherent thought! Glad you like ‘em Kim! :)

  7. says

    I just found out my girlfriend is a huge fan of pineapple smoothies, so I will definitely pass this recipe along to her.
    We recently came back from a trip to South Carolina; I find vacations to be much needed…I just wish it was easier to switch from vacation mode to work mode!
