Dessert delivered with a straw

Couldn't be bothered to garnish it
I was craving something sweet. I don't really do desserts, but after some scrounging around, I created a grown-up goodie in a glass, rated M for Mmm, yummy. It's amazing what you can create with stuff in your freezer and fridge. 

When any kind of fruit is getting pretty ripe, freeze it on a tray with parchment or silicone sheet in non-touching pieces for a few hours, then add to your large Ziploc bag of handy fruit pieces. I freeze every kind of berry, grape, mango, pear - nothing is safe from my freezer drawer. Oh, and bananas - at any given time I usually have about 12 of them ready to be pressed into service. 

Let's call this Grown-up Go-to Dessert in a Glass

Put in a blender:
1 1/2 frozen bananas
3/4 cup or so of frozen pineapple chunks
1/3 cup of coconut water
1/3 cup of coconut rum
2 tablespoons of half and half
1 liberal dash of cayenne pepper (optional)

Blend, and add more coconut water if needed to thin it out. 

Pour into a glass of your choice, throw in a straw and go to town. Nighty night. 

Bonus Tip: always have straws on hand, even if you're not a straw household. You never know when you or a guest will need them for drinks or crafts or during hurricane season.
