Pineapple Rum Smoothie (Pineapple Buganda)

Serves     4


This is a traditional Ugandan recipe for a classic cocktail smoothie made from a blend of pineapple, brown sugar, milk, light rum and ice.

6 ounces fresh pineapple, chopped (save a few pieces for garnish)
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup 2 percent milk, (or coconut milk, recommended)
½ cup light rum
1 tsp vanilla extract
handful ice cubes
pineapple wedges for garnish


Combine all ingredients through ice cubes in a blender and process until smooth. Top with pineapple wedge.


Notes: Although the recipe calls for 2 percent milk I personally think it would taste better using canned coconut milk, the unsweetened variety should be fine in this case.
