Banana-Coconut Smoothie

I normally don't do smoothies because whenever I try, they always disappoint. Alcohol helps, but usually it just helps me forget how lame my smoothie is. However, tonight I finally made a good one. The first one I've ever made that I actually liked. And as is usually the case whenever I come up with something decent, I didn't try to measure anything out, I just eyeballed it.

This was my second try. My first try came out like they always do: lame. However, I had some bananas and juice left over and I didn't want to just throw them out, so I figured I'd have another go at it. This is what I came up with:

2 bananas, sliced and frozen
1/2 c or so each of pineapple-orange juice concentrate (undiluted) and coconut milk
A pint glass of ice cubes
70 proof coconut rum, to taste (1/2 the bottle should be sufficient)

Dump the juice, coconut milk, and bananas into a blender and whiz away until it's all good and liquefied. Add the ice and blend some more, then the rum. Give it a couple quick pulses and pour it all into a frosty mug and pat yourself on the back for a kick-ass drink.
