Guest Post: The Honey Bear Smoothie

Hello and happy spring fellow bloggers! Today I am so thrilled to share a post form Kendra Thornton that brings us all a fabulous smoothie for spring! Her expertise on family and fun is more than welcome on Bargain Bites, and we all can only hope she shares more! 

The Honey Bear Smoothie: Start spring off Right!

On a former trip to Las Vegas with my husband, I came across some fabulous foodie finds! Upon arrival at the Cosmopolitan, ranked amongst some of the best hotels in Las Vegas, to find a delicious meal I was delighted to take home my very own treat to share with my family back home in Chicago.

It was from my poolside service that I tried their signature drink, the Honey Bear Smoothie. This catchy title tastes just as yummy as it sounds and I think it is the perfect drink the welcome in the spring months and warmer weather! My kids absolutely love it and the best part about it is it is frugally friendly and easy to make!

The Honey Bear Smoothie:


- 1 cup Coconut Milk
- 3-4 Ice Cubes (crushed)
- 2 tbsp. of Peanut Butter
- 1/2 Tbsp. of Honey
- 1 Banana (a frozen banana will make the shake thicker!)
- 2 tsp. of Cinnamon (more cinnamon can be added if you are like me and love it!)


Add in the coconut milk and ice cubes in a blender.  Blend until nice and smooth and frothy.  Chop the banana and add to the blender with the peanut butter.  After combined, blend in the honey and cinnamon on the low setting.  Do a quick taste test, and if you are anything like me, add more cinnamon!

I hope you welcome in spring with this fabulous treat and enjoy it just as much as my
family and I do!
