Tropical Smoothie


Smoothies are a summer favorite here and as the fruits come into season the flavors change. They are quick and easy to whip up in a blender or the food processor.
A refreshing treat on a hot summer day!
Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups vanilla frozen yogurt...or ice cream
1 3/4 cups vanilla yogurt
1 small banana
1 cup pineapple chunks
1/4 cup angel flake coconut
1/2 cup milk
a little splash of vanilla
Put everything in the blender and mix until smooth.
Pour into pretty glasses and serve.

    And two glasses speak of a friend to share the refreshing drink with ! Perfect !!

    I just would leave out the coconut...I don't know why but it is one of my 'not-so-favorite' tastes/textures.

  13. I'm a huge fan of yogurt based soothies. The India style of adding a sprinkle of powdered cardamom adds an extra finess too.
