It’s another cloudy rainy day here today, and I’m really in need of some sunshine. I decided the best way to get it would be to create it in a drink. So after looking in the freezer and finding some pineapple and mango chunks, I decided to make a Pineapple, Mango and Orange Juice Smoothie. Delicious! Now if I only had some sand and water maybe I could feel like I was on a tropical island…
I’m beginning to really enjoy smoothies, they are healthy, filling, quick to make and provide you with a good dose of vitamins. What’s really great is that you can use fresh or frozen fruit, just open your refrigerator or freezer and take a look at what you have, you can create so many different variations depending on what you have on hand. I actually prefer the texture of smoothies when I use frozen fruit. It makes it so thick and creamy, it feels like you are having a frozen treat!
Here is my recipe for sunshine in a glass.
