Imagine reclining in a hammock on the beach on a deserted tropical island. The waves wash gently along the shore, mingling with the call of sea birds and the splash of dolphins near shore to create a sort of music. This would be a perfect vacation – if only the sun wasn’t beating down so hard! You feel like you’re about to be fried. How to remedy this problem? Go into the beachside villa and make yourself a decadent, refreshing smoothie!
Tropical Chocolate Paradise Smoothie
“It’s a perfect blend of the tart and the sweet.” – my Mom, who let me make one for her after I had one and recommended it. (This was a shock, since she usually only wants a peanut butter smoothie.)
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup raspberries
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 Yoplait chocolate mousse style yogurt
- 1 tbsp apricot pineapple jam
- 1/2 cup orange slices, fresh or frozen (I froze my own orange)
- 6 ice cubes (if orange slices are fresh not frozen)
Put all ingredients in blender. Blend for at least a minute, then stir. If there are still fruit chunks in the smoothie, blend another thirty seconds.
When done blending, sit back, relax and enjoy!
