Welcome Spring!!!!

Last Friday marked the first day of Spring!!!! To welcome this beautiful season I made a tropical smoothie.  My smoothie has banana, pineapple, orange juice, and ice, but you can use whatever you have on hand.  Almost any combination works so EXPERIMENT! I used fresh fruit for this one, but frozen fruit works just as well, and depending on how slushy you like your drink, sometimes even better! So the next time you see frozen fruit on sale, stock up! Smoothies are great for a healthy breakfast, snack, or a fun drink when entertaining company. 
Tip: Add a shot of rum to make this drink even more festive!
Tip: Add yogurt to add calcium and a more smooth and velvety texture.

ow, that's a good idea. I have grapes, some apples and some bananas. Hope that goes on well. I think grapes need not be crushed. What do you say?

hey wait, go to Linkwithin where you will get a beautiful 'related posts' widget for your blog. I think your blog is perfect for that widget.

Those flavours taste great together but apples are a little difficult to make into a smoothie unless you add the their flavour with an apple puree or apple juice. Yeah solid grapes floating in the drink would look great!!! The colour contrast would be beautiful!

Thanks for the link! When I get more recipes under my belt on the site ill add it!
