tropical smoothie

sweet tropical flavors disappear quickly!

This morning we were all a little sluggish after celebrating Ryan's Winter Concert.  It was a lovely evening with impressive efforts made by the young musicians at the middle school.  Perhaps most impressive was how attentive a listener Ethan was!

Anyway - breakfast needed to be a simple affair hence our reliable smoothie formula (see super simple smoothies post) - this time with a tropical twist.  I rely on these so often, especially in the winter months when I am reaching for ways to pump up the vitamin quotient in our foods.  I put 1 T flaked Chia Seeds (Mila) into mine for extra energy.  Get those blenders out!

Tropical Smoothie

1 overripe banana, sliced
1/2 c frozen pineapple, papaya (I used a Dole blend)
1/2 vanilla yogurt
1 c orange juice
1 T local honey

Cougar (our Maine Coon Cat)

Blend till smooth.  My kids love theirs with a bendy straw.  Happy Sipping!
