Tropical Delight January 20 2014, 0 Comments

The tropics are on our mind.  We are in the midst of winter, but we can’t help thinking about lying on far away beaches sipping on some exotic fruit drink.  So the best we can do while we wait for warmer weather, is to make a delicious tropical smoothie.  


1 cup non-fat milk

1 cup greek yogurt, plain, vanilla or honey

1 ½ cups ice cubes

1 banana (if frozen, leave out some of the ice)

1 mango, about 1 cup chopped

⅛ cup unsweetened coconut

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon honey

chia seeds (optional)


Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth, about 3 minutes. Serve with chia seeds additional coconut and chopped mango if desired.
