Here in the wonderful Midwest, it’s been cold, snowy, and just plain dreary. I can’t express enough how much I am ready for warmer weather. I could really use a vacation to a beach, but I will settle with flip-flop weather here.
In desperate need for that weather, I am thinking of all things tropical right now. When I think about being somewhere warmer, my feet in the sand, and just relaxing, I often think of myself sipping on a fruity drink. One that bursts with flavors of pineapple, mango, and/or coconut.
One thing that gives me that nice refreshing taste is new Simply Tropical Juice Drink. With all-natural ingredients, including real fruit juice, it also contains no added preservatives, colors, or artificial flavors. I like to enjoy a glass in the afternoon while I am working. I may glance over and see the snow outside covering everything, but I know there is hope for warmer weather soon.
To take the tropical flavors to another level, I thought it would be perfect for tasty afternoon smoothie.
To get started I added some of the Simply Tropical Juice Drink in half an ice tray, along with some vanilla yogurt on the other half. I can keep the cubes in my freezer, so I can easily make one of these at any time, with little hassle.
- 3 cubes frozen Simply Tropical Juice Drink
- ½ cup Simply Tropical Juice Drink (not frozen)
- ½ banana, sliced (can be frozen)
- ½ coconut milk
- 3 cubes frozen vanilla yogurt
- Add all ingredients to a blend. Blend until smooth.
A little tropical smoothie that I like to make for myself, instead of the kids. Even though my five year old is a fan, and has requested it a few times.
Along with the Simply Tropical, the Simply Juice Drinks line also includes Simply Fruit Punch and Simply Mixed Berry. All great as a drink for any time of the day, or to use in cocktails, mocktails, smoothies, and more.
