Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya…to the Florida Keys….there’s a place called kokomo…that’s where we wanna go….Oh don’t mind me, I was just wishing for warmer climates. See, we’ve had a bit of a cold snap here in Tennessee and it has me longing for the warmth of the tropics. Since that’s not happening any time soon, I decided to bring the tropics to me, in smoothie form. This smoothie was just what I needed on a dreary rainy day….sweet and fruity and reminded me of the carribean. Great for an afternoon snack or breakfast! Stay tuned for another tropical inspired recipe later this week!
