Tropical Dreams

"Tropical Dreams" (Recipe by Maggie, livingfoodjunkie)
1 cup of frozen tropical fruit (mango, pineapple, grapes)
1 frozen banana
1 orange
1/2 cup of cold water
Mix it up in your blender!
My dream inspired this smoothie! Last night I dreamt I was running through the jungle and the humidity was so intense that I kept searching for water or something to drink. Eventually I find this raw food/smoothie stand out in the middle of tropics and fruit is being picked fresh off the trees. Oh what a wonderful dream it was, so I decided that I would have to somewhat recreate a tropical smoothie :)

Just a quick post today, my lil guy is getting cranky with me because he wants to go to the market to buy bananas and apples. I guess it could be worse, he could be asking for junk food. Yay, for my lil guy for loving his fruits and veggies!

I never tried grapes in a smoothie. Sounds interesting. Mango/banana/orange is one of my favorite combos too.

Hi Lori! I am so happy my son is asking me fruit and veggies, rather than processed foods. It aways puts a huge smile on my face :)

Hi Bitt! I was surprised at the subtle, sweet flavor grapes give to smoothies. I usually freeze them before hand and through a handful in the mix :)

Thanks for commenting ladies :) So nice to hear from you! :)
