Tropical Smoothie

Quick Post: Yum – this is so luscious! My kids would love this one, but it’s definitely a treat smoothie because of all the orange juice…carbs and sugar! This recipe is enough for 1 serving. Thanks for reading, enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
1. Blend until nice and smooth! Enjoy 🙂


My Mom and Dad sent money for Christmas – always a good gift! I had a lot of fun choosing new kitchen toys that will make my life a little easier. With my portion, I bought two new loaf pans (I can’t wait to use these), a new cooling rack and a stick blender. Oh, how I love you stick blender…I have so far only used it to make smoothies, but if that was all it was good at making that would be just fine with me. It’s a lot less hassle than dragging out the blender every morning, and I have even had time to make the kids one before school too. The clean up is so easy too which is always a plus. Anyway, here’s my tasty, super simple, healthy, basic smoothie. Enjoy!
