When the warm days start beating down on you, literally, a refreshing smoothie will definitely do the trick. With this sweet and savory pineapple-mango mix, this fruit smoothie will be a summer hit.
It’s Smoothie Saturday!!
I think I’m going to like drinking these fruit smoothies! They’re yummy, filling and good for you. I don’t need dinner now that today’s filled my tummy up. Who can say no to a Mango Pineapple smoothie?
And I felt like I was in the tropics while I was drinking it.

Ok, not really, but the flavors kind of reminded me of it…
It would have been nice to have been swaying in a hammock on a beautiful beach, a tropical breeze caressing my fair skin, sand in between my toes, an appointment with the handsome Amadeo for a hot stone massage at 1 pm, followed by a mani/pedi, dinner reservations on the porch of a 5 star restaurant at 6 pm with a gorgeous view of the sunset over the water, a walk hand in hand with my wonderful husband down the beach under a full moon, ended with a peaceful night of sleeping in our over-the-water bungalow while the waves lap gently below us.
*shaking her head and coming back to reality*
Oh, oh, sorry. I started daydreaming a bit there and really lost it with the thought of that handsome tall, dark man giving me a massage. Yes, I know I’m married, and quite happily, too. I’m still human though! Don’t worry, there’s NO way I’d jeopardize my marriage and my family. I am COMPLETELY blessed and I know it.
Besides, that sand between the toes thing really made my skin crawl anyway.
I can’t STAND the feeling of sand between my toes!!!!! And I was raised on a beach. Ok, not on necessarily, but like, on the edge. Reminds me of the movie Shrek, “I’m a donkey on the edge!” I digress. As usual. At least I’m entertaining, right?

It actually made more than is in this glass, I just did this for photo purposes. It probably amounted to 2 1/2 of these glasses.
I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 and this Pineapple Mango Smoothie earned 3 1/2 rolling pins. Sounds weird giving a smoothie rolling pins. I think it should be a straw rating. I don’t know if that would confuse people.
You can’t have enough drink recipes for those hot summer months so, here are a few more to keep you satisfied and cool this year.
What do you think, rolling pins or straws for Smoothie Saturdays?
Alright, I’m off. I’m playing my son in a mean game of Words with Friends and I’m in it to win it, man! He’s dogmeat! I’m kidding. That’s a mean thing for a mother to say. I should be encouraging and loving and building my child’s self-esteem.
C-H-A-I-N-S for triple word, boy!! BOOYAH!!
LOVE YOU ALL!!!
