Today, I thought I would kick-start the week with my healthy Cinco De Mayo smoothie!! Ok, I’m not sure if my drink is really considered a Cinco De Mayo drink, maybe more tropical, but still it’s good, it’s fruity and so perfect for a nice sunny day!!
This drink is sure to put you in a summer mood! It’s made with pineapple, banana and mango, all blended together in coconut milk. It’s sweet, healthy and loaded vitamin C and sure enough to put a smile on your face!! I know it did mine!!
I just love these kind of drinks, they are more like a dessert then a healthy pick-me up to get you through the rest of your day. I made this drink after my Saturday Zumba class. I have to admit I skipped out the past three weeks, and when I went to class, I realized how much I really do like it. Today’s teacher was a good one too, she explained the moves, where as the last teacher just went into routine and never stopped. Yes I know I burn more calories just moving and not stopping, but I do want to figure out how to move right! I am not the most coordinated person when it comes to any kind of dance, so I need instructions. I have to laugh, she played Vanilla Ice’s, Ice, Ice Baby in the class and now that silly song is stuck in my head! Darn that Vanilla Ice. Such a goofy song, I can’t believe it was a hit!
- ½ banana, frozen
- ½ cup pineapple, frozen
- ⅓ cup mango, frozen
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- ¼ tsp coconut extract
- ½ cup unsweetended coconut milk (from a carton)
- 1 cup water
- ½ cup ice
- Put all the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.
I’m happy to bring back Smoothie Monday, it’s been about two weeks. I was in need of a smoothie!!
I have a question for you… Every year I like to go somewhere for vacation and I never get any help deciding from my Husband, so it’s all on me. I don’t have a heck of a lot of money, but I want to go somewhere, any suggestions of what would be a fun place to go that won’t cost a fortune. Normally every August we go to Las Vegas, and I love it there! The weather is hot, the hotels are nice and airfare is pretty cheap, but I tend to spend quite a bit of money playing the slots, Eck… So this year I am debating about somewhere else. I thought Mexico, Los Angeles, Clearwater Florida (I have never been there and airfare and hotels, cost the same as Vegas, but the weather maybe to humid in August) or San Diego. My dream though is Hawaii, but that is a little bit out of my pocket book, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know!
Have a wonderful week!
