Tropical Smoothie

Morsels of Life - Tropical Smoothie - Imagine yourself relaxing in paradise with this luscious smoothie - full of tropical flavors like mango, pineapple, and strawberries in a coconut base!

It's SRC time again! As part of the Secret Recipe Club, we're (secretly) assigned another blogger, and we get to select a recipe from their blog to make. This month, I got The Harried Cook, where Marsha shares her recipes as a record for her daughters. What a great way to pass recipes on! Looking through her posts, I was drawn to her homemade quark (wonder who came up with the name?), smoky BBQ sauce, and chicken porridge. But with the weather being what it is, we just wanted something cool and refreshing - like a tropical smoothie. Yummo! Just a few minutes to make, and you're off to your tropical paradise - at least mentally! When the weather's sweltering, I prefer to enjoy indoors - with AC. :)

Since we didn't have any strawberries when I planned to make this recipe, I decided to use pineapple instead. And then, we bought some strawberries, so I used both. :) I also used 2 cups of coconut milk (from the can) instead of a cup of coconut milk and half a cup of skim milk. We really enjoyed this smooth and silky tropical smoothie!

What's your favorite tropical or summer fruit?
