Tropic Freeze

Right now Chicago feels like Spring will never come! And I keep thinking that a short while ago I was getting sunburned and having fresh fruit smoothies every day at a little stand called ' Kadushi'.


As I watched them churn out smoothie after smoothie in their Vitamix, I started memorizing the basics.  The following recipe is just one of hundreds of variations--use frozen fruits (as demo-ed in previous blogs) for creating a Tropic Freeze. 


If you are hitting the gym, add in your favorite protein powder. If you want "rich and silky", add 1/2 cup Greek yoghurt.

Equipment:
Nutri-Bullet, or heavy-duty blender

Ingredients:
1/2 banana
4-5 strawberries
1/2 ripe mango
4-5 chunks pineapple
1/2 cup o.j.
1/3 cup water
Handful ice cubes


Instructions:
1. Wash your hands. 
2. Prep the fruit or just pull it out of the freezer. 


3. Combine everything in blender cup. 





4. Pulse x 30 secs until smooth. 


5. Enjoy the sun!!
