Prior to moving aboard we determined that one of the must have items for life aboard was a VitaMix blender. I surprised Vick by presenting her with said blender on her birthday, and ever since have been monopolizing the thing to make all manner of icy drinks. Today I will share my two favorites.
Perfect Pineapple Banana Smoothie:
1/2 fresh pineapple (sliced in 3 or 4 large slabs)
2 bananas (whole)
Juice of two limes (fresh please)
A generous handful of ice
Blend until silky smooth and drink immediately
1/2 cup of coconut flakes blended to powder
juice of one lime
2oz Tommy Bahama Dark
2oz Patron Citrónge
a cup or so of frozen pineapple (we used all the fresh last night)
Blend until smooth
…and yes, parrot head friends, I am listening to Reverend Jimmy as I write this post and sip my Tropical Daydream.
