80--- Spring Break Smoothie

Spring break is right around the corner.  What are your plans?  I will not be traveling anywhere tropical, so the tropics must come to me.  In Montana.  Burrrrr.

This smoothie helps ease the no-spring-break-travel-plans blues.  I shall lay in the sunbeam that comes through my bedroom window with my Boston Terrier and sip my smoothie.

Spring Break Smoothie
Makes 1- 16 oz smoothie or 2- 8 oz smoothies

1 frozen banana, sliced
3-4 frozen pineapple rings
1/2 cup low fat plain yogurt
1/2 cup 100% orange juice
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk
Ice, if needed

Place all ingredients into a blender and mix until a puree is formed.  Add ice and continue to mix if you desire a thicker consistency. 

Pour into a glass, garnish with an umbrella (essential) and some coconut flakes.  Sip slowly (avoiding ice cream headaches that could wake you from your fantasy).
