One of my favorite restaurants to get take-out from is Tropical Smoothie. I love that it’s fresh and healthy and NOT fried. Now don’t get me wrong, I do eat my share of fried foods!! But I really enjoy a fresh meal. I get the same thing every time….I’m not very adventurous. The King Caesar Wrap -no tomatoes- and a Blue Lagoon smoothie with 3 packs of Stevia-no sugar. Oh it is so good and so refreshing. I had some bananas that were about to go south on me recently so I decided to whip up my own little version of the blue lagoon. I have no idea how they do it over at TS (other than it’s strawberries, blueberries and bananas) but mine turned out really pretty good. Here’s what I started with.
Put it all in the blender…no measuring needed. I did add a little bit of sugar and a touch of milk (which I KNOW they don’t do at Tropical Smoothie….but I needed a little liquid to help get it going). And whirl it all up!!! Ruthie wanted to take hers to the next level and add a little whipped cream on top with a fresh blueberry for garnish. Hehe….like mother, like daughter.It hit the spot!! Perfect for these HOT afternoons!!Now, where’s my King Caesar wrap???
