Edible Style: Tropical "Tres Frutas" Smoothie

Hello Lovelies!!! The temperature is rising which means that Summer days are slowly approaching. Yes, I know Spring is still amongst us and I should just enjoy the fact that I don't have to wear a heavy coat anymore. It's true, Spring is rather enjoyable, but I must admit that I am really looking forward to those warm, sunny days on the beach where I can lay out under a big umbrella. Don't get me wrong I like the sun and all, but a girl's got to watch out for those direct sun rays on her skin, know what I mean? Topical sunscreen, a warm summer breeze, and some music while I relax by the sea sounds riveting!

Of course that includes staying hydrated with an ice cold beverage in my hand. When I need a little getaway but can't seem to get away physically, I like to "travel" through the flavors of my food. One of the easiest ways to do so is with a tropical smoothie. There are so many great fruits that are perfect for smoothies and when combined take me on a caribbean escapade right at home. This exotic trip to taste bud paradise starts with frozen fruit--three in particular.

Frozen pineapple chunks, peach slices, and mangos cubes blended with vanilla soy yogurt, coconut milk, and a pinch of spearmint was just what I needed to put me on the course to vacation alley. There are so many combinations you could do with this smoothie travel concept. Depending on where you'd like to be carried away, pick three fruits, a yogurt/protein, liquid, and mint or other fresh garden herb and blend until your heart's content. Then pour it, put a straw in it, and indulge in one of the best flavor trips you've ever had right in the confines of your humble abode. It may not be a permanent fix for those travel bug desires you've been harvesting, but it is a quick fix for those location stagnant blues.

So what is your take on the Tropical "Tres Frutas" Smoothie? Could it be Edible-ly Stylish?
