Coconut-Lime & Mango Smoothie

She put de lime in de coconut, she drank dem bot up…

Oh yes, I went there.

So there have been a few chilly days over the past week that have actually started to feel like fall. I’m not complaining about the cool weather or anything but I just can’t believe that summer is almost over already. Before we know it, there will pumpkins and Halloween candy all over the place.

Okay, I’m not going to lie, I might be a tad excited for pumpkin recipes. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin muffins…but that doesn’t mean I’m ready to let go of summertime yet! I’m hanging on with all I’ve got: a luscious tropical smoothie.

As we were driving home from Lake Tahoe {sob}, we stopped to get a few smoothies for the road and I ordered a mango-lime flavor that was so refreshing, I instantly knew I had to recreate one at home. I modified it slightly by adding coconut meat and Greek yogurt for a thick, creamy texture with a little extra boost of tropical flavor and it turned out perfectly.

You guys, I kid you not, one sip of this will transport you right to a white, sandy beach.

You see all of the green trees in the background of this picture?

Yep, that’s my backyard. It immediately transformed into a private island after I drank this smoothie. My rose bushes grew into tall palm trees with coconuts and I could hear the waves gently breaking on the shore as a cool breeze blew through my hair. It was glorious.

Easy peasy and completely delicious.

So, it’s Monday and there’s no more trash on television. Boo.

Oh wait, I forgot about Real Housewives. Hehe, I almost typed what Brandon calls that show but it isn’t exactly PG so I’ll have to save that one for later. I’ll give you a hint though: the ‘wive’ is replaced with a four letter word that starts with an S. Yeah, he kind of hates that show.

Can you believe Gretchen proposed to Slade? Would you ever propose to a guy? Or, if you’re a guy, what do you think of a woman proposing to you?
