Under The Palms


Oh, baby.  Have it anyway you like, this is delicious.  Choice A non alcoholic, choice B alcoholic.  This drink is delicious.  My daughter and I were totally wowed.

Yeah, here it is, 3:30 in the afternoon and I just enjoyed one of these.  It all started this morning when I was coming up with ways to get my daughter to drink the remainder of the mango juice.  Straight up, it just wasn't happening.  So I threw it in a blender and added some pineapple juice.  My intention was to copy Mc Donalds new smoothie.  Yuck, didn't like what I had come up with.  I added some cream- doesn't that make everything taste delicious anyhow.  After that I thought it needed something to round it out.  Oh yes, I have a stash of frozen bananas in my freezer for my soft ice cream I usually make with it.  Threw some of those in there.  We inhaled the drink. Then in the afternoon I asked her if she would like another one of those smoothies.  Yup.  After lunch there was a little left and I saw the Veev laying on the counter.  Hmmm, I wonder how that would be.  Mixed it in, chilled it.  Returned from my doctors appointment and wow was that ever good.  Had to share it with you.

I've been so sad that summer is almost over, but this looks like an instant revival of the season- Any time of year! What a delightful tropical blend. :)

Sounds really good. Nothing like a good frozen drink on a sweltering summer day.

Hi Lori!
Sorry I haven't been commenting or blogging lately. I've missed your recipes! This looks like another great one! I haven't got many drink recipes in fact.

Anyway, I really appreciate you asking me if all was well. I am back and blogging again now. I was just busy with uni!

I will be trying your fruit slice recipe (the recent one you posted) I can't resist fruity slices/recipes!
