Is it back-to-school time in your house? We’re still trying to hang on to that summer feeling around here for a few more weeks. And, what goes better with summer than a cold, tropical drink?

My girls love smoothies, and this delicious and vibrant tropical smoothie is the perfect way to start the day. It makes a refreshing treat on a hot afternoon, too – whether you’re running around the backyard or running in the door from a busy day at school.
