Let’s start this Monday off right with candy. Lifesavers to be exact.

My all-time favorite lifesaver flavor is pineapple. You can keep the cherry, orange and definitely the watermelon ones (why that flavor is included in the mix, I’ll never know) but I’ll take all your pineapple! Lifesavers reminds me of when my sister Julie and I would return my dad’s pop bottles to by candy at the Wesley Drugs, a corner store that made a killing every time us girls were up there. I’d walk out with an ice cream sandwich, a Butterfinger candy bar, Sour Patch Kids, Bubble Tape, a New York Seltzer and a roll of Lifesavers, just to name a few. It’s a wonder how I have any teeth left?! Well those pineapple lifesavers are today’s inspiration for a smoothie.

I’m always trying to come up with fruit and flavor combos to put into my blender. It doesn’t matter where I am… work, home, in bed… I’ll jot down a smoothie recipe. I’m at the grocery store, smoothie recipe. Waiting at my daughters bus stop, thinking smoothie! Like this very one.

It was warm here in Michigan but right now it’s snowing, yup snow in April. So why not take a little trip to somewhere tropical in the form of a smoothie? And for all you that are enjoying a sunny 75 degree day… I’m super jealous!

You know the drill… in goes the ice.

Chobani is my newest and most favorite yogurt. But you can use your favorite vanilla yogurt, k?

Add it on top of the cup of ice.

I think bananas tend to overpower everything… so I’m using only a half a banana today; just save the other half for garnishing!

Cut it into chunks and add it to the yogurt and ice.

Next go ahead and toss in the pineapple.

Cut up a mango; but if you need a refresher on how to cut up one of these babies then look here.

Toss in a whole cut up mango.

Sweeten with honey, my favorite of all sweeteners!

Add a touch more vanilla, a dash of vanilla extract to be exact.

A splash of milk.

Puree until there is no chunks of ice, pineapple or mango left. Pour. And sit back, relax, and pretend you’re sunning on the beach of an island somewhere remote.

Now pretend there is rum in this smoothie. 🙂

Garnish with a little banana and pineapple, or a fancy umbrella thingy.
