There I was, lounging on the comfortable blue and white striped cushion of a chaise longue on a white sand beach, basking in the turquoise and azure glory of the seascape and sky before me, wide-brimmed straw hat shading me from the sun overhead. And in my hand, a cold, refreshing smoothie resplendent with the flavours of the tropics … banana, pineapple, mango and orange.
Does life get any better than … BRRINGGGG!
Damn, the alarm clock always interrupts the best dreams.
But I can go back to the tropics any time with this Tropical Sunrise Smoothie, and so can you. After a sip of this you just might be looking for your sunscreen!
