A Tropical Adventure

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.

    • Yes, it is! And a nice change from the raspberries or strawberries that I usually base a smoothie on.
