In the event you`d like to have your own Beach Day, here is the recipe for the Tropical Smoothie we made:  All quantities are of course variable to suit your taste and the amount you want to make.   We were all licking the bottom of the glasses and wishing for more!



Pineapple, fresh or canned, about 1-2 cups

Mango, frozen pieces, about 1-2 cups

Banana, 1/2 to 1 whole

Coconut milk, with the cream and everything mixed in.


Blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.  Top with shredded coconut and a paper umbrella toothpick.  Enjoy!


The tag on this dress / cover up actually says “Made in Hawaii”
