First thing off, I have to say, a very easy and tasty summer drink is a can of pineapple juice, (usually under or around $2) a couple of bananas (those on the counter about to turn brown...) and a few handfuls of ice- thrown in the blender and whirled to your cold creamy delight... makes a really fast, cheap and easy round of drinks. The ice and fruit makes it wonderful for summer. Call that my two daily servings of fruit. Stick a cherry on top and make it three!
If you want to add some coconut rum or vanilla ice cream, oohhhhhh it just gets better. Or you can skip the rum and add the flavorings instead. That's what I'm talking about... High today here is 116 degrees. See you near the blender, by the pool or under the nearest fan.
