Tropical Smoothies

We like to experiment with different kinds of smoothies, and this refreshing creation is our favorite so far. The thick creamy blend has fabulous fruit flavors. Serve it as a day-starter or afternoon pick-me-up. —Wendy Thomas, Pickens, South Carolina

    I thought this was just okay. I think if I make it again I will add more fruit and use less milk/yogurt.
