THIS IS SPARTY'S Hawaiian Smoothie!!!

this is sparty's hawaiian smoothie!!!!

I use the Bella Cucina Rocket Blender to make my smoothies.

So aieee, SpartaKris broke her leg at the end of the season, a really terrible break, but she was operated on by the most amazing seven foot tall orthopedic surgeon and when she woke up, the first food she asked for was Hawaiian salad. Which we have teased her greatly about, including saying such things as Tonight we dine on Hawaiian salad!

Be well Sparty, this smoothie's for you! This is the party version, I do without the marshmallows for every day and it's still extremely delicious.

Oh and, I decided that I like canned pineapple better than frozen. I got jars of pineapple and mandarin orange, and I divided them up into ziploc bags and froze them. Or you can use unfrozen fruit with frozen yogurt cubes. Save the juice from the fruit, you can use it to sweeten your strawberry peanut butter smoothies.

nine or twelve cubes of frozen canned pineapple
nine or twelve segments of frozen canned mandarin orange
about a half cup of yogurt
almond milk
flaked coconut

Put the pineapple and orange in the blender cup, add yogurt, and pour in a good amount of almond milk. Screw on the cap, stick the cup on the motor base, and blend for 30 seconds. Then take it off the base and give it a little shake to get anything that's stuck on the top of the cup. Blend for another 20 seconds or until the smoothie is churning freely from top to bottom.

Top with flaked coconut and marshmallows. I torched them a little bit with my kitchen lighter to toast them.
