Coconut Cream Tropical Smoothie

Hello September!  It is still so hot here in Georgia!  We are still in the 90s with humidity, so it is still feeling like summer time.  Since we are close to the Caribbean, the tropical fruits grown there get shipped to our local markets.  End of summer is when they are currently in season, pineapple and mango in particular.  In the Caribbean end of August to September is when these fruit are in their summer seasonal peak.  And Georgia peaches are just at the tail end of their season.  So we have been enjoying these fruits the last couple weeks, and I have been making smoothies for an afternoon snack for my kids.  It’s such a happy treat after a tough day at school!

When making smoothies, I love to add coconut cream because it makes the drink so thick and provides nutrients and healthy fats.  I buy Trader Joes’s coconut cream .  Coconut cream is different from coconut milk, although you can use coconut milk if that’s all you have in your pantry.  Coconut milk is a liquid consistency whereas coconut cream is thick and rich.  I like to keep my pantry well stocked with coconut cream.  I use it for rice dishes, pies, dessert dishes.  Or when I need a little sugar kick, I eat a spoonful of coconut cream, and it quits the craving.  When you serve the smoothie, don’t forget to add a drink umbrella because everything just taste yummier with an umbrella in it.  Also serve with a fun emoji cocktail napkin.
