Nude Breeze on the Beach or Coconut Mango banana smoothie (V)

 

If blenders existed on the night of the last supper Jesus would have requested this beauty. I considered calling it “Breast Milk of Angels” or “Ice Bath in the Tropics” but stuck with “Nude Breeze on the Beach”. When you take your first sip regardless of being on a tropical island or not you will feel the warm sun on your skin and smell the tropic fruit as a cool breeze cools your bare skin. There are a few ways to make it I will write out the recipe and put the alternative items in parenthesis.
