We hoped we'd find a blender in our condo kitchen and we were gleeful to discover we had one! The two of us - mostly Wes - would be operating this machine nearly every day of our stay in Hawaii.
So many fresh fruits to choose from in a Safeway grocery store! The colors, the shapes, the sizes...we were in paradise for sure now!
We had smoothies most every day, including breakfast. Part of the reason we wanted a kitchen in our lodging was to be able to have the freedom of choice and convenience. We ate two meals at "home" everyday and went out for the third. Besides, we had a lovely outdoor patio facing lovely exotic trees, flowers and pool. Above: Grilled cheese and chicken sandwiches served with pineapple smoothies.
Never did a sandwich taste better!
Of course, I will give you our basic recipe:
Fresh Pineapple or Papaya Smoothies
3/4 cup fresh chopped fruit (can mix types of fruits together)
3/4 cup fruit juice or berry "cooler"
1 cup vanilla yogurt (or plain)
6-8 ice cubes
Put everything into a blender, adding ice last. Whir vigorously and serve!
Then, imagine you are in Hawaii.....
