Last summer, my aunt left me a message on Facebook about Tropical Smoothie giving away a free smoothie if you came in with flip-flops. The boys and I jumped on that deal. As a result, the Imaginative One fell in love with the strawberry banana smoothie (I don’t remember its real name). Once I got the smoothie maker, the Imaginative One and I decided to try to recreate the smoothie. I had to add a little of this, and a little of that before the Imaginative One gave his seal of approval.
These are not exactly like the smoothies from Tropical Smoothie, but they are similar.
