Boom Boom Smoothies

We've decided to join in Teachingtinytots' Reading Theme Challenges. This week we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.

This was actually my first time reading it (in my memory anyways). Am loved it. I think this might end up on the x-mas list come winter.

I had originally planned to make some coconut ice cream only I then found out my ice cream maker requires lots of crushed ice or rock salt. So slight change of plans there. I whipped up this instead:

Boom Boom Smoothies

2 Frozen Bananas
2 T Honey
Half a Mango, skinned & Chopped
1/4 c Heavy Cream
1 c Coconut Milk
1/2 c Orange Juice
Ice- enough for the texture you want
Candy Orange for garnish, optional

Place ingredients into a blender. Puree until smooth, pour into glasses, add garnish and enjoy!

Yeah, they actually tasted pretty good (though I left out the ice so they were kinda funny without). It reminded me of a virgin pina colada a bit. I think it was the coconut.

And thanks for the welcome! ^^
