Taste of the Tropics Smoothie

I am thoroughly enjoying the Coconut Dream that I found last week... on my oats, and on cold cereal, and now in a luscious smoothie that tastes of warm tropical breezes and swaying palm trees... just the thing for a cool winter day!  It has a lovely, light coconut flavor and just enough fat to feel deliciously creamy in my mouth.

Using the Coconut Dream in a smoothie was suggested to me by Christy, from My Dirt Road Anthem.  I am so glad I decided to try it out.  My first attempt is simple and delicious, with only 2 ingredients, but I know I will be doing more experimenting with this.

I like smoothies anytime of the day when I need a snack... whether it is after a workout or just when I need something nutritious to get me through a couple of hours till mealtime. 

And I normally use my immersion blender.  It is so handy and easy to clean,  and I often drink right out of the blender jar!
