A tropical coconut smoothie is exactly what I want right about now! Why? Because as you are reading this I am relaxing on a white sugar sand beach on the gulf shores of beautiful Carillon Beach and a tropical smoothie sounds like just the thing. Don’t you wish you were here?

Carillon Beach

This smoothie, whether in a glass or bowl, is a great way to start my day. It gives me a healthy boost of protein, calcium and fiber while allowing me to not feel too guilty when I want to eat or drink all the other goodies that the northern Florida panhandle has to offer. You know like Bushwackers, Fish Tacos, Crab Cakes and oysters.  You can stay tuned to my Instagram for up-to-the-minute photos of all the deliciousness.
