Caribbean Fruit Smoothie
What hits the spot on a hot, sunny day in the Caribbean islands? An ice-cold fruit smoothie, of course!

Caribbean Islands
There are more than seven thousand islands in the Caribbean. The islands are all different sizes, with beautiful sandy beaches, turquoise water, and tall palm trees. The Caribbean islands are surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

Tropical Fruit
Tropical fruits, such as pineapples, coconuts, mangoes, and guava, are grown in the Caribbean. The warm trade winds and mild temperatures allow these sweet fruits, many rich in vitamin C, to bloom all year long.

What You Need
Electric blender
Cutting board
Sharp knife

1 large banana, peeled and broken into pieces
½ cup mango, peeled and diced
½ cup orange juice
½ cup pineapple juice
½ cup ice cubes

  2. With an adult's help, mix on medium-high speed for 1 minute.
