'Tis the Season for Shakes & Smoothies - Iced Tropical Blonde

This smoothie is said to be a calorie burner and will transport you to a warm sunny beach.  Well, the last part may not be true except in your dreams.

Iced Tropical Blonde

1/4 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1/4 cup mango slices
1 frozen banana, cut into pieces
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract

*Add soy or milk protein to balance out the carbohydrate content of the smoothie. Protein is needed to burn fat properly. High insulin levels promote fat storage, and protein powders can help to keep the body's insulin levels even.
