Tropical Traditions Coconut Flakes Review and Giveaway!

Tropical Traditions sent me their Coconut Flakes to review and giveaway!
This giveaway is open to US and Canada.


Things I want and wanted to try: Smoothies, cookies and granola. My first use was a smoothie. It was good! I love that this recipe doesn't have added sugar in it.

Recipe
 Directions
  1. Thaw out the frozen fruit. I used mango, but pineapple would taste good as well.
  2. Put the fruit through a mini food processor.
  3. Add all the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. It made enough for our family of 4 to each have some.
  4. I added extra coconut on top of mine, but the rest of the family had theirs without.

Everyone in the family gave the smoothie a thumbs up!
