On an Island in the Sun

We’ll run away together
We’ll spend some time forever
We’ll never feel bad anymore...

In my Shape magazine this month it featured a number of tropical smoothies "with a twist". 
Chock full of superfoods they cut out all the bad and leave you with a pure, delicious and good-for-you escape!
This week I tried out the "Island Mango Chiller" 
To say that it was delicious would be a vast understatement!
It was the perfect blend of sweet, tart and saucy and left me feeling fantastic
and without any of those horrible "I just drank 1200 calorie" regrets!

To make your own Island Mango Chiller, you will need:
1 cup of ice cubes
1/4 cup chopped mango (I used frozen)
1/2 cup canned pineapple chunks
2 tb. canned pineapple juice
1/2 tsp. lime zest
1 tb. lime juice
dash of cayenne pepper (trust me, it works!)

Throw everything in your blender and hit frappe!
Serve in a glass with a lime wedge on the side and you will feel like your on a tropical escape!

The best part?
It's only 135 calories and 1 gram of fat (+4 grams of fiber!)

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
