It's so hard to believe that is April 12th - I'm not sure where the time goes but the12th is always a special day on the blog!  Our #12 blogger group posts our themed recipes for the month and I'm excited to share this Pineapple Coconut Mango Smoothie.  It's so refreshing and reminds me of the tropics, palm trees, sand, sun and surf!  Today you'll find a variety from the other bloggers so be prepared to find a new tasty beverage to enjoy!  Oh and notice my cute straws :)

I decided to go with a tropical theme because as I was making this smoothie last weekend, we were also preparing for our Florida trip. Every year around this time we head to visit the DIY Guy's brother and sister-in-law.  They live in a cool town called Treasure Island and live on the intercoastal  waters.  It's a great time to relax, head to the beach and do some boating.  Some of the time us "sisters" hang out and go to beach.  Last year we found a perfect spot in St. John's pass which is about 5 minutes from their place.  We pack up some food/drinks, head over, plug the meter, rent chairs and just hang out.  The guys will head out on the boat, see what they can catch and provide for the family!  We also go to some fun restaurants and whenever possible eat on the beach.  One of my favorite places is called Frenchy's - they have the best She Crab soup.  They have about 4 locations in Clearwater Beach area and it's always a highlight for me!  Each time I savor a spoonful, I try to capture the flavors to see how I could give it an attempt at home.  Though since I'm in Minnesota, the ambiance of not having the beach, probably wouldn't have the same experience for me.  Maybe I just need more trips to Florida throughout the year!  A girl can dream, right?
