It's worth the wait!
It took me a while to find the frozen mamey sapote but once I did find it and could bring it home it was so worth the wait. I am looking forward to making this this summer!
I really like fruit shakes but mamey shake is the one i enjoy and crave more i highly recommended specailly in hot summer days
I am pregnant, and can't enjoy my pina colada drinks anymore, but i thought to try this tropical smoothie! This is one creation worth trying, it dealt with my craving for something tropic without intoxication to the baby... Honestly this drink is intoxicating with its taste and aroma, i will be drinking this from now on, and it tastes great with mango, coconut milk and a little umbrella in its glass tops its off perfectly..
I thought this was good, especially on hot summer days. It was a good pick me up
When your hot and sticky and need to cool down here's just the way. Sit back and enjoy a cool shake while you cool down in the shade. This is the best way to enjoy your summer and a fresh drink anytime.
