When I was in high school, there was an Orange Julius in Isla Verde… we would go every Sunday afternoon, after going to the beach the whole day, to cool off with a Tropical Cream Supreme. This was THE BEST drink over at the Orange Julius. It tasted like summer, sand and sun all rolled up into a delicious shake.
I liked these shakes so much that my then boyfriend would buy and bring them to me almost every night when I was home-bound with the chicken pox. I even bought once a Hawaiian Tropic suntan oil because it smelled just like a Tropical Cream Supreme. It was almost an obsession… I know.
But that was then… and suddenly, without even looking for it, I once again reunited with one of my high school loves – The Tropical Cream Supreme. Let me show you how…
ODE TO THE TROPICAL CREAM SUPREME
1 banana 3 strawberries 1 cup orange juice ½ cup plain soymilk 3 tbs agave nectar 1 tbs bee pollen 3 ice cubes
- Mix everything in a blender and enjoy it watching the sunset after a hot day at the beach. (sigh!)
The bee pollen is something I added on my own. It was not included in the original shake, however it added certain sweetness and energy-boosting qualities very much in tune with my current lifestyle. Try it… it’s available at most natural food stores.
