I have been on a bit of a smoothie kick in the last few weeks and I came up with this recipe myself.  I like to eat bananas when they are still a little green so when the black spots start to appear, they lose their appeal to me.  No pun intended!  Now when that happens, I just slice them and freeze the slices for later use in smoothies or ice cream.  No more wasted bananas!  I also bought two or three pineapples when they were on sale, chopped them, and froze the chopped pieces with the bananas.  Now when I want to make this smoothie, I don’t have to use ice and the fruit is ready to go.  Hope you enjoy!

For the July edition of the Picture Perfect Cooking-Southern Plate project, I have chosen a very refreshing drink that I think everyone would love!  It is sweet with just a hint of tartness from a little bit of lemon juice and it goes down so easy.  Sometimes a little too easy, since these juices have quite a bit of natural sugar, so a little glass goes a long way!

I first had a drink like this in the Applewood Farmhouse restaurant in Pigeon Forge, TN a couple of years ago.  I tried to duplicate it, but I could not get the taste just right.  I think Southern Plate did though because this is just how I remember it!  Make this on a hot summer day and watch it disappear!
