Finally, Beverages for Tropical Country

I’ve been dying want to try a smoothie. I made juice all the time but never tried making smoothies. Mostly because the recipes online needs ingredients that is not easily found here. It’s easy to get banana or watermelon or lemon (well, lemon is kinda hard but possible to find). But some other food like blueberry, peach or kiwi is expensive and no where to be found. Clearly my money pocket and the supermarket are against the idea of me trying those fruits. After stumbling for a while, finally I few pages that share beverage recipes with easy to found Ingredients. Here is the list:
