I found myself with a dozen blood oranges.  Although their flavour is very traditionally orange, their colour is is the novelty.  I worked these oranges into several culinary preparations.  The first, was a delicious tropical smoothie.

I started with some classic tropical flavours: banana, orange and pineapple.  I added almond milk and a bit of ice.


Blend it up!  Use a high-powered blender to ensure no chunks.


Garnish with sweeetened coconut and serve.  A tasty and healthy way to experience the tropics - even if you're stuck in the dead of winter.
