Island Dose Vitamin C (serves 2-3)


Some people claim that traveling on a plane makes them sick.  Here is a drink to try before take off to keep you healthy.  By the way, if you are prone to catching a cold after flying, bring along some hand sanitizer wipes and give your surroundings a good scrub before you take a seat.  Don't forget the tray table in front of you and the seat belt (I highly recommend this procedure)!!  Remember to hydrate yourself with plenty of non-alcoholic beverages during the flight.  My friend and neighbor Cindy, who is an excellent flight attendant reminded me that one alcoholic beverage in the air is equivalent to three drinks on the ground.  This may be the reason you get a bit tipsy after a few drinks!

Ingredients:

1/2 of a grapefruit, peel and remove seeds
3 tangerines, peel and remove seeds
1 orange, peel and remove seeds
1/4 of a pineapple
1/2 of a can of Pass-O-Guava juice (Aloha Maid Natural fruit drink)
4 ice cubes
Bougainvillea bract (s), garnish (optional)

Method:

Give it a good spin in a blender, drink and say Aloha to Maui!  :--(

*This whole recipe will make the blender pretty full.  I used a 5-C blender and it filled 5 cups.  You can blend half of the ingredients at a time to make it easier.
