The Supreme Plate Summertime Smoothie

The Supreme Summertime Smoothie -
1 cup crushed Pineapple (juice included)
1 cup frozen Mango (if using fresh mango, ad ¼ cup)
1 Peach (washed, peeled, pitted and cut into quarters)
2 heaping scoops of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream (any brand you prefer)
¼ - ½ cup of Club Soda
a few dashes of Honey
1 Cinnamon stick
1 cup of Ice

Place all the ingredients into the Vitamix blender, secure the lid and place a hand over the top.
Turn the blender to variable 1 and turn the machine on. Slowly increase the variable to 8, then 10 then high. If the motor sounds as if it stopping or getting caught up by the ice, reduce the speed and let the cubes get broken down or add a bit more Club Soda to smooth out the mixture.
Blend on high for about 45 seconds and pour into chilled Rocks Glasses.
Garnish w/ grated Cinnamon and place the remaining Cinnamon stick in the glass.
If the drink is still too tart for your liking, add a bit more Honey or your favorite sweetener
