Years ago my parents were walking through the airport and came across an obnoxiously cute monkey that doubled as a stuffed animal and puppet. They couldn’t help themselves from splurging on this curious looking little creature. Since then, they haven’t traveled without him.

They keep track of his travels by marking his little t-shirt with their latest location and snap fun photos with him. BTW, they named him “Slippery” the monkey. No idea why, but he’s become quite the hit every time we travel.

A few years ago, we went to Aruba and had an iced drink. Since Slippery was there hanging at the pool bar with us, we referred to the delicious concoction as the “Slippery Monkey.” Think of a chocolaty banana smoothie with a hint of coffee and delicious dark rum! When we returned, we couldn’t help but come up with our own, healthier version of the cocktail.
