Tasty Tropical Smoothie Recipe
You'll feel like you've been taken to the islands with this tasty tropical smoothie. A little frozen tropical fruit goes a long way with this vitamin packed smoothie.
Now that I'm getting pretty good at making smoothies, I'm experimenting with new flavors in my Blendfresh line-up. In case you missed it, I made a super easy green smoothie using my Blendfresh Green and a super yummy berry banana smoothie using my Blendfresh Red, so I figured it was time to try ORANGE! Now, you don't need Blendfresh products in order to make this delicious tropical smoothie, but it will add an additional layer or flavors and 12 fruits/vegetables to your smoothie.
What I love about blending smoothies is that you can completely customize them to fit your tastes. If you don't like orange juice, use apple juice or coconut water. Don't be afraid to experiment to find what flavors you love best. This recipe will make a LARGE smoothie (think over 30 ounces). I drink this in the morning for breakfast and it definitely hold me over until lunch, plus I feel hydrated and just all around good afterwards!
- 1.5 cups of frozen fruit in a tropical blend - this would include a variation of pineapple, mango, strawberries (it might vary depending on where you purchase)
- 1 banana
- 8 ounces of orange juice (you can use a different juice if you'd like)
- 1 cup of ice
- 1 scoop of Blendfresh Orange (optional, but a great addition). You can also include any pre/probiotics, fiber, or protein powder you'd like for added oomph!
Add your frozen ingredients to the bottom of the blender, then your banana (and any other non frozen ingredients), then your juice and Blendfresh powder (optional). Blend until smooth. I use a Blendtec Express Pro on the "smoothie" profile setting and it comes out perfect. If your smoothie is too thick, add more juice or water. If it's too thin, add more frozen fruit.
Serve and enjoy!
