Tuesday Tropical Smoothie Fix
February 2, 2016 by Tina Tovmasian
It’s Tuesday and that means another smoothie is in the works. Today’s fix is the tropical smoothie. Loaded with tropical fruits and such, it tastes like Hawaii in a glass. I include macadamia nuts in this recipe because they are a great source of fiber and blend really well with these fruit flavors. This is my daughter’s favorite and I always make her one when I pick her up from school. She tends to be hungry and drinks it allll up, making me one happy Mamma because she’s getting a good serving of fruits and veggies. Try this out for your little one!
What You’ll Need to Make this Tropical Smoothie:
- 1 cup pineapple, chopped
- 1 cup mango, chopped
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 of a medium carrot, chopped
- Roughly 10 roasted macadamia nuts, chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 cup crushed ice
Step 1 and Final Step:
- Put all of the above in a blender and blend until smooth. You can add more ice if you like your smoothies icier. Enjoy!
