Tropical Smoothie Recipe

This Is A Healthy Smoothie Recipe Even The Kids Will Enjoy

I made a healthy tropical smoothie for you all to enjoy today. It’s naturally sweetened, dairy-free, and delicious! This is one of my kids’ favorite smoothie combos. Any extras left in the bottom of the blender?

I call for lots of frozen fruit in the recipe. You don’t have to use it but I strongly recommend it. Getting into the habit of keeping lots of frozen fruit on hand will change your smoothie life. It makes the texture like a Jamba Juice, thick and almost ice cream like! And we all know that is never a bad thing.

And if you want to throw in a cup of frozen blueberries you’ll have a delicious purple smoothie! Less tropical but still super delicious.

Need some more advice on smoothie making? You might like my post on Good, Better, and Best Smoothies. It gives tips on what elements make a good and good-for-you smoothie, as well as some ideas on how to add other things into a smoothie to make it the best.

What can I do with leftover smoothies?

Any leftovers are great frozen into popsicles for later! Just put them into popsicle molds and save them for another time. Plus kids find popsicles to be a lot of fun.

Can I use a different liquid when making fruit smoothies?

This recipe uses vanilla almond milk, but you can also use plain or unsweetened almond milk, as well as any other kind of nut milk. Regular dairy milk also is great in a smoothie, just pick whichever meets your needs. I use almond milk because it has less sugar and some other vitamins not in cow’s milk.

LOVE Love Smoothies. As an 82 old woman, many times I don’t feel like solid
food so I make a Clean Smothie, Delish.❤❤

Melissa;
Hi,your smoothie looks really good,but I was wondering what the carbs and sugar content is in your tropical smoothie.
I am a diabetic and I was wondering if this smoothie can be made in a magic bullet blender for 1 person.
How can I lower the sugar and carbs in your tropical smoothie?
Can I put protein powder in your smoothie with the coconut milk and the frozen tropical fruit in my blender?

People need to realize they are not “clean” eating if their food has the dye’s in it. Red 40, Red 3, Yellow 3, Blue 1, etc. A lot of times dye’s are sprayed on the fruits (yes even frozen fruit) to make the color more attractive to customers. If you are eating food with dye’s in it you are NOT clean eating.

I’m so trying this! Thanks!

Melissa I need a large one of these smoothies right now! I was just commenting on Kimberly’s popsicles about how we are sweating here in FL. This looks so refreshing!! Pinned!

My kids love smoothies, and I love that it has almond milk so I can have it too!

This is super similar to some of my favorite smoothie recipes. Love using frozen fruit to get that thick and creamy texture! So refreshing.
