This Healthy Tropical Smoothie is quick and easy and we gobble it up. It also has no sugar added and happens to be dairy free. You can’t go wrong when you are blending together fruit and ice. And here’s a tip – I love to throw any extra smoothie into my popsicles molds so that we can enjoy it the next day, frozen!
Quick and Easy Tropical Smoothie
Summer is almost over, and the end of this summer has been something I’ve been dreading for years. My oldest is going to Kindergarten. Not just Kindergarten but ALL DAY Kindergarten! I knew this time would come whether I was ready of not, and now that it is here I’m not sure how ready a momma can be for such life changes. Her dad works from home, I stay at home, her brothers are at home. We are homebodies and we quiet like it that way. Sending her somewhere else for 6.5 hours a day sounds unbearable.
The only consolation I have is the fact that I think she’s going to love it. Living in the middle of no where has its perks… she only has 16 kids in her whole class (her whole grade really, there is only one class!) and 12 of the 16 are little girls! I think she’s going to love learning and play and reading. So as unexcited as I am for myself and my missing her, I’m so excited for her and her new opportunities to learn and grow and shine.
So all you seasoned Moms who have sent your babies off into the wide wide world. How did you live through it?
I think I’ll have to come home that morning and make me a happy vibrant tropical smoothie to drown my sorrows in 🙂 Then I’ll have to make another to welcome her back home after her first day! This will be an awesome after school snack.
How much ice do I add to smoothies?
That depends on how sweet you want your smoothie. If the mixture is too sweet for you add more ice and process again. I’ll add ice until I like the sweetness because the ice dilutes it each time you add more without effecting the texture of the smoothie.
What should I do if my smoothie is too thick?
If your smoothie is too thick, simply thin it by adding a bit of any liquid.
Do you have to use frozen fruit for smoothies?
You can definitely use fresh fruit to make your smoothies. Smoothies are a great way to add in fruits and vegetables to your diet, so be creative. However, I often like to use frozen fruit because it adds to the thick texture I like in smoothies.
