Tropical Smoothie is a delicious cocktail with a natural sweetness, super refreshing, with health benefits.
Tropical Smoothie is one of those delicious drinks you want to enjoy any time of the year.
Yes, you may think that it is winter, and what kind of tropical smoothie are you talking about?
But, let’s think about this smoothie from another point of view.
For example, in my kitchen, you may find a lot of fruits. I always have bananas, mango, or kiwis. So, for a tasty and protein-packed cocktail, all you need is some fresh fruits, milk or pineapple water, and a blender.
Blend everything and obtain a creamy, fruitful, and healthy dose of proteins in one glass.
Tropical smoothie is quick to make and ideal for breakfast, as well as for late lunch.
I like smoothies, be it a healthy green one or sweet like this tropical one; I like all of them. You can check some of my recipes, such as:
This Tropical Smoothie is simply a glass of healthiness, fruit-packed, with lovely spring colour. Sometimes this is the perfect way to start your day. A doze of health and your morning starts perfectly and nutritious.
Smoothies are healthy fats with a creamy texture and soothing properties. My daughter likes sweet/fruity smoothies, so I try to make them often as she doesn’t want to eat raw fruits. Blending all of them, I deceive her to have the daily dose of fruits.
In winter, not all fruits are super ripe and sweet, so you can camouflage this taste by adjusting sweeteners.
Sugar or honey?
Neither of these, I added. My fruits were sweet enough, and there was no need for sweeteners. However, if your fruits aren’t sweet enough, you can easily add 1-2 tbsp of honey; pay attention to adding gradually to avoid a too sweet smoothie.
What fruits do you need for a Tropical Smoothie?
For the best Tropical Smoothie, you need any fruits you have available in your kitchen, milk or pineapple water, honey or sugar, and mint for garnish.
If you have only two fruits, it will also be okay as you can make an easy smoothie only of the ingredients you have.
Bananas are sweet, intense, and creamy. If you have ripe bananas, then 1 or 2 will be enough.
I have added oranges, but it is optional. My oranges were sweet and refreshing, so I wanted a balanced sweet with revitalising taste. I have added ½. Watch the video below
Kiwis, you can add 1 or 2; it depends on the quantity you make. Peel off the skin and cut in four to blend easily.
Mango adds the most flavour and aroma. I adore sweet mango with an intense smell that wins my heart all the time.
Mango adds the most flavour and makes this Tropical Smoothie taste and smell fabulous.
Lime – okay, I have to admit that I have added some drops for freshness. Mint smells fantastic; I like to add some to my cocktails or smoothies.
Pineapple water or milk
I went on with milk as I didn’t have pineapple water or pineapple juice. Milk with fruits make a lovely pair; this is why I like making smoothies often in my house.
Blend everything, top some mint leaves and enjoy any time you want.
