Tropical Fruit Smoothie

Tropical Fruit Smoothie

Whip up this delicious, healthy tropical fruit smoothie for the family on a hot summer’s day, or add it to your morning smoothie repertoire. The fresh flavours – mango, banana, and coconut, are reminiscent of the flavours you’d find while lounging on the beach in a getaway resort. This wholesome smoothie is rich and filling, and lends well to any superfood addition you love, such as hemp hearts, chia seeds, matcha powder, or hemp protein.

I love smoothies, and so do the kids. Nowadays, it’s just about the only way I can convince them to eat their veggies. This tropical fruit smoothie is delicious year round, but especially delicious when you use frozen mango and banana. Once blended they transform this smoothie into a rich and dense ice-cream – so rich and dense you can eat it with a spoon!

Whichever way you prepare this the kids are bound to love it – and so will you. So close your eyes, listen to some Beach Boys songs, and just imagine the sun and the beach as you dig into (preferably with a spoon) this refreshing treat.

Ingredients
    1 ripe banana, fresh or frozen
  • 1 large mango, frozen (or fresh)
  • 1 tbs. coconut flakes
  • 1 tbs. ground flax
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (or milk of choice)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla
  • 1 tsp. extra-virgin coconut oil (optional)
Directions

Chop banana into 2-3 inch pieces and add to large food processor.  Remove mango (previously frozen and chopped into 2-3 inch pieces) from the freezer and add to the processor with all the other ingredients.

Blend until smooth and creamy and well combined.  This makes quite a thick smoothie (thick enough to almost not be able to drink with a straw!) so if you prefer it less dense you can add more milk and blend until you get the desired consistency. Enjoy with a straw or a spoon.
