Tropical Smoothie Recipe
My family and I LOVE smoothies. I pretty much eat a smoothie almost every day. The key with smoothies for us is to make it into a meal replacement. I don’t like feeling hungry an hour or two hours later.
Smoothies can be filling. The way I make them filling is by making sure it incorporates all of the macros I need for the day including: protein, carbs, and fat.
My smoothie recipe usually looks something like this:
I use this basic “formula” for pretty much every smoothie I make. For tropical or citrus fruits I use a vanilla protein powder, and for berries I use a chocolate protein powder.
This summer I have been craving a tropical smoothie. Here is our favorite Tropical Smoothie Recipe. I usually do almond butter with this one and either coconut milk or water:
Tropical Smoothie Recipe:
1-2 Cups frozen Tropical fruit mix (I use Target’s good and gather tropical frozen fruit blend)
1-2 Tbsp Nut Butter
1 Cup milk of choice or water
1 Scoop Vanilla Complete by Juice Plus+
Combine them all in a blender, blend it till it’s your desired consistency and eat! If you want a thinner smoothie, then use more liquid. If you prefer a thick smoothie like me, then use less liquid.
