Tropical Fruit Smoothie 

Imagine you’re spending a hot summer day out in the yard, running errands, or on your kid’s soccer sideline. You’re depleted in a way you can’t even articulate, and then you take a long sip of this fresh, fruity, icy dream! 

I can hear the steel drums already! These smoothies are also amazing for a poolside treat. You can throw it together super easily but it packs a powerful punch of flavor! Also, if by chance coconut is not your thing, I have some variations listed below for you! 

If you’re making this smoothie for adults, add your favorite liquor! Rum is a great complement to these flavors, but you can add vodka, tequila, or even wine to make a little frozen spritzer.

Why You’ll Love This Smoothie Recipe

It’s so refreshing and healthy! The flavor, consistency, and temperature make this smoothie perfect for a hot day. Plus, you can sip it down knowing you’re getting nutrients! People always ask me, “are fruit smoothies healthy? Fruit is sugary.” It’s true that fruit has sugar in it, but I think the day we start to demonize fruit is the day we need to calm down. Fruit is a wholesome treat, so enjoy your smoothie to the fullest!

It’s dairy-free! I know a lot of my readers have issues with dairy, whether it’s an allergy, sensitivity, or general dislike. You don’t have to worry about that here – we use coconut milk for creaminess and extra tropical flavor. 

One sip transports you! I think it’s important to enjoy the small joys and successes in our daily lives, and this smoothie is one of them! If you can take a few sips of a smoothie and feel reminded of vacation or a more peaceful time, I think that’s worth celebrating.
