This is a tropical smoothie treat with loads of taste and nutrition. Pineapples are a great source of calcium, potassium, fiber, and vitamin C, the mangoes provide potassium and fiber. All that fruit nutrition and it tastes great too!
Its also easy to turn this tropical smoothie treat into even more of a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Unlike the better known Flax seed, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
In your favorite smoothie blender mix:
- ½ cup orange juice
- cup frozen strawberries
- one cup frozen pineapple
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1½ cup soy milk
- 1 Tbsp. Chia seed (or Flax seed if you prefer)
By the way, I know the Macaw picture doesn’t have anything to do with a tropical smoothie, or any other type. But! The bird is so colorful I think it should be enjoyed.
