Summer of Smoothies: All-Tropical Vacation Smoothie

Fruity drinks and the beach are made for each other. After a full day of sun, sand, and salt water, there’s nothing like having a sweet, smooth, and cold drink – maybe with a little rum in it. The All-Tropical Vacation Smoothie is here to be your go-to when things get too hot. And there’s more than just flavor going on here. The pineapple is rich in both vitamin C and enzymes, while the coconut milk adds its electrolytes and immunity-boosting lauric acid. The bananas provide potassium and the mangoes bring even more vitamins and enzymes, plus their added sweetness.

With all this going on, the All-Tropical Vacation Smoothie is perfect for both relaxing and restoring. It’s a perfect balance of tropical fruit flavor – delicious on its own as a healthy snack, or spiked as a festive summer cocktail.
