Tips For Making The Best Tropical Smoothie:
Here are a few tips and tricks for making the best tropical breakfast smoothie:
- Frozen fruit is a must for someone who wants a thick and smooth recipe. It will not only blend easier but will have a stronger fruity flavor.
- Make sure you are using enough liquid in the smoothie to keep the blender from getting chunks of fruit stuck in the blender. Also, make sure to put the softer ingredients in beforehand.
- Combine the smoothie ingredients for a minute or two until it looks pureed. I love blending the smoothie a bit longer because it becomes silky smooth!
- Using a high-powdered blender is always beneficial with smoothie recipes. It will not only help blend the ingredients easier, but it can reduce the risk of chunks getting stuck in the blades.
- One thing I love to make with leftover smoothies is popsicles! You can just pour the leftover smoothie into popsicle molds and freeze!
Sometimes it’s ok to try out different variations of ingredients to enhance your recipe or to just add to it. Here are some great things you can add to your smoothie recipe:
- Protein Powder
- Greek Yogurt
- Chia Seeds
- Other Fruits
What Is The Best Fruit For Breakfast Smoothies?
This tropical breakfast smoothie is so good and uses a great choice of fruits to make it. This recipe first uses coconut water to blend the ingredients and add more flavor. Along with the water comes ginger root, mango, pineapple, celery, and cucumber with a splash of lime juice. All of these choices of fruits are super refreshing and sweet with a slightly sour and tangy flavor.
Is It Better To Use Fresh or Frozen Fruit For Tropical Smoothies?
I always use frozen fruit for smoothies because it not only blends easier, but it can be super helpful when it comes to the consistency of the recipe. If you want a thick, creamy, and smooth recipe, make sure to use frozen fruit. However, if you don’t have frozen, you can add ice cubes to the recipe.
