Tropical Smoothie

May 14, 2014 § Leave a comment

At this point my love for smoothies may be bordering on obsession. I have one every day, often for breakfast. And then I usually end up wanting to make another one later in the afternoon too. They’re just so darn delicious!

Last week after making some coconut rice there was some leftover coconut milk just sitting in my fridge and thus I was inspired to make a tropical smoothie. The coconut milk makes it creamy and adds a great depth of flavor. My based was orange juice and chia seeds. Then added banana, mango and pineapple. If you want to make it healthy you can even add spinach when it’s all said and done. Enjoy!


  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup frozen mango and pineapple

To Make
1) Pour orange juice in the blender. Add chia seeds and let sit for several minutes.
2) Add in coconut milk and fruit and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
