Transport yourself to vacation mode with this Tropical Smoothie recipe. It’s super simple to whip up and will make you feel like you’re on a deserted island!
Holy deliciousness! I was at the grocery store and there was a plethora of fresh pineapple and papaya to be had. My kids are obsessed which makes me happy considering that papayas and pineapples are both high in Vitamin C as well as contain enzymes that help break down protein in the body, thereby aiding digestion. This Tropical Smoothie is a great way to get kids to eat fruit and yogurt without having to twist their arms. Reminds me of the luscious smoothies Chloe and I had in Hawaii this summer!
With only three ingredients, this smoothie couldn’t be easier to make. If you’re trying to encourage smoothies for your kids, get them involved in making them! I know when mine were younger they loved getting to press the button on the blender which in turn made them more excited to drink every last sip of their creation!
Some of my favorite healthy smoothies to start with for kids are Cotton Candy Smoothie, Blueberry Chia Smoothie and this Mango Spiced Smoothie. There are tons more recipes on the website. You can find them all at this link! Smoothies are my favorite way to get good-for-you fruits and vegetables into your body!
Just one taste of this Tropical Smoothie and you’ll be absolutely hooked. When I first made it for my kids they were back for seconds in what seemed like seconds! Nothing makes me happier than when I really nail it with a recipe that they love that I also feel good about giving to them. Feel free to use frozen or fresh pineapple and papaya for this recipe too. The frozen give this a little icier thick version which is so yummy.
