I used one large frozen banana and skipped the ice. Good but a really runny smoothie. I would make this again but I would drain the pineapple first.-31 Jul 2012
This recipe was very creamy! I cut the recipe and half and had more than enough. I also used twice the number of ice cubes because i like my smoothies with more ice, but it is truly up to you.-20 Oct 2002
Tropical Summer Fruit Smoothie
70's! We've cooled down to the 70's. Aaaaahhhhh I never thought I'd be so happy to say only 78 degrees today!! We did order our air conditioner. It's been shipped, should be here next week and I'm BEYOND excited to receive it. Cuz August has yet to arrive. But I'm going to be lounging right next to my fabulous cooling device with a tall glass of these (wonderfully orange!) Tropical Summer Fruit Smoothie in my hand.
We've been on a massive smoothie kick for the past couple months, not just because of warming weather but winter was rough. Far too much take out. Now, when I say "we" are on a smoothie kick, I mean the Boyf got on a smoothie kick and whipped my hoighty toighty "I dont doooo smoothies" butt into shape (for reals said that. Literally ate my words 5 minutes later cuz it was SO delicious. And healthy!).
Anyhoo, he's been blending up smoothies left and right so be prepared for a few more fabulous smoothie recipes coming your way! This particular smoothie is one of my own invention. I basically attempted to remember what the "mango a go-go" at Jamba Juice tasted like and this was the result, minus all the sugary sherbet. Deeee-licious! I did use some of Nancy's Vanilla Yogurt (organic, probiotic filled, all-healthy all the time fantastic yogurt) to smoooooth out the fruit in the smooooothie (I'm a ROLL with the puns lately). I also used a copious amount of orange juice. Frozen fruit does not like to blend! Learned to add the juice first and theeeen the fruit, helps the blades blend better.
To achieve a thick and creamy texture, the majority of the recipe is frozen fruit. Grocery stores sell frozen mangoes, pineapples, and strawberries to make this recipe quick and convenient to prepare. If you have fresh ripe ingredients available use them.
They will have a stronger taste impact because they are at their peak. Cut the pineapple and mango into about 1-inch pieces and freeze in a single layer until completely hardened. Hull the strawberries but keep them whole when freezing. Slice up fresh bananas to add extra creamy texture to the smoothie.
How to Make this Tropical Fruit Smoothie Recipe
Smoothies are so easy to make, but they are packed with nutrients so they make a great quick breakfast!
To start out, you’ll want to grab a great blender.
Add in the milk, banana, orange juice, and fruit. Blend until there are no more chunks of fruit and the mixture is completely smooth. Give your smoothie a shake and blend one more time to make sure you didn’t miss anything.
Pour the smoothie into a cup and enjoy!
Island Luau Tropical Smoothie
I’ve professed my love for smoothies plenty of times on this blog but I feel the need to say it again, I freakin LOVE smoothies!! I blame you all for getting me temporarily hooked to Jamba Juice last year. Luckily the addiction wasn’t as strong as my McDonalds real fruit smoothie addiction and I was able to kick it within a month.
Just dump and blend! Gotta love easy smoothie recipes!!
Mainly because Jamba Juice is so easy to recreate at home with so many cloned recipes floating around the web. If I was to ever have a little cafe I would serve up smoothies and wraps. I’m the queen at making a good smoothie and a banging wrap honey! Try me!! Today I want to share with you this easy, refreshing, delicious recipe for an Island Luau Tropical Smoothie.
I simply adore cream of coconut!! I put it in ice cream, cocktails, cakes…love it!!
I made this a couple years ago when I had a family luau. I wasn’t expecting it to be that great just needed something quick, cold and refreshing to serve up to guests who arrived 2 hours early. This smoothie hit the spot and got rave reviews. Everyone claimed it had “a little something in it” because it left them feeling rather bubbly. My family is always claiming drinks has a lil sum sum in them lol. I think we’re wanna-be lushes.
My perfect smoothie texture: Creamy and icy!
Anywho, about this tropical smoothie!! It’s the bomb. So make it, m-kay. I just love that slight hint of sweet coconut that the cream of coconut lends to this drink. The frozen strawberries, bananas and mangos are like a match made in heaven. Next time I think I’ll throw in some papaya! Oooh lala!! I’m really not an orange sherbet person but in this smoothie it WORKS and it’s a must to kick up that yummy tropical flavor.
These make fun, girl-talk drinks!
I’d almost want to call this a dessert smoothie because it’s sweet, thick and pretty filling.
I made this once using pineapple juice and frozen pineapples because it totally seems like a winner right? Me no likey! Something about the pineapple and orange juice left a weird aftertaste. I replaced them both with apple juice and yasssss ma’am it was just what this smoothie needed. Whodathunkit!
Tropical Dragon Fruit Smoothie
Tropical Dragon Fruit Smoothie is a combination of some of the healthiest and most flavorful tropical fruits readily available. My favorite thing about this particular smoothie is that you can taste each individual fruit. The mango comes through, the pineapple is subtle, banana thickens the smoothie and adds just enough flavor and the dragon fruit with strawberries make this smoothie beautiful. Add a pinch of honey for extra sweetness according to your personal taste.

Supplies For Making The Best Kratom Smoothies
Let’s concentrate on making green kratom smoothies. Green smoothies have loads of benefits and seem to be the newest craze in the health industry. Here are the most popular greens that you could use as a base for your smoothie.
- Kale – This leafy green is one of the most nutrient-rich choices. It contains a large amount of vitamins A, K, C, B6, as well as manganese, calcium, copper, potassium, and magnesium. Kale contains loads of antioxidants and is known to help lower cholesterol.
- Spinach – Rich in vitamins K, A, C, and antioxidants. Spinach helps support brain health, eye health, and blood pressure.
- Arugula – contains high levels of calcium, potassium, and folate, as well as vitamins C, K, and A.
In our recipes, we will be using kale as our base. However, feel free to choose a substitute when it comes to leafy greens.
Coco Kratom Smoothies
Our Coco kratom smoothie tends to be a favorite. It has just the right amount of sweetness to make your taste buds come alive. If you want to be adventurous, remember you can always add or take away ingredients that you like or dislike. We encourage you to make each smoothie recipe your own.
- Combine cocoa (1½ tablespoons), cinnamon (1 teaspoon), almond or coconut milk (2 cups), and raw kale (2 cups) in a blender.
- Mix on low until all of the ingredients are combined. You want to be sure that your leafy ingredients are well mixed with no lumps.
- Add in 2 cups of your favorite fruit. We like to use strawberries and bananas as they both go well with chocolate.
- Continue to blend on low until all ingredients are combined.
- Add in your kratom powder.
- Blend on low.
You’re ready to enjoy your smoothie. You can drink it as is or add in some ice to make it cold. A lot of people like to put a few ice cubes in when they are blending their smoothies.

Green Smoothie Subs and Swaps
Here are a few swaps that’ll still result in a delicious, tropical smoothie!
Use different fruit. Pineapple or mango not your thing? Replace with with another tropical fruit! Instead of using a ½ cup of each, feel free to use 1 cup of just mango or pineapple, or even swap one of them for papaya, kiwi, or strawberries.
Use any green! Feel free to use kale (or any other green that you love) in place of spinach here!
Use yogurt instead of coconut milk. Greek yogurt or regular yogurt will still make your smoothie super creamy and delicious. Be sure to grab the full-fat variety so that you still get a good dose of healthy fats!
Feel free to omit the chia seeds if you don’t have them or would just prefer to go without!
