Ingredients for a Fruit Smoothie
This rich and creamy fruit smoothie is made with only the best ingredients! I recommend using all fresh fruit, not canned. This will give the smoothie so much flavor! I especially love to use fresh, sweet pineapple; the canned version doesn’t do the fruit any justice. I also add loads of strawberries, kiwis, banana, blueberries and even some papaya. I like to freeze the strawberry and blueberry and use the frozen berries in place of ice. I really don’t like watered-down drinks! Feel free to add your favorite tropical fruits to the mix!
To add even more tropical flavor, I use coconut milk and sweetened the fruit smoothie with raw honey instead of sugar. If you’re busy in the mornings and think you don’t have the time to make this, you do! Just prepare all your ingredients the night before and kick-start your morning with this antioxidant-rich drink!
