Almond Breeze Tropical Sunshine Smoothie

tropical morning smoothie recipeI am a big fan of the podcast. I love to listen to them while I am kitchen. I feel like someone is hanging out with me and I always learn something new. I really love the Simple Mom podcast. I learn a lot about running a blog business, motherhood, and simple living. On one episode, Lisa Bryne was the guest, she teaches wellness classes and knows a ton about nutrition and good health. She mentioned that allergy sufferers should eat tropical fruit in the winter months to help alleviate some of the symptoms. My husband has terrible allergies, and we are willing to try just about anything to get him through allergy season. So papaya, pineapple, and mango it is!

I made a big pitcher of these, and froze them so he could grab one on his way out the door. Make ahead smoothies have made our mornings run much smoother. (No pun intended.)Β  My new product obsession? Roasted Coconut Chips from Trader Joe’s. They are delicious. Slightly sweet, slightly salty. I love to snack on them, blend them into a smoothie, mix into some granola, or add to a salad. I buy a few bags at a time because they sell out sometimes. How could you not have a good day when you start off with a cup full of sunshine?

papaya I have eaten papaya before, but I had never used one in my kitchen before. It is so beautiful when you slice it open, the contrast of the orange and black. So pretty.

    Yesterday my husband and I planned our vacation this year, We are going to spend the 4th of July in San Diego with out son. This drink really reminds me of a beachy drink and makes me even more excited to go. I will have to drink this a few times when I get antsy about going. It sounds delicious.

    Those coconut chips are a lot like Biscoff – I cannot have them in the house! I had them a few months ago and ate an entire bag… so tasty!! Brian will love these smoothies, he’s a big smoothie fan and the idea of make ahead is a great one since he wakes the entire house up with the blender in the early mornings!

    1. bakedbree

      For. Real. Make aheads make for an easy morning.

  12. Jessica

    I just bought a bag of roasted coconut chips at Trader Joe’s. I ate them all in one sitting. In my car. In the parking lot of Trader Joe’s. They are that good.
