Tropical pleasure smoothie with fresh tropical fruits .
Summer has started with a bang, and yes it is getting very hot over here, as new house is on north of Houston we get more rain than rest of Houston. As a result my pomegranate plant which is new little kid in the block has leaves turning yellow and loosing it. When I checked in the internet found that it is because of lot of moisture as result stopped watering them, let me see whether they will survive or not. As my daughter’s pediatrician asked her to eat lot of veggies and fruits, she is eating fruits and veggies. I decided to make this delicious smoothie with her favorite fruits. This tropical pleasure smoothie contains mango, pineapple, papaya, orange ginger and lemon.
Beauty of this recipe is that it doesn’t have any added sugar and only the natural sugar from the fruits. I like to add ginger and lemon to my smoothie and juice, the kick which ginger gives is just awesome. I was planning to add some coconut water to the smoothie but I couldn’t find a nice coconut, sometimes it is too ripe so that you get taste of coconut oil in it. You need to get very tender ones. This smoothie is devoid of any my new found seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds and Goji berries. It has just simple tropical pleasure.
Make sure to grab ripe papaya which is more orange in color as it is sweeter, same with mango. Trust me this smoothie is antioxidant rich (Pineapple, papaya), Vitamin C (lemon) rich and helps digestive health (ginger) and touch of cinnamon and lemon zest as flavoring without any extra sugar. I used unsweetened almond milk to make it creamier you can use your favorite milk. You don’t need to do a trip to tropics to enjoy this delicious smoothie. You can have it at the comfort of home. Then you can get full feel of the fruit.
Here comes the delicious smoothie with favorite fruits.
