Tropical Smoothies

Ingredients:

Use your favorite combination of tropical fruits. I like to blend up mango and bananas for my smoothie drinks. I also recommend using orange juice or cranberry juice for a really great taste.

Other ingredients you can add to your smoothies are honey or agave syrup for some sweetness and ice to keep your smoothie nice and cool. The ice is an important part of the recipe, as the Vitamix blender is so strong and works so fast it can heat up your smoothie.

What to do:

Place all the fruits into your blender and add some ice to keep it nice and cool. To serve 1-2 people I would cut up 1 large banana and two mangos and use about 1 cup of juice. Make sure that the lid is locked on nice and tight. Now blend together for a minute until you get a nice, creamy drink. The amount of blending required will vary by the brand of blender that you have. You may have to make a few smoothies and experiment a bit to see what works for you.

That is it! Pour your finished drink into glasses and enjoy the thick and creamy, yet healthy snack anytime of the day. Naturally you will need to adjust the recipe for your particular tastes and amount of people you are serving.

So now you know how easy it is to make a Tropical Smoothie at home. What I like best, is that you can use up any ripe fruits that you might have and you will know exactly what is in your smoothie. You can also adjust the taste and texture just the way you like it.
