Tropical Strength Smoothie Recipe
This smoothie is based around tropical fruits. Imagine showing off your muscle gains while drinking one of these on a beach on a Pacific island. It’s especially great for cooling down on a hot day or after an intense workout.
Adding papaya and mango to a smoothie creates a really great smoothness to the texture of the drink. I especially like papaya, as it is easier to get into the blender (a mango has a seed you have to cut around) and the flavor isn’t overwhelming.
- 1 Banana
- 1 Cup Papaya
- 1 cup Mango
- 1 cup Coconut Milk
- 1 tbsp Shredded Coconut
- 1/4 cup Macadamia Nuts
- 2 Scoops Protein
Blend the coconut milk protein and nuts on their own. This ensures the protein is well mixed and not clumpy and the nuts are blended into a drinkable form. Add the rest of the ingredients, turn some Israel Kamakawiwoʻole on the radio, close your eyes and imagine a tropical paradise.
- Strawberry protein is the flavor I like best with this blend of fruits.
- Add some pineapple. It goes great with the tropical theme of this shake and adds some bromelain to your diet. Bromelain is often sold as a supplement, but is naturally found in pineapple. Gym-bros love it.
- If the coconut milk is too much for your needs (too much fat for example), switch to coconut water instead. Also great tasting, but very different nutritional makeup. A cup of coconut water has 0g of fat.
