My Tropical Fruit Smoothie includes fruit that make my think of sunny tropical islands, that I would love to escape to. I have used a delicious mix of freshly juiced pineapple, melon and orange along with my all essential smoothie ingredient, the banana.
I am currently reviewing a juicer I was sent recently and so far I’m absolutely loving it. In my bid to be quite thorough, I’m attempting to juice a good variety and fruit and vegetables. So watch this space for my full review and hopefully more juicing recipes.
Tropical Fruit Smoothie recipe
- 1 orange
- ½ small galia melon
- ¼ pineapple
- 1 banana
- Juice the orange, melon and pineapple.
- Cut the banana into chunks.
- Place the orange, melon and pineapple juice in a blender along with the banana, then blitz until smooth.
- Enjoy straight away.
I made this juice mid morning and it really did help fill me up until lunchtime. I don’t know about you but snacking is my greatest downfall. However, I’ve come to the conclusion if a snack includes one or two of my five a day then it’s not a bad thing at all!
I’m trying really hard to reduce my personal intake of dare I say it cake, biscuits and chocolate too. I decided I wanted to reign back my intake of refined sugar, so this week I’ve gone cold turkey! The first two days were the hardest and I’m really pleased that I haven’t caved in.
Please don’t worry there will be plenty of scrumptious cake and cookie recipes in the future, I don’t think my children would forgive me if I gave up baking! In fact, I’ve been roped into baking cupcakes for a school fundraising event next week, so they might just be featured on the blog too.
I would love to hear about your favourite juicing recipes ideas whilst I’m carrying out the juicer review. Plus, if you have any top tips on fruits and vegetables to avoid that would be really helpful too.
Until next time.
