Here’s a delicious smoothie that’s perfect for your next breakfast or brunch: Sunny Tropical Smoothie! This smoothie is packed with fresh fruit and has vitamin C, vitamin D, and calcium
With all the cold weather we’ve had lately, I’m dreaming of beautiful weather these days. I don’t get outside as much as I should during the winter since I’m not a huge fan of cold weather, so I’m craving lots of sunshine and fresh air. I can’t wait for warmer weather again! Right now would be an amazing time to take a tropical vacation.
If you’re dreaming of warm days and sunshine like I am, here’s a quick tropical escape that will tide you over until your next vacation. This Sunny Tropical Smoothie is perfect any time of year, but it’s amazing in the winter when you need a little sunshine. The golden color of this smoothie and it’s fresh fruity taste is the perfect pick-me-up during winter days!
Since I have a sweet tooth, I’m always looking for ways to balance my nutrition and reduce my sugar intake. We love having orange juice as a treat with our weekend pancake breakfasts, and Trop50 juice beverage is great way to include juice in our family breakfasts while sticking to our healthy eating goals.
If you’re working on eating healthier this year and achieving a more balanced lifestyle, Trop50 is a yummy swap for regular orange juice if you’re watching your sugar and calories. Trop 50 has 50% fewer calories and sugar than regular orange juice! Trop50 is also amazing in recipes, like my Sunny Tropical Smoothie, so you can get creative and add it to lots of recipes.
If you’re curious about flavor, Trop50 tastes amazing! It has no artificial sweeteners in it and it’s squeezed from fresh oranges – never from concentrate. Not only is it lower in calories and sugar, 1 glass of Trop50 also provides 100% of your daily vitamin C needs and is a great source of potassium.
The Trop50 I used in this smoothie recipe is also fortified with calcium and vitamin D (yay!) so you can feel great about what you’re drinking and mixing in your smoothies.
In this recipe I used golden kiwis for a less green and more golden color, but if you’re having trouble finding golden kiwis, you can definitely use the green ones instead and it will taste just as amazing.
