Tropical Green Smoothie Recipe

Hello there, friends! I’m back with a third blog post for this month. I bet you didn’t realize you’d be hearing from me so many times. Frankly, I didn’t realize it either, but sometimes that’s the way life works. I’m here yet again because I have something pretty awesome to share with you today. It’s my new tropical green smoothie recipe. Plus, as a bonus, I’m giving away a single serving blender from Hamilton Beach and Stonyfield. How cool is that? So, really, that’s two new reasons for me to come to you today. Yay!

Tropical Green Smoothie Recipe

Let’s talk a bit about this smoothie recipe. I actually created the first version of this last year in May during Jazz Fest. Last year my brother (there as an assistant to his girlfriend at the time) worked at a local restaurant/bar here in New Orleans helping to serve thousands upon thousands of bottles of beer and mixed drinks over the seven days of Jazz Fest.

At one point they were telling me about how they had trouble stopping and eating because they were so busy so I made them these tropical green smoothies as a way for them to drink their breakfast or lunch. I held on to this recipe for a while not really knowing when to publish it. However, when I had a chance to giveaway this blender, I knew that it was time for my tropical green smoothie recipe to hit the scene.

This smoothie is a balanced and tasty combination of fruits and vegetables. The smoothie gets its green color from spinach and avocado. The fruits I used were frozen pineapple and a frozen tropical mix of fruit containing strawberries, mango and banana. Of course, I used Stonyfield yogurt and some whole milk plus a little honey for extra sweetness. This smoothie is not only tasty but is also filling, satisfying, and nutritious. Can’t really beat that!

Now let’s talk about this blender. It’s a pretty cool gadget. It’s small and quite easy to use, of course. And it’s perfect for making smoothies for one. If you’re so inclined, you could even drink your smoothie straight out of the blender. The lid is designed to where it easily transforms into a travel lid. How cool is that?

Also, the capacity on this blender is pretty great. It holds up to 14 ounces, which is just shy of two cups. This means you can make a real meal sized smoothie in this baby and not even have to go through multiple blend cycles. I like that a lot. Finally, another wonderful convenience: the jar is dishwasher safe. So after you enjoy your smoothie in the blending jar, you can put it straight into the dishwasher. That’s pretty darn convenient!

I’m pretty jazzed to have a single serving sized blender. All I had before was my huge Ninja heavy duty blender combo. Granted, that thing is great and it came with single serving sized jars, but I love the nimbleness and convenience of my new Hamilton Beach single serve blender. Also, this baby has power relative to its size. It was able to easily blend my frozen ingredients, which is important when it comes to smoothie blenders.
