• Tropical Mint Smoothie

    June 19, 2013

    Here’s the winning smoothie from the Silk blogger competition! Just in time for summer!

    TropicalMintSmoothie

    I’m completely obsessed with this smoothie. The flavors are incredible together. Banana, pineapple, mint, and coconut combine to make a refreshingly delicious and tropical-tasting smoothie. A little bit of honey adds a touch of sweetness and the Silk Pure Coconut Vanilla gives it a rich, creamy texture. With only five ingredients, this smoothie is super easy to make, so I hope you decide to try it!

    Tropical Smoothie Ingredients

    Ingredients:

    • 1 frozen banana
    • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple (I used canned)
    • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
    • 1 tsp honey
    • 1 cup Silk Pure Coconut Vanilla

    Directions: Combine ingredients in a blender until smooth.

    Makes 1 smoothie

    This sounds like it would be good with some rum in it–kind of like a pina colada?? Just sayin’…

    Ahh! I’ve been reading your blog for quite sometime and have always enjoyed it :) Having said that…and I know you make a living from it now, but you’ve kind of jumped the shark. It’s pretty much just full of “sponsored” posts and all of your sponsored trips. I respect that in the blogger world this probably makes you pretty successful and am happy for you, but this lowly reader is getting board with it :/ This isn’t meant to flame you, just an honest reader opinion.

    this sounds like the ultimate summer refreshment, especially after a hot run. i think frozen pineapple would work great, too.

    mint is the single most refreshing thing you can add to anything really. Fresh basil comes close but not close enough..

    Yumm! I need to try this! :)

    I think that smoothie sounds great, and a great variation from the over used green monster (which I make every morning).

    I am going to try this right away! I wonder how it would taste with some protein powder in it? Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    @Christine @ http://www.idratherbesweating.com:
    It tastes great with or without protein powder. So long as you don’t overdo it the mint and honey provide that ‘protein relief’. Absolutely love it and so glad you shared it with us.

    This sounds sooo good! I printed that coupon and then I was so bummed when I couldn’t find the Silk Latte at our local grocery store the other day! :(

    Coconut, pineapple, and mango are my top three favorite smoothie ingredients!

    This was so good. I thought I remembered the recipe and I forgot the banana and added ice instead. Yummmm! This recipe was how I christened my brand-spankin new Vita-mix!

    I pinned this recipe ages ago and after this morning’s run I wanted a shake but something new- loved this!! Used unsweetened vanilla almond milk, in place of the coconut (although I can’t wait to try it with the coconut) and used maple syrup to sweeten. Yum!!
