Why you should save this

A tasty, tropical flavored flavored smoothie that's actually good for your gut.

Share

I recently bought a Vitamix because I really wanted to make more smoothies and have more plant-based options in my life.

A Vitamix was the natural fit for me and it’s one of my Holy Grail appliances.

I’ve been dreaming of getting a Vitamix for a really long time but we never had space or money to do it. 

We finally have both and it was a really exciting day when I got my blender in the mail.

I’ve been experimenting with lots of smoothie recipes since I got my machine last week, and I wanted to share one of my best creations with you guys.

I’d like to call this a tropical blue smoothie. It includes some really great tropical ingredients and it actually uses one of my other favorite products, Muniq.

Check out the recipe below. It’s really simple to make and absolutely delicious.

What you need to make your tropical blue smoothie

There are a few ingredients you need to make the Smoothie really great they’re all things that you can find around your house or easily find in the frozen section of your grocery store.

It’s really important to use frozen ingredients in your smoothie recipes for two reasons. 

One it creates a thick consistency and makes your smoothies thick without watering them down. 

Two – it keeps your smoothies cold so you don’t have to add additional ice. 

This smoothie includes the following ingredients:

  •  1 cup of frozen pineapple chunks
  •  1 cup of frozen peaches 
  •  1 frozen banana, chopped
  •  1 cup of frozen mango
  •  1 scoop of vital proteins collagen peptides
  •  1 scoop of Muniq Prebiotic fiber 
  •  1 teaspoon of blue spirulina
  •  1 half cup of almond milk

 Keep in mind that this recipe makes two 8 oz smoothies.

I hope you enjoy and be sure to pin the recipe for later if you don’t make it today.

What about blood sugar impact?

As you can see, this plant-based smoothie has a high carb count.

Interestingly enough, I only saw a 20 mg/dL spike from this smoothie despite using tropical fruits that are usually a little higher in sugar.

Your blood sugar may vary, but I thought it was important to share the effects – especially when you might look at the carb count and say “WOAH.”

I fully expected a huge spike from this, but in the scheme of things, my blood sugar actually stayed quite normal.
