Are you ready to expand your smoothie -making skills? Are you ready to start experimenting with new and more exotic flavors? Then get ready today to try a Vitamix Tropical Smoothie!
As you know we have been making, sipping and just plain enjoying all the wonderful smoothies that we are making in the Vitamix this summer. Some of our more successful smoothies (and the ones that we have shared here) include:
Each smoothie, even though they are very different flavors, all have one thing in common- they are cool and smooth and “creamy” thanks to the power of the Vitamix.
Well today we got a bit creative, thanks to an impromptu run to Trader Joe’s. Our Tucson store is practically overflowing with rip wonderful summer fruits, almost irresistible really!
But when we zipped by the cantaloupes, we knew we were taking one home with us. Once the fruit was in the cart, another item jumped out as we shopped: Trader Joe’s Light Coconut milk.
It was an A-HA moment for us in the store.
Once we were back, we diced up the fruit and added it to the blender along with Mango cubes, coconut milk, ice and water. A little shot of Trader Joe’s Agave syrup at the end just balanced the sweet fruit with the more savory coconut milk.
Icy… Cool….Just the perfect afternoon pick- me -up! (next time we will think about the rum before we get back home)
What you need:
- 1 Cup diced cantaloupe
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Mango Cubes
- 1/2 Cup Trader Joe’s coconut Milk
- 1/2 Cup water
- 4 Ice Cubes
- Agave Syrup or Honey if you like
1. Combine all Tropical Smoothie ingredients in the Vitamix and blend until just smooth (about 30 seconds)
2. Taste and add Agave Syrup or honey if you like.
This Vitamix Tropical Smoothie was just perfect for a HOT Arizona afternoon. But like I said earlier…. We were wishing that perhaps some Rum was around to…you know…. test it out….. for the blog readers only…. (yeah, right!)
