Want to get away?  Meaning on a tropical vacation with the sand in your toes and the ocean breeze whipping through your hair?  I know I do, but it’s just not going to happen.  

The closest I’m getting to the tropics is through my taste buds, and that’s where this Tropical Smoothie comes in.  

Fresh pineapple, mango and banana along with a twist of key lime juice equals tropical paradise in a glass. 🙂

I’ve been over-indulging in pineapple and mango for the past month at least.  That’s not a bad thing, but it’s almost turning into a problem.  Mango has found its way into my guacamole, salsa and shrimp ceviche, and it finally made it to my smoothie. 🙂

The funny thing is that I purchased mango and pineapple with the sole intention of making this smoothie long ago and got side tracked a few times.  

Maybe about a dozen times, but who’s counting?

The important thing is that I finally got around to making this tropical smoothie recipe and sharing it with you.  My boys were my prime taste testers, and they were over the moon about it.  That’s because there’s not much the average person wouldn’t love here.  

I used fresh pineapple and mango chunks, which I’d cut and placed in my freezer until I was ready to use them.  These fruits are so sweet and so inexpensive right now, but if you’re pressed for time and prefer not to prep your own fruit, by all means use frozen.

I always have frozen ripe bananas in my freezer for smoothies and banana bread, so I used one here, too.  Bananas lend even more tropical flavor, and make the smoothie thick and creamy.  

I kept up with the tropical theme by adding coconut milk, and added some Greek yogurt for a nice tang as well as a protein boost.
