How to Prepare a Mouth-Watering Tropical Smoothie

Are you looking to experiment with a tropical smoothie after having a sudden mango, papaya, or pineapple craving?

Mango Tropical Smoothie

A tropical smoothie is easily prepared using exotic fruits as its base.

Plus, these exotic inspired smoothies still taste delicious and great for all-round health and well-being, especially when self-prepared at home.

Tropical fruits include:

Each of these fruits is rich in natural sugar, which makes for a wonderfully tasting smoothie that is free of added sugars or artificial sweeteners. Plus, these fruits are rich in vitamins and minerals which provide incredible health benefits.

Overall, these fruit flavors can provide perfect liquid refreshment for hot sunny days.

Preparing tropical smoothies

A pleasing aspect of the tropical fruit inspired smoothie is the fruits are easily sourced at the local supermarket. Also, exotic fruits are more affordable in season. A cost-effective option is to purchase the exotic fruits in frozen form and keep them on hand in the freezer until wishing to prepare the next batch of drinks.

If you already have a preferred exotic fruit in mind, you just need to find a selection of mouth-watering smoothie recipes to make full use of the chosen ingredients.

Here are two popular tropical smoothie recipes

Peach & Mango

A super-easy peach and mango smoothie recipe is absolutely delicious and simple to make. Before you start to prepare the smoothie, make sure to source the ingredients, including:

  • 1-inch chunks of fresh mango (1/2 of whole fruit)
  • 1-inch chunks of fresh peach (1 medium size fruit)
  • 1.5 cups of orange juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1 cup of ice cubes

Optional extras

  • 1 tbsp of protein powder (brown rice is recommended)
  • 1 tbsp of non-fat Greek yogurt

Pour the freshly prepared ingredients into a high-performance smoothie maker and blend for 45-60 seconds. Taste the smoothie as you go.

If the consistency of the smoothie is too thick make sure to pour in more fruit juice. But, if the drink appears too watery, try to use extra fruit or more ice to help thicken it up. A thicker consistency similar to a milkshake is possible to achieve by adding in extra ice cubes. But, for those that prefer the juice-like consistency, make sure to add more liquid.


A delicious papaya smoothie is an easy to prepare recipe that provides great healing and health benefits. Easily sourced ingredients include:

  • 1-inch chunks of fresh papaya (1/2 to 1 cup)
  • 1 cup of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1-inch chunks of fresh peach (1 whole fruit)
  • 1 cup of almond milk
  • 1 tbsp of Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp of almond butter
  • ½ cup of ice cubes (or more to get the preferred texture)

Blend in a smoothie maker for 45-60 seconds or until the desired texture is achieved. You can increase the strawberries in this recipe if preferred to get a sweet-taste that helps to control the stronger flavors in the exotic fruits.
