Woo-wee! Ladies & gents, meet my new love, the Tropical Mint Smoothie Bowl. There are no words for the luscious goodness that is this bowl of heaven. I still can’t believe how delicious this turned out! I’ve made it THREE times in the last few days. That’s how good. The mint and lime juice make for a seriously refreshing smoothie bowl. I had a little party topping it off with all the goods. My personal favorite was the chopped peanuts! They were the bomb. I love adding chia seeds and a little granola to my smoothie bowls for added lasting power. The chia seeds really do help me going longer. It is a great alternative to protein powder.
Wether you make this in a bowl, or in a jar on the go, it is a delight! It is by far my favorite green smoothie. It’s packed with two heaping handfuls of baby spinach which you cant taste at all. Even my kids have been downing this. My son (3) is dead set on his “orange smoothie” which is actually a tropical fruit smoothie. So when I gave him this he was like, “What the what, mom?” So I told him I colored it green for Halloween! Ha ha ha ha. If that’s not a mom win, I don’t know what is… He drank it and liked it too! Ya baby!
You can customize this to your personal taste. I really liked mixing tropical fruit with the greens. I feel like they compliment each other rather than compete in flavor. I used half almond coconut milk and half coconut water for the liquid which I felt like turned out really well. What is your dream smoothie bowl filled with? Tons of fruit? Snickers? Lol… Let’s dream up something good together.
Here is the recipe:
- 2 frozen bananas, sliced
- 1 cup frozen pineapple & mango
- 2 cups spinach leaves

- Blueberries, strawberries, orange slices, sliced kiwi, chopped peanuts, shredded coconut, almond coconut granola, white chia seeds, black chia seeds, chopped mint leaves.
- Place all smoothie ingredients in high powered blender and blend until very smooth.
- Top with desired toppings and enjoy!
I hope your Thursday is full of happy & yummy! Keep living the dream!
