tropical smoothie recipe

I don’t know what it is, but tropical anything is always my favorite.  I especially love the combination of mangoes, pineapples and coconut water.  These ingredients are not only delicious, they also super healthy.  Fruits like mangoes and pineapples are rich in vitamins and minerals as well as anti aging phytonutrients.  Coconut water is wonderful at hydrating the body, which is perfect for glowing, youthful skin.

 Today, I wanted to share a tropical smoothie recipe, made with some of my favorite fruits such as mango, banana and pineapples.  For some extra tropical flavor, I threw in coconut water and a teaspoon of flax seed for omega 3’s.
