Summer is just around the corner and this tropical flavoured smoothie is just what you need to enjoy in the sunshine! Naturally sweetened with strawberries and pineapple, no added sugar here. Plus a nice boost of protein from the hemp hearts that you’ll never guess are in there. Perfectly healthy, packed with 8g of protein, tons of vitamin C, and ALL the delicious! You really need to try this strawberry pineapple smoothie, it’s like dessert in a glass. And hey, if you want to add a splash of vodka in there, I’m not judging!
What I love about this smoothie is that it’s simple to make, and works well using fresh or frozen fruit. So really, whatever you have on hand will be great! Frozen fruit will make this smoothie a little thicker and creamier, but fresh fruit works just as well. If you are going with all frozen, you may need an extra splash or two of almond milk to get it moving.
Just add all your ingredients into your blender and process until smooth. If you’re using a high powered blender, you’ll have no trouble at all. If your blender is struggling with frozen fruit, just add a little more milk or water.
Garnish your smoothie with a slice of pineapple or strawberry to add an extra layer of tropicalness. Now go sit outside, preferably on a lounge chair or pool side and enjoy! 🙂
