Tropical Protein Smoothies are a great healthy addition to your breakfast routine from summer to winter. You may not be able to hit a tropical beach but you can enjoy some summer flavors at home.

Our tropical protein smoothies start with kale and my favorite protein powder, which means they don’t turn into a delightfully tropical fruit color (yellows, pinks, and oranges) but you’ll still get that tropical flavor that transports you to summer days even in winter.
I’m a huge fan of getting something green into our smoothies every time and my favorite way to do this is with kale or some other greens. I find kale doesn’t add a ton of flavor-less than spinach-so we often use it. The trick is blending the kale and coconut milk together first so the kale gets pureed really well first. If you aren’t feeling it with the kale today, give this scrumptious Strawberry Mango Protein Smoothie a try.
Once it’s been pureed, I add protein powder, unsweetened yogurt, and frozen tropical fruit and blend until smooth. I love the tropical fruit blend at ALDI because it’s affordable and has a nice variety of fruit. Measuring is quite simple – 1/2 a bag/2 cups for 2 servings or 1 bag/4 cups for 4 servings.Print
