How good do warm rays on a beach sound right now?! Though the weather here in Minnesota isn’t quite tropical, it’s definitely getting warmer and I will gladly settle for a tropical smoothie that at least reminds me of palm trees and sunshine. There is nothing quite like sipping on the taste of pineapple, mango and citrus during a mid-day slump, especially when the smoothie includes the Nature’s Way® Energy Powder, because we could all use a little more energy at times 😉
With all the tasty fruits in this smoothie, this would be a wonderful pre-workout snack that is a little lighter on the stomach, but packed with nourishing, whole-food carbohydrates to give your body a healthy fuel source during activity! I get questions about good pre-workout snacks from clients all the time and love recommending smoothies as an easy option. Whip up it up before your morning workout and sip it on your way to the gym. It also works well to freeze it overnight and let it thaw in the fridge the next day at work, so you can grab it as you head to your 6pm workout class, straight from the office!
As much as I love all the tropical fruits in this smoothie, my favorite part about it is actually the Nature’s Way® Energy Powder that works so perfectly with this flavor profile. This herbal powder is made with the adaptogenic herb, rhodiola, cranberry fruit, maca root and more!
Now that I have you dreaming of warm places and salivating over a tropical smoothie, let’s pull out those blenders and whip this up! Then sit back, kick your feet up, sip and pretend you are laying on a sandy beach!
Seeking the perfect morning or mid-day boost? This smoothie will take your taste buds to the tropical islands and your body will be left nourished!
