Tropical Avocado Smoothie
Want the flavor of the tropics in your smoothie? Well this Tropical Avocado Smoothie has it! Loaded with pineapple, mango…and your greens…this smoothie will definitely start your day off on the right foot. Or help you recover after a good workout, or be a filling lunch. Let’s be honest, smoothies are good anytime of the day because they are an easy way to give your body the nutrients that it craves.
I love pineapple because it is sweet, but it also helps with inflammation. Which is great is you have any aches and pains. Did you know that mangoes are really high in vitamin C, low in calories, and a great source of vitamin A and B? Plus, they taste great, so they are a great addition to your smoothies.

I almost always add carrots, cucumbers and greens to all my smoothies. It is important to have fruits and vegetables in your smoothies! While blending all your favorite fruits together sounds delicious, it will also give you a large dose of sugar, you have to balance that out with vegetables! Carrots, cucumbers and greens really don’t change the flavor profile of your smoothie at all, but give you a nice serving of veggies.
Carrots – The orange powerfood will give you vitamin A and is also linked to preventing cancer, giving you healthier looking skin and aids in digestion.
Cucumbers – These are great for rehydration. Cucumbers are also a great source of vitamin B, so that means they are a natural pick-me-up.
Avocados – Besides being loaded with the “good fat”, they help heart health, lower cholesterol and lower triglycerides. Plus, they make your smoothie extra creamy 🙂
Cinnamon helps gives you a metabolism boost, turmeric is good for inflammation, and chia seeds are nutritional powerhouses. So, all three are great additions to your daily smoothies.
