I decided to try a new smoothie with some orange in it (not orange juice, too much sugar and no fiber)so that I could get some vitamin c. So I looked in my freezer to see what else I could put in it. I found strawberries, blueberries, pineapples, peaches, and mangoes. I went with a tropical theme and left out the berries since I put those in my smoothies on a daily basis. Tropical, you ask? I suppose I’m just wishing I was on a beach.
I also always put turmeric in my smoothies because of its anti-inflammatory properties since I’m constantly in a state of inflammation due to Endometriosis. I still put turmeric in my tropical smoothie because it’s what I do on a daily basis. I also added a dash of black pepper (don’t worry it doesn’t affect the taste) because it helps the body to absorb the turmeric.
This smoothie would also be delicious with peanut butter added in because isn’t every smoothie with peanut butter in it delicious?
Also, I’m not entirely sure if peaches are tropical. I don’t actually think they are.
Anyway, if you make this smoothie, let me know what you think by commenting below, sharing on Facebook, tagging @theplantedkitchen on Instagram, or using the hashtag #theplantedkitchen.
