Tropical Fruit Smoothies for Two

This post was created in partnership with Dole. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

When the sun is shining and it’s a scorcher of day here in Texas, I love cooling off with a nice, cold smoothie. Years ago I would purchase smoothies from a local smoothie bar, but once I learned how many calories were in a smoothie I thought was healthy for me, I decided to make my own and have been doing it that way ever since.

I recently partnered with Dole to create a recipe using one of their frozen fruit products. Since I’m such a fan of homemade smoothies, I decided to make a Tropical Fruit Smoothie.

This recipe is super simple because I used cut, frozen fruit. It didn’t require much effort or time, which as a busy mom of three and business owner, I’m incredibly thankful for.

My children have been on a pineapple kick here lately so I wanted to make them a smoothie that included pineapples. I picked up a bag of Dole Tropical Medley Frozen Fruit. It includes mango, strawberries and pineapple and it’s the perfect base for a tropical fruit smoothie.

Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 2 cups Dole Tropical Fruit Medley
  • ¼ cup lowfat vanilla yogurt
  • juice of one orange (about ¼ cup)
  • ¾ cup almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until well combined. Pour in cup, insert straw, and enjoy!

The recipe, if you can even call it a recipe, is easy-peasy! And the fun part is, you can customize it anyway you want it. By using DOLE Frozen Fruit, I saved myself a ton of time by not having to cut the fruit myself.

When my boys got home from school, they helped me with the preparation. Because it’s so easy, I didn’t mind them getting involved and being a part of something fun in the kitchen. I think their favorite part was squeezing the oranges for the juice.

    I like Strawberry Banana ones :) I’m starting to experiment with grains in my smoothies – oatmeal, chia – it’s been interesting.

    Love their smoothies, they are so easy to make and just as flavorful as the ones you would make by hand yourself.

    This sounds so refreshing and yummy! I will definitely try it. AND, I love that you used a fresh orange instead of orange juice. :)

    Except for the almond milk, sounds like how we’ve made our smoothies. I like blueberry or strawberry or strawberry-banana. Yum!
