We wanted to share this vegan tropical smoothie recipe, from our free Green Smoothie Challenge. This refreshing green smoothie tastes like sunshine and fresh air, and has incredible health benefits.

Health Benefits in our Tropical Green Smoothie

Basically, this smoothie is Queen ‘C’ in promoting health and wellness. It gives us an extra immunity boost this season, especially as Spring brings busy schedules and increasingly hectic days while the weather warms up. We encourage you to sip this tropical, vegan creation and do some deep breathing exercises, or maybe while spending time out in nature (anyone live near the beach?!).

While this vegan smoothie is a sweet treat, it is also an immunity-boosting, health machine with these additional health benefits…

Vitamin C

This smoothie contains over 100% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin C. This is an antioxidant that fights free radicals, which cause all kinds of chronic conditions. The CDC states 45% of adults in the US have hypertension, which can put us at risk for stroke or heart disease.

Potassium

This electrolyte lowers blood pressure, boosts energy, and fights fatigue. It also assists the body with digestion. Studies by the National Institute of Health show that daily consumption of potassium can improve bone health.

Vitamin B6

Our bodies need this vitamin to help metabolize protein, carbs, and fat. It also helps regulate our mood (read: happiness levels!), to help combat depression. The National Library of Medicine shows B6 may also aid in combating Alzheimer’s disease.

Folate

Folate is vital in mood regulation as well, so it is used to combat depression. It also aids in heart health. Pregnant women are encouraged to up their intake of folate to assist in fetal brain development. This vegan tropical smoothie will take that baby’s brain to genius level.

What’s in a Vegan Tropical Smoothie?

How do we get all the great health benefits into one smoothie? Let’s check out the rawkstar ingredient list:

  • Bananas: Rich in antioxidants that can fight cancer and aging. 
  • Spinach: Can help oxygenate the blood, as well as promote skin, eye, and bone health.
  • Oranges: Helps lower blood pressure, as well as helps our skin glow.
  • Pineapple: Immune system boosting, promotes a healthy metabolism.

Is there dairy in tropical smoothies?

In our smoothie recipe, there is no dairy. We actually avoid all dairy in our smoothie recipes because it’s one of the most common food sensitivities. It can cause eczema, acne and other skin conditions, as well as digestive issues.

    Simple Green Smoothies!
    You bless us with compassion and community!

  4. Stacia Wilson says:

    The flavor was good but it was a bit frothy. I may have added to much water though. I probably had closer to a cup rather than 3/4 cups. It had a very refreshing flavor.

  5. Fiona Gough says:

    Another great smoothie.

  6. Erin says:

    This smoothie is always a winner! Love the fruity flavor and the feeling of being on a beach.

  7. Shelley Anne says:

    Smells really delicious and fruity. But taste wise was just okay for me. Might be because I did not have orange so used a peach. And did not have spinach so I used lettuce.

  8. Cynthia says:

    This is definitely one of my favorites! Love the citrusy smoothness.

  9. Meagan says:

    Yummy yummy…I used coconut milk instead + added zucchini, coconut flakes, vanilla & lime & subbed mango for pineapple. The pineapple would have been so yum though.

  10. Grace says:

    Today I used mostly frozen ingredients and added avocado, cilantro and ginger. This smoothie was cold and creamy!

  11. Sherri Lyness says:

    You had me a Tropical! My favorite smoothie so far.

  12. CristinaRibeiro says:

    Tropically refreshing!

  13. Michelle says:

    I add to sub the pineapple for strawberries because that’s what had. But It was still really good

  14. Susan says:

    Love this tropical drink!

  15. Tim says:

    I thought the touch of orange zest along with a pinch of cinnamon was good. Always like pineapple in a smoothie. Tasted really good.

  16. Jessica says:

    I love green smoothies with tropical fruits! Today I added maca powder and chia gel made with pineapple juice. I also added a pinch of cinnamon because I read somewhere that cinnamon tastes good with pineapple. I didn’t love it with the cinnamon but my husband did. Overall though, I love this smoothie/combo of fruits.

  17. Sher says:

    Vegan Tropical –
    I absolutely love this – it is so yummy. so far this and ther first one Peach Banana are my favorites.
    I plan on making the spiced almond milk tonight and strawberry chia pudding – stay tuned for comment

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hey Sher! I love this one, also! And def let us know what you think of the spiced almond milk and chia pudding. 🙂

  18. Jean says:

    I Boosted this for a meal replacement. I added oats, almond butter, and plant based protein powder. Replaced pineapple with orange. This actually tasted quite good!

  19. Laura Young says:

    Tasty and super simple!

  20. Lelian Ocampo says:

    Wow this smoothie made me happy. It is like it jump started my morning! Idk if it has to do with the oranges but man, it made me feel good and awake!

  21. Dora Suarez says:

    I am just loving this spring 10day challenge, so far every recipe has been 5 stars, seriously. For today’s recipe, Vegan Tropical, I was actually out of spinach and kale, but I remember that I had leftover smoothie cubes from the Key Lime pops so threw that in to the blend and what a delight it was. I feel like I should be sipping my smoothie by the beach. Tip for others trying this recipe, I always prep my smoothies in advance, in other words I ration and freeze the fruit, however I don’t freeze my greens or citrus. I’ve learned from previous experience that the citrus is part of the liquid content, thus if I use frozen citrus my smoothies are way to thick and require added liquid. Enjoy, I did.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Dora, I think Key Lime pops as smoothie cubes in this recipe would be amazing! Make it with coconut water and you can say you “put the lime in the coconut” haha! 😉 And thanks for posting the tip on not freezing citrus. I’ve found the same thing and even when I prep my oranges, I keep them in the fridge, not the freezer.

  22. Andrea says:

    Been a while since I used pineapple in my smoothie. Forgot how awesome it is! What a delicious mood boosting smoothie. I used a lot of frozen ingredients and reduced the water to make it into a smoothie bowl and topped it with granola and large flake coconut for extra tropical flare.

  23. Ella says:

    This one is w winner for us.
    So fresh and so full of vitamin C.
    Added – 4 leaves of basil, and a tsp. of chia seeds.
