Tropical Orange Smoothie Bowl

This Tropical Orange Smoothie Bowl is a colorful way to enjoy summer fruits. Made mostly of fruit, it's incredibly thick and spoonable.

If I had to pick a favorite food color the yellow-orange family would be my first choice.

There are so many of my favorite foods in those colors: sweet potatoes, bananas, carrots, oats, and more! I could probably eat only yellow-orange foods for the rest of my life and be perfectly content.

That said, I don't advise that. There is great benefit in eating a variety of whole plant foods. And it's a great idea to try to eat all colors of the rainbow.

For example, I probably have a dip in every single color...

Bottom line: it's SO fun and SO good for you to eat all the colors. You'll get a variety of antioxidants and nutrients which will help your body function optimally.

We're not talking about dips today though. We're talking smoothies!

Tropical Orange Smoothie Bowl

This Tropical Orange Smoothie Bowl makes me think of the beach. I love all the fruity flavors in this bowl. Plus, if you top the bowl with coconut like I did, it adds even more tropical vibes.

All you need to make this bowl are a few simple ingredients. It's mostly fruit with just a couple other things added in for optimal flavor and a perfect texture.

Ingredients

  • Frozen Pineapple, Mango, and Papaya: Yay for tropical fruits! I found a bag of these fruits all mixed together. But if you have them separately that works too!
  • Frozen Banana: I will preach forever that it is essential to always have frozen bananas. You can seriously use them for everything. And it's nice to not have to worry about missing an ingredient.
  • Grated Carrots: For some extra orange color and good-for-you nutrients!
  • Fresh Chopped Ginger: I loved adding a hint of ginger to this smoothie - not only does it fit with the yellow-orange theme, but it adds a hint of spice.
  • Ground Turmeric: This is optional, but turmeric adds orange color and TONS of cancer-fighting properties.
  • Dash Pepper: Also optional, but if you're adding the turmeric, add the pepper to help with nutrient absorption.
  • Non-Dairy Milk: I think coconut milk would taste particularly delicious in this smoothie, but I used almond milk in the recipe and it was great!

How to make a Tropical Orange Smoothie Bowl

Smoothies are pretty simple! Start by adding all the ingredients to a food processor. Blend them until they are completely smooth. If you want a drinkable smoothie, add additional milk to thin.

Pour into a bowl and top with desired toppings such as chia seeds, shredded coconut, carrots, or fruit. Enjoy!

Recipe Prayer

Praise Jesus for bright foods that are beautiful, delicious, and healthy. Amen.

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
