Tropical Smoothie

  • Author: carolinefey
  • Prep Time: 15 min
  • Total Time: 15 minutes


Made with classic ingredients like pineapple, mango, banana, and coconut, but it also has a secret ingredient: frozen cauliflower. The frozen cauliflower, it helps to balance out the sweet fruit, plus it adds vitamins c, k and b6, and it helps to give the smoothie its frozen texture. Don’t skip the vanilla and nutmeg, they really add extra tropical notes too.


Units Scale
  • 2 cups diced pineapple (frozen would work too)
  • 2 cups frozen mango (fresh would work too)
  • 1/2 cup coconut yogurt – I love Cocojune brand
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower rice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste, vanilla extract, or vanilla bean seeds
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • A generous pinch of grated nutmeg, plus more for sprinkling on top (optional)


Put all ingredients into a blender and process until smooth. Drink right away or save for later. The smoothie will last for 1 to 2 days in your fridge.


This smoothie would be amazing with rum or tequila, so make a double batch this weekend.
