Protein Packed Tropical Green Smoothie

Print

Go back to those bright summer days with this Tropical Green Smoothie! Its vibrant colors and refreshing look go perfectly with its refreshing, light taste. A mix of antioxidant-rich tropical fruits like mangos, oranges and pineapples with heart-healthy avocado is not just irresistible but also extremely powerful. Collagen protein powder is ideal for post-workout nutrition due to its high amino acid content that supports the body’s protein needs during and after exercise. Further Food Collagen contains 18 amino acids and 8 of the 9 essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body and must be consumed through dietary proteins.
This smoothie also has a natural sweetness filled with fiber, keeping your digestive system going and your immune system strong. And as we always say, a colorful plate is a healthy plate!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

I'm a sucker for any recipe with only a few ingredients! And as an added bonus there is no added sugar here! The good fat from the avocado protects your heart, and the lauric acid in the coconut is antibacterial and antimicrobial, which may prevent you from getting sick! This smoothie won't bother your belly if you can’t tolerate lactose, and it will keep you full thanks to all that fat and fiber! Drink up!

Helping you eat better, feel better, naturally.

Founder's story:

"My father had just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my mom was
managing her hypothyroid, and my best friend was struggling with painful IBS.
I went online to search for food-based and natural solutions that could help
them heal. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and left me more confused. I thought, ‘There must be an easier way to discover solutions for various ailments from real experts and from people who had done it themselves. So I decided to build a resource—a platform for food as medicine solutions
for all your health needs. And I decided to take the wisdom from this community to create real food based products that heal.

    Made this smoothie, delicious. I took the liberty of adding flax seeds to get a slightly nutty flavor. Thank you for keeping the great recipes coming!
    PS I now use the turmeric and collagen to help my liver and the brain fog that results. You are the best, so glad I found you
