It’s Tuesday and that means another smoothie is in the works. Today’s fix is the tropical smoothie. Loaded with tropical fruits and such, it tastes like Hawaii in a glass. I include macadamia nuts in this recipe because they are a great source of fiber and blend really well with these fruit flavors. This is my daughter’s favorite and I always make her one when I pick her up from school. She tends to be hungry and drinks it allll up, making me one happy Mamma because she’s getting a good serving of fruits and veggies. Try this out for your little one!

- 1 cup pineapple, chopped
- 1 cup mango, chopped
