Tropical Vegan Smoothie and a Giveaway
I was recently contacted after being listed on Babble.com’s Readers’ Choice Top 100 Mommy Food Bloggers to be a blog tour stop for a new cookbook, Vegan Family Meals. I was given a complimentary copy of Ann Gentry’s new cookbook and have enjoyed reading every bit of it.
And I’m pleased to tell you that I have a copy for one lucky reader! While my family is not vegan, as a mom I am always striving to offer my family healthy, wholesome, and flavorful meals. This book is filled with beautiful pictures and easy recipes that your family will love. As Ann says in her introduction to the book,
“It’s not necessary to become vegan or vegetarian to enjoy the benefits of eating plant-based meals.”
The first thing I made when I opened my copy was Ann’s Tropical Smoothie. I had frozen papayas and mango chunks in the freezer so I knew it was a perfect choice. I was not disappointed. I am listing the recipe as it is in Vegan Family Meals but I did make one change. My grocery store does not carry coconut water so I substituted Silk PureCoconut milk. I love coconut milk and at only 80 calories per serving, it is a guilt-free treat!
Tropical Vegan Smoothie Recipe
- 1 11.2 oz container coconut water
- 1 ripe banana, peeled
- 1 C frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 C frozen papaya chunks
- ½ C frozen mango chunks
- 3 T soaked almonds
- Blend all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serve immediately.

I missed this post, but just stumbled across it, and I'm loving everything about it! We are in full smoothie mode, this one is ideal for Liv's busy dance days. Thanks!
My hubby and I have contemplated going vegan lately. That smoothie would be awesome with some rum – just saying! Great pictures as usual 🙂
You pictures are beautiful! Sounds delicious : )
My wife uses cocconut milk alot in her baking, and makes the BEST tapioca with it. Now we have to try some of these smoothies too. They look so delicious !
Love the smoothie recipe! Ann Gentry's new cookbook looks amazing…can't wait to try the recipes! Pace e bene
What a great giveaway! We tend to get stuck in a rut with the same meals over and over (not that I don't love baked falafel or hummus pizza!), so I am on the lookout for good recipes!
This smoothie sounds fantastic!
I cook a lot with coconut but mostly main dishes and not smoothies. I love the creaminess of coconut milk and the refreshing flavor of coconut juice.
I love eating vegan occasionally. I would LOVE a copy of the cookbook!
I'm trying this! Thanks for posting.
I hope I win!
Great idea and nice giveaway Katrina..coconut water is so nutritional and refreshing! Pick me up drink:))
