Tropical Vegan Smoothie from @KatrinasKitchen

I was recently contacted after being listed on’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 the 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!
