Tropical Tangerine and Ginger Smoothie

Smoothies are delicious any time but when it’s burning hot outside, sipping on an ice cold smoothie is like a vacation getaway in a glass.

It’s practically a requirement to kick off your shoes and put your feet up while enjoying a smoothie on a hot day.

Here’s a quick and easy recipe for a tropical “vacation getaway in a glass”.

This smoothie not only comes with tropical fruit (mango, banana and coconut milk), but also citrus (tangerine and a splash of lime).

And for a light and spicy flavor boost, just a bit of fresh grated ginger root is added.

It’s really good and so refreshing.

Thank you very much for stopping by.

Let’s take a look at all of the ingredients needed, and how to make it.

Yellow mango, tangerine, banana, coconut milk, ginger root, lime, crushed ice and honey.

Here’s how to make it.

In a blender…

…add coconut milk, tangerine segments,

lime juice…

…and…

…crushed ice.

Next add a banana…

…and…

.

…mango.

Next,

and honey.

Then,

Serve right away and…

…garnish (optional) each serving with a slice of banana, small piece of mango, and half of a segment of tangerine.

Then kick off your shoes, put your feet up and…

…enjoy each and every sip.

And maybe even have seconds.

Or even thirds.
