For a thicker smoothie, use frozen mango as well as pineapple.

1 cup water
Fruit of 1 large mango
8 – 10 frozen pineapple chunks
Large handful baby spinach
1 tbsp organic coconut oil

Blend on high speed for 45 to 50 seconds (“Whole Juice” button on a Blendtec).

  1. On a lot of the recipes, it does not say if it is for one or two servings….with the tropical green smoothie would you be able to say if it is one or two servings? Thanks!

      Gail, good question. Serving sizes always depend on the individual, of course. Based on the ingredients in this recipe, though, I would most-likely consider this to be two servings.

  2. Hi BD,

    Thank you for your reply on my dilemma with TNC and Pro 200 as well as Pro 300 (on the other page).

    I was looking through the recipe tab and I saw this recipe. May I ask what does the organic coconut oil do in the smoothie? Apart from health benefit, is it for taste or texture? I’ve never known coconut oil used in a smoothie before.

    I’m going to try this recipe once I get my blender 🙂

    Thank you,
    Maple

      Maple, apart from any health benefits I will use it for any tropical-style smoothie as a flavor enhancer. This is only the organic, cold-pressed, unrefined oil. This is the one with the most coconut flavor. Unrefined oils are more neutral in taste but also are devoid of many of the related health benefits, too.
