The Right Smoothie Mix will Deliver an Island Oasis in your Cup!

Tropical Island Oasis Smoothie Mix


Smoothies are a terrific option for people on the go who want a nutrient-rich drink that is convenient and delicious. They are versatile, letting you adapt the drink to your own personal taste while incorporating what you have on hand in your refrigerator. One of our favorite smoothie recipes is for a Tropical Island Oasis Smoothie mixed with a variety of fruits and other healthy goodies.



Start with a Good Fruit Concentrate


There are a wide choices of fruit juices, concentrates and mixes available on the market. However, consumers should take a close look at labels before buying. Avoid products with unhealthy ingredients such as added sugar, high-fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, preservatives and flavorings. 100% whole fruits are beautifully delicious just as nature intended them to be. For the Island Oasis Smoothie recipe, look for a high-quality tropical fruit blend.


An excellent choice is part of the line of Smartfruit all-fruit concentrates. Smartfruit is a company based out of New York that prides themselves on an all natural and healthy product. Their  Tropical Harmony blend is chock-full of papaya, guava, passion fruit, pineapple and pears. The drink is enhanced with the addition of Aloe Vera, to help with digestion and hydration while also boosting the immune system.



Tropical Island Oasis Smoothie Recipe


Into a blender put:

  • four ounces of tropical fruit concentrate, preferably Smartfruit Tropical Harmony blend
  • one ripe banana
  • one ripe mango
  • half a cup of low-fat plain yogurt
  • unsweetened vanilla almond milk to the required consistency: start with ¾ of a cup and add more if needed


Blend until smooth and creamy.


More Smoothie Recipe Ideas


Making a smoothie can be as easy as adding crushed ice to a fruit concentrate and blending. However, as more and more people are making smoothies as a quick meal option, it’s important to pack in as much of those all important nutrients as possible. Combining whole fruits with 100% natural fruit concentrates is a good place to start. Whole fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas and mangoes are terrific in smoothies. To reach the required consistency add milk, almond milk, coconut water or yogurt before blending. For extra protein, a tablespoon or two of almond or peanut butter is a nice extra. As vegetables are an important part of our daily diet, adding a handful of kale, chard, spinach or broccoli sprouts add a powerful nutritional boost. Including chopped cucumber or mint increases a smoothie’s refreshing taste. A ripe avocado adds creamy goodness. For extra omega-3 fatty acids, try stirring in hemp, flax or chia seeds. 


Once you’ve tried the Tropical Harmony blend in this Island Oasis Smoothie Mix recipe, you may want to try some of the other fruit concentrates made by Smartfruit. Each 100% fruit blend has an extra healthy boost of goodness that enhances the immune system, energy levels and fiber intake. Several are spiked with super fruits like goji or açai berries that increase important antioxidants. Their website offers their own recipes for smoothies, deserts, cocktails, coolers and fruit bowls.
