If you live in a country with easy access to different tropical fruits or if you travel to a place like that, you have to try tropical fruit salad. When you combine different fruits, drizzle them with some lime juice and add a peppermint, you get a pretty fabulous combination.
Raw vegan version utilizes hearts of palm along with cherry tomatoes, mango, spinach and a burst of fresh lime. Serve it up in lettuce leaves or fresh, juicy jicama tortillas for your next taco night.

Savor the best that summer has to offer with this delicious and nutritious green peach smoothie.
This recipe couldn’t be simpler. Natural, healthy, and delicious: there’s no need to complicate things. This Mango Banana Pudding is a great snack or a nutritious dessert or even for breakfast. Pudding! Forget about the stuff that comes in a plastic cup!
You can customize your pudding with vanilla, cinnamon, some berries, or whatever other flavors you like. Adding some chia seeds will make it a bit thicker, too.
Chia seeds are absolutely amazing. Not only do they make decent pets, they provide a complete range of amino acids (a full protein), are full of fiber, omega-3s, fiber, antioxidants, and a broad spectrum of nutrients. And that’s just the chia seeds! This pudding packs a powerful nutritious punch. It makes a fantastic make-ahead breakfast or afternoon snack.
Everyone deserves a little treat from time to time. What did you do today to earn yourself one? Did finish a project? Did you accomplish a goal? Did you smile at someone or say something nice? Whatever it is that you did, you earned a reward! All you have to do now is make it!
And what you should make is this berry mango chocolate ice cream cookie! Just for you! Though, if you really wanted to, you could probably share it with someone else who also deserves a delicious treat.
Well folks, it’s no secret that it’s been a hot summer. Even the TV weather people are finally starting to seem a little bit less excited by another day of record-setting heat. If you’re looking to stay cool on the outside, then you might as well get cool on the inside!
This Green Glowing Smoothie Bowl is like a delicious fruit salad in ice cream form. But instead of the sugar and junk you might find in that regular old ice cream we all remember from our younger days, you’ve got basil leaves, kale, and a plethora of lovely fruits!
It’s like nice cream, but it’s a smoothie bowl. A smoothie in a bowl. Come on!
Don’t be fooled by the name of this smoothie! Mango and peach might be the two central ingredients, but there’s a lot more going on here than just those two wonderful fruits! We’ve got bananas, we’ve got celery, we’ve got chia and coconut water. We’ve even got some turmeric.
And that’s just for the base layer! Some of the really fun stuff comes in on the next layer. Here we’ve got our spirulina, our hemp seeds, and of course, our matcha powder. All these high-energy, protein and nutrient rich foods make this an excellent smoothie to enjoy after a good workout.
Of course, you should feel free to throw on any extras you might want. Blueberries and pomegranates make for a fine topping!
Yellow is considered the color of optimism and pleasure. And you’ll have plenty to feel optimistic about once you’ve harnessed the power of this pleasantly yellow smoothie!
Turmeric is a fantastic spice. It’s actually a close relative of ginger, which also shows up in this smoothie. Like ginger, turmeric is a wonderful anti-inflammatory food that has been valued for its healing properties since time immemorial. And mango — well, what needs to be said about this lovely squishy fruit? There’s hardly a fruit in the world more suited for smoothie magic.
A little bit of coconut flakes add a little bit more of that special yumminess only coconut can bring. Another smoothie for the hall of fame. And that bit of ginger with the mango — manifique!
Green smoothies are awesome. All the goodness of fruit plus the nutrient density of dark greens! This tropical green smoothie’s got a bit of a twist, with a healthy dose of cilantro adding a bit of a spicy kick to the mix.
Not everyone likes cilantro. This is an unfortunate and curious biological fact. Other people seem like they can’t get enough of it. But don’t worry, if cilantro isn’t you thing, this smoothie still rocks without it. You could substitute a little bit of jalapeno if you want a slightly different take on a spicy tropical green smoothie.
This is a particularly awesome breakfast smoothie. Super nutritious way to start your day, plus the invigorating aroma of cilantro!
