Club Tropicana Smoothie

Like most of you, I've got my go-to smoothie that never fails to deliver. But I'm also a creative and food is my medium! So I experimented with a vague memory of an Orange Julius and came up with this smoothie that includes orange AND pineapple or mango! Not to mention a totally bizarre sounding veggie in there. TRUST ME. Bonus points if you're old enough to know what the name is referencing 😜
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple or mango chunks
  • 1 whole orange, peeled (you can also zest that orange before peeling it and add that if you love orange)
  • 3/4 cup riced cauliflower (frozen or raw)
  • 2 dates (seed removed)
  • 1 scoop unflavored protein powder
  • 1 Tbsp flax seeds (optional)
  • Splash of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of coconut milk, almond milk or macadamia nut milk


Blend to desired consistency. Add more milk if it’s too thick!
