What ingredients do you need to make a vegan tropical smoothie?
All dairy free fruit smoothies are pretty simple to make and this dairy free green smoothie is no exception.
If you have a blender, there’s no reason you can get started on making this really simple smoothie right away.
The ingredients that you need to make this vegan smoothie are:
- Banana (Frozen best)
- Coconut Milk
- Agave (or maple syrup)
How do you make a dairy free tropical smoothie?
Inside of a blender, you are going to add all your ingredients.
We love our high powdered Vitamix because of the ability to really blend the ingredients; however our second favorite blender that is well within most people’s price range is this Ninja Professional Kitchen System (watch it for sales, it’s frequently ran for $99).
The most preferred way to add ingredients to a blender in order to preserve the blades is to add liquid, dry, then frozen ingredients on top.
This way, by the time the blades come in contact with frozen ingredients, it has already starting blending a good amount of your vegan smoothie.
Should I use a frozen or fresh banana to make this dairy free smoothie?
Honestly, either a fresh or frozen banana will work in this vegan smoothie.
Most people prefer to drink cold smoothies, and because of that will typically add ice.
Ice, however, is just frozen water, so by adding ice, it has a tendency to dilute the flavor profile of this vegan green smoothie.
One way to combat diluting it, is to add a frozen banana. This way your smoothie still gets cold, but without essentially adding water to it.
