Today has been the warmest day it’s been in a long time. With the temperature up to 6C (43F) it’s basically Norwegian Spring. And Norwegian Spring is basically Norwegian Summer. So, I’ll be sharing a tropical smoothie today to celebrate the approaching lighter days and warmer skins!

 

I love Winter, I really do, the crisp air and the crunchy snow. The cold really bite into your skin and you’re tucked under at least five layers of clothing. The view from my bedroom window is filled with alps covered in snow, the tranquil fjord and it’s just much more crisp than in the Summer months.

However, it’s also impossible to get anything done. It’s cold and you just want to hibernate, my brain has shut off and yeah, I might be in desperate need of sun and warmth. It has seemed so far away the past few weeks and months – but today, today I felt it might come back.

And if it’s not sunny outside, let’s drink sunshine in a cup! Or glass, or whatever you drink your smoothies from. This mango pineapple smoothie is packed with tropical sweet flavors. It’s FRESH, but it’s also sweet. The sweetness depends on the ripeness of your fruit and water/orange juice ratio. I added a hint of mint because hey; added antioxidants and freshness with a cool aftertaste. Exactly what we want in a tropical paradise.

 

Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. You can add more water or orange juice to reach your desired consistency. Remember that different blenders may require different amounts of liquid. You can also add some superfood powders, chia seeds or ground flax seeds if you want to oomph up the nutritional value.

 

Pour into two glasses!

So, imagine sitting on a beach, in your bikini and straw hat, sipping on this tropical mango pineapple smoothie while soaking up the sun and bury your toes in the hot sand.

 

While your mind is set on the Caribbean (or at least mine was), why don’t you do a full Caribbean menu today? I highly recommend this super delicious and exotic Cuban Quinoa Bowl with Mango Salsa and Fried Bananas or this Mango Chipotle Quinoa Bowl with Optional Lime Chicken for dinner.
