Folks, this 4-ingredient tropical banana smoothie is just what you need for a quick boost of vitamins and minerals right at the start of the day!

In fact, I’m even going to go as far as to claim that as you sip down this tasty creamy sweet banana smoothie you could be mistaken for thinking you’re in the tropics!
This simple banana smoothie was devised by me taking my original and equally easy popular Banana Boost Smoothie and adding the pineapple as a tropical twist.
It’s recipes like this tropical banana smoothie that I’m hoping I can find in some of the places we’re staying on our hike of the West Highland Way next week for breakfast. To give us all the energy and boost that we need on a daily basis to help us complete its 96 miles!
Normally the popular route is from South to North, finishing at Fort William but I’m not normal so we’re doing it our way. 🙂
Actually, North to South is the way I did it previously with Mike (that’s him in this Geal Charn And A’Mharconaich post) 6 years ago and it was great passing everybody on their way up as it was less busy!
Now, I’m not sure if those places on the West Highland Way that we stay at will have a Optimum VAC2 Air Vacuum Blender (they should!).
You see that’s what I made this tropical banana smoothie with and I really cannot be without this valuable piece of kitchen equipment now. It’s my blender for life, and could be yours too!
Remember if you use a Optimum VAC2 Air Vacuum Blender you’ve the added benefit of your smoothie staying fresher for longer!
The blender has revolutionary vacuum technology which eliminates the oxidation process by drawing the air (oxygen), which can lead to the destruction of nutrients in food, out of the blending jug so you can enjoy maximum benefits.Start your day with this 4-ingredient tropical banana smoothie which takes just 5 minutes to make!Click To Tweet
