How would you like to sip on a refreshing smoothie bursting with tropical flavours? You would, wouldn't you... So do we! And that's why we made this guava pineapple and coconut smoothie.
The big star of this recipe is guava, a staple tropical fruit with a delicate and sweet flavour. Are you already a big guava lover? We have another guava smoothie with mango for you to try next.
Guavas come in two variations: white and pink. They are both delicious, rich in antioxidants, and perfect for smoothies, but if you can, we suggest you pick the pink variety. Pink guava is a little juicier, tastes a bit like strawberry, and has a pretty colour. White guava instead tastes more like a ripe pear, and it's sweeter.
Our local tropical store was out of pink guavas, so we opted for the white ones. But this tropical smoothie is so refreshing and satisfying that we could barely tell the difference, so don't worry too much about which variety you use.
We didn't use any bananas in this smoothie, nor any added sugars. If you use ripe fruits, then there's no need for refined sugars. But if your fruits are not mature, then consider adding a splash of maple syrup, or honey.
Overall, this guava smoothie is super easy to make, ready in just about 5 minutes. And it's bursting with fibres and antioxidants, making it a great addition to your breakfast. Enjoy it
