This smoothie is a fun take on a classic cocktail: the Bahama mama!  A Bahama mama is typically made with orange juice, pineapple juice, coconut rum, and grenadine. We’ve given this cocktail a healthy twist by blending fresh fruit and unsweetened coconut flakes.

I added some vanilla protein powder to make this a heartier smoothie as well. This smoothie feels like a vacation in a glass, and is loaded with good-for-you fruits, is high in fiber, and loaded with plant-based protein.

This Bahama Mama Tropical Smoothie Recipe Is:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Fruity
  • Satisfying
  • A Great No-Cook Breakfast or Snack
  • High in Protein & Fiber
  • Vegan, Dairy Free, & Alcohol Free

Make A Bahama Mama Smoothie Dairy Free for a Healthier Version

This dairy free Bahama Mama Smoothie is a fantastic take on the classic without all the dairy. I’m all about making recipes plant-based and dairy free when I can. Dairy-free cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. You can achieve total richness and creaminess with some simple swaps.

By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

What’s In a Bahama Mama Smoothie?

I get all the fresh produce for my recipes from my garden and from Misfits Market – they sell all organic produce at a super discounted price, and it’s purchased direct from the farmers. We get Misfit Market boxes every month and love picking out our favorite seasonal produce for delivery.  You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here! 

If you think organic produce is too expensive… think again, and give Misfits Market a look!

Frozen Fruit Smoothie Recipes For the Win!

I used frozen fruit for this recipe instead of making them from scratch. This is a great way to transform fruit into a bright and healthy breakfast the whole family can enjoy. By using freezer ingredients, I can stock up when they are on sale, and use them in all kinds of great dishes. It saves me a trip to the store, and I can have amazing smoothies in no time.
