Live on Green Tropical Smoothie

This delicious #DoleRose Live on Green Tropical Smoothie—packed with mango, spinach, pineapple and more—is a delicious way to kick off a healthy new year.

I'm truly excited to be a part of a Food Blogger Blast led by the fabulous Ally Philips of Ally's Kitchen. Ally is a Dole California Cook-Off Champion, so she knows delicious food! She's going to feature this green smoothie—as well as several other recipes—at the Dole Bistro when she does live cooking demonstrations as part of the Tournament of Roses Parade celebration.

This tropical smoothie was created in honor of Dole Packaged Foods' Live on Green event, which will take place December 29-31 in Pasadena. People from around the world will explore 100,000 square feet of free entertainment and fun activities. They'll also indulge in healthy snacks and beverages—like this Live on Green Tropical Smoothie—at the Dole Bistro. 

Can't make it to Pasadena this week? No problem. I've got DOLE's Live on Green Tropical Smoothie recipe right here for you, so you can enjoy this tasty green smoothie anytime! 

  • 4 cups DOLE® Baby Spinach  
  • 3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
  • 1/2 cup DOLE® pineapple juice
  • 1 cup DOLE® frozen mango chunks
  • 1 DOLE® banana

Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor. Blend until thick and smooth. Enjoy!

I should note that I slightly adapted the recipe to suit my personal preferences: I substituted coconut milk for the soy, and I used
DOLE® frozen pineapple chunks instead of a banana (I'm not a banana fan). If you follow us on Instagram, you know that this smoothie really brightened my day!


And on January 1, make sure to check out Dole Packaged Food’s rainforest-themed float at the Tournament of Roses Parade. The Soaring Over Paradise float includes four waterfalls, a zip line that travels through the rainforest canopy, and a flock of Macaws that appear to take flight over the floral gardens. Wish I could be there in person—don't you?
