Tropical fever hit our house this week because warm weather came in a few days in a row.
However, when the chilly spring air returned today, I would not be deterred.
I put up the heat, slipped into flip flops, and proceeded to make these mango marmalade smoothies! My husband was giving me side-eye like crazy, haha!
They tasted like an explosion of tropical fruitiness and crunch, and made me feel like it was truly vacation time!
The smoothie has many layers, the top being the star of this post, Bob’s Red Mill’s Tropical Muesli!
It’s actually a muesli that comes in a single-serve-size instant cardboard cup so it can be prepared cold as an overnight oats meal, or hot in a microwave. And it is a terrific mix of fruit and crunch.
Rolled oats – which are in abundance in this muesli – in general are terrifically nutritious, with healthy soluble fiber, antioxidants, loads of vitamins and minerals including B1 and B5, as well as potassium and calcium.
And this tropical muesli specifically has all that nutrition and more because it is a blend of gluten free whole grain oats, tropical fruits such as coconut flakes, nuts including almonds, and seeds including pumpkin seeds.
I combined it ingeniously (haha) with my new tropical smoothie, Mango Marmalade !
Such a flavorful party in the mouth! A 3-fruit-combo, can you guess them?
And topped with a citrus-y coconut yogurt.
And all that topped with the fruity, nutty, crunchy muesli!
I really really think this smoothie is among my favorite top five flavors!
And I am a firm believer that if you love your morning smoothie, you will have a great day! Quote by me.
Let’s move on to this recipe!
Mango Marmalade Smoothie with Tropical Muesli
- 1 cup chopped mango
- 1/4 cup sliced carrots
- 1/4 cup pinapple
- 1 cup plant yogurt (I used coconut)
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp baobab powder A superfood that boosts vitamin C levels
- 1 canister of Bob's Red Mill's Tropical Muesli
- 3 tbsp coconut flakes
- 3 tbsp chopped raspberries
- 2 tbsp chopped pineapple
Make the Marmalade Smoothie
Blend up the mango, carrots and pineapple until mixed but lumpy. Add some water but not enough to make it pourable; you want it spoonable. Stir in lemon juice.
Make the Citrus Yogurt
- Blend up yogurt, lemon juice, and baobab.
Make the Museli
Open the canister, peel off the top and (optional) stir in the extra ingredients.
- You can choose to top your smoothie with the muesli dry or you can prepare it as cold oatmeal or even overnight oatmeal (if you prepare it the night before) by following package instructions.
Build the Mango Marmalade
- Spoon the smoothie into a jar, top with a layer of citrus yogurt and then the tropical muesli! Enjoy chilled!
