Tropical Sunrise Smoothie

Updated: Aug 5

What better way to start your kids' day than with a good dose of healthy fat for their brains and nutrient-rich veggies and fruit to build up their bodies? My kids and husband really like this smoothie. I make the amount below, then divide it evenly between 8 or 9 jam jars so I can pull a new jar out for my kids each morning.

Tropical Sunrise Smoothie

(makes 64 ounces)


  • ⅓ - ½ head of cauliflower, chopped

  • 2 bananas

  • ⅓ cup raw pumpkin seeds*

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk

  • Juice of ½ a lemon

  • Enough frozen mango and pineapple to fill the remainder of the blender

  • Add water for desired consistency


  1. Place all ingredients in a high-powered blender. (We love our Vitamix!)

  2. Blend well and enjoy!


* Don’t skip the pumpkin seeds!

“Pumpkin seeds are highly nutritious and packed with powerful antioxidants. Eating them can help solve dietary deficiencies and may protect against various health problems. In fact, pumpkin seeds have been shown to improve heart health, blood sugar levels, fertility, and sleep quality. They may even protect against certain types of cancer. In addition, their rich nutrient content may provide other health benefits, such as improved energy, mood and immune function.” (source)
