Tropical Fruit Smoothie with a Secret Ingredient

Confession time y’all. I’ve been battling myself when it comes to eating healthy this summer. It’s summer and I have a thing for cool sweet treats in the heat. Ice cream is a favorite but I really need to watch how often I let that happen. I turned forty just a few weeks ago and the weight doesn’t come off as easy as it did in the past. When the most recent challenge from Barleans came about, I knew it was just the thing I needed! Creating a cool, healthy summer treat using one of the products they sent sounded like something I’d love. Did they say “summer treat”?! No problem! One of the products they sent is their Omega Swirl Pina Colada! If you’ve not tried their Omega Swirls, you are missing out! Get some and make this smoothie ASAP!

This post was done in partnership with Barleans. All opinions are 100% my own.

The Omega Swirls from Barleans are (in my opinion) the best way to get your fish oil supplements! It’s like fish oil turned into dessert! Details from their site: “Barlean’s Swirl supplements are emulsified utilizing a proprietary technology that turns standard fish oil, flax oil and a variety of other essential nutrients into sweet, delicious smoothie-like supplements that taste incredible.

Tropical Fruit Smoothie

The kids love smoothies and I find it’s the easiest way to get servings of fruits and veggies not only into them, but into my husband and I. When I created this tropical fruit smoothie earlier this week it was love! It’s super easy to make and full of goodness! It’s that sweet treat I love but without all of the bad stuff!

My secret ingredient is the Omega Swirl from Barleans. It’s great for you and can be taken straight from the spoon and still taste great. It can also be added to smoothies or other favorite foods.

I used honey and unsweeted coconut flakes to garnish the rim of the glass. It made for a pretty summer cool treat!
