This refreshing tropical collagen smoothie is milk-free/lactose-free and has no added sugar. A scoop of collagen powder gives it a quick protein boost. It's dairy-free, AIP, Paleo, and Whole30 compliant. Make it vegan by leaving out the collagen powder.
Optional- Add 1 additional banana for a sweeter smoothie
*For best results, at least one of the fruit components of the smoothie should be frozen. Two is better though. Otherwise, you can compensate with some ice. Just keep in mind, it will water down the flavor slightly as you add more ice.
There is No Liquid in This Recipebecause the watermelon has so much liquid in it, it’s not necessary. It’s just not needed.
Use Ice if Not Using Frozen Bananas and/or Pineapple- To achieve a thicker smoothie, the recipe calls for frozen banana slices. If you just want to use a regular banana, you can do this too but may want to add a half cup of ice if it’s not “frosty” enough.
Thin it Out With Liquid If Needed- If the smoothie ends up thicker than you would like, just add a little bit of liquid to it. This can be water, coconut water, coconut milk (or any other milk)
Put Non-Frozen Fruit Near the Blender Blades- Put the non-frozen fruit (the watermelon and maybe a banana if not frozen) closest to the blender blades for easier blending.
