Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie Recipe

Tropical Smoothie Cafe was founded in 1997 in Florida. Ever since then they’ve been serving us delicious breakfast bowls, wraps, vitamin-dense smoothies, and healthy drinks.

But the most refreshing and famous of them all is the Jetty Punch Smoothie. It is a perfect summer drink full of vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and proteins that leave you both refreshed and satisfied.

And it takes only minutes to make.

Today you’ll learn how to prepare the Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie at home, in less than 7 minutes.

How to Make Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie

The Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie is a cool treat and a perfect on-the-go breakfast. It could even replace a complete meal if you add 1 or 2 scoops of protein powder to it.

The best thing about it? All you need for this rich Jetty Punch smoothie is a few ingredients and a blender. Could there be anything simpler?

Ingredients:

(1 serving)

  • 9 frozen strawberries
  • 1 frozen sliced banana
  • 8 tbsp vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1 cup cashew milk
  • 1 cup ice cubes

Instructions:

Bananas and strawberries — preferably frozen — are the basis of this creamy smoothie. They pack this drink with vitamins and fiber. And although it might be quite challenging to blend frozen fruits, the texture and taste will be amazing.

Also, once you add the milk and yogurt, this smoothie will get new refreshing notes of luxurious milky creaminess.

Follow along to learn how to make the Jetty Punch Smoothie that feels like a delicious tropical firework.

Step 1:

Mix the banana, strawberries, cashew milk, and agave syrup and blend on low power for about 2-3 minutes.

To make a creamier smoothie feel free to add more bananas; if you want to reduce the sweetness you can add more strawberries.

Step 2:

Add vanilla yogurt and ice, and blend the mixture on high power for about 3-4 more minutes.

Keep blending until it gets smooth with no chunks left.

Note: using both vanilla yogurt and ice is completely optional, but it complements the overall taste. While the yogurt adds additional creaminess, ice lightens up the drink and makes it easier for your stomach to digest.

Step 3:

Pour your Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie into a glass and enjoy!

Ingredient Substitution

Same as all smoothies, Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie is very adaptable. So, you can play with the ingredients and tweak the recipe to your preference.
As long as you stick to the main ingredients to maintain the original freshness and creaminess of the drink, you’re good to go.
Here are our top suggestions on what to swap up in your Jetty Punch Smoothie, to make it healthier and even more unique.

Oat Milk

Plant-based milk is the best when it comes to smoothies, and the Jetty Punch is not the exception. Oat milk is a great alternative to cashew milk — it’s rich in protein and fiber and higher in calories.

Besides, it offers you a subtle flavor and similar creaminess.

If you run out of both, just use any other plant-based milk, but avoid cocoa and hazelnut. They have overpowering undertones that derail the balance of the flavor in your tropical smoothie.

Milk

If you’re not a fan of plan-based milk or have none at hand, just use regular whole milk instead. However, in this case, go easy on the yogurt since we don’t want the smoothie to be too creamy.

Honey

Honey is one of the most common ingredients all over the world, so you can easily substitute agave syrup with this natural sweetener.

The substitution ratio here is 1:1: since our recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of agave syrup, just use 2 tablespoons of honey instead. But keep in mind that honey is thicker than agave.

Note: if you add honey, the Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie won’t be vegan anymore. If you want to stick with a vegan drink, you can try to add maple syrup instead of the agave.

Chia seeds

Since Greek yogurt or any other diary-based yogurt is a big no-no in the vegan Jetty Punch Smoothie, consider using chia seeds as an alternative. They are a great thickener, stuffed with omega-3, giving your smoothie a mellow and nutty flavor.

Just mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 8 tablespoons of water for around 15 minutes till it gets gelatinous.

What to Serve with Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie

Though the smoothies taste perfectly fine on their own, you can easily make your meal more fulfilling by serving smoothies with some snacks or small meals.

Here’s our top choice of Jelly Punch Smoothie pairings which could go as a side dish or even be added directly to the smoothie.

Intrigued?

Egg Bagel

Since this smoothie is a nutritious and filling meal, you don’t really need to serve it with anything in particular. Just choose what you’re in the mood for. A toasted egg bagel might be the best breakfast addition to the Jetty Punch Smoothie.

It is light enough not to make the meal too filling and very adaptive at the same time. You can top it off with some cream cheese or pretty much anything of your own choice, as long as it doesn’t overshadow the nutty flavor of the tropical smoothie.

Biscuits

If you’re looking for another breakfast snack accompaniment for your Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie, you have to try the lightest and quickest biscuits ever.

Not only are they made from the most common ingredients, but they also take less than 15 minutes to prepare.

How to Store Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie

The main problem with the smoothies is that they oxidize if exposed to air. This means that the nutritional value of the smoothie is lost.

That’s not exactly the idea for a healthy and tasty snack, isn’t it?

But fear not. We know how to keep your Jetty Punch Tropical smoothies fresh for a couple of days — or even longer.

How to Store Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie in a Fridge

To store the Jetty Punch Smoothie in a fridge, use a glass container with a tightly sealed lid. One of the best choices is the Ball Mason jar.

Just fill the jar completely, as close to the top of the glass as possible, pouring slowly so you don’t trap any air in the jar. Slap the lid and stick it in the fridge for 1-3 days.

Pro tip: add some lemon juice on top of the smoothie before sealing. Vitamin C slows down the oxidizing process.

Once your smoothie starts browning or developing a smell, it’s better to throw it away.

How to Store Jetty Punch Tropical Smoothie in a Freezer

If you have some extra smoothies or prefer to make them in large batches, your best option to keep them fresh is in a freezer. However, in this case, you have to do some planning, since you won’t be able to just grab it and go. The thawing will take some time.

The other important thing to consider is how to store a Jetty Punch Smoothie in a freezer.

Use a freezer-safe mason jar to store a large amount of smoothie, or freeze smaller amounts in the form of ice cubes. Besides, blending will go easier if you already have your smoothie in small pieces.

Finally, if you want to save some room in the freezer, opt for a zip bag.
