Did you know that Tropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit, purchasing approximately 11.6 billion oranges from Florida each year? That’s a lot of fruit if you ask me! I’m proud to be a part of the Tropicana crew (I’m a TropiMomma!) this year to bring you the latest information about Tropicana’s products and let you in on some great deals too.
When I was a little girl, I remember my mother buying Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice every week. When I would get sick, she’d give me a glass of Tropicana orange juice. She said it would make me feel better. And you know what’s so funny? I do the same thing with my three children. It’s been proven that a day’s supply of vitamin C can help support a healthy immune system. It even has as much potassium as a medium-sized banana — which plays an important role in heart health. And that is why you’ll always find a carton (or bottle) of Tropicana in my refrigerator.
I’ve tried many other brands of orange juice and it doesn’t taste as good and fresh as Tropicana. It’s made from fresh oranges and the best part — it has no added sugar! I mean, why would I want to provide my growing children with juice that is made with sugar? Certainly not this mom!
Nutrition Facts about Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice:

During the hot summers months, I like to make smoothies for my family. We enjoy them with frozen fruit, and at times — with a dash of cinnamon and as always, some Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice. I don’t have a recipe I go by, I just add whatever I have on hand to the mixer and blend away.
This time I made a tropical smoothie. You may ask what’s so tropical about this smoothie? Well, it’s the coconut milk and the mango that makes it tropical! I added frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, fresh mango, 1/2 cup of coconut milk and 3/4 of a cup of Tropicana orange juice. It’s refreshing, nutritious and so easy to make.
As you can see, you don’t need to follow a precise recipe. Just take any fruits you like and Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice and voila — You’ve got yourself a healthy and delicious homemade smoothie that your whole family will love!
