Summertime Prep: Thirsty Buddha x Tropical Fruit Smoothie
In truth, it’s only mid-April. We’ve got more rainstorms in our forecasts then we do sunshine-y days. We’ll be carrying umbrellas for at least a little while longer, and our flip flops are still safely tucked away in our closets (unless you’re reading this from sunny California, Florida and the like. If such is the case, then kindly leave us cool-weather dwellers to our imagining!).
It may still be April in reality, but in our hearts summer is in full swing. If you’re looking for some added inspiration to make your beach dreams more vivid, look no further than this smoothie– it’s got Thirsty Buddha and all the delicious tropical fruits you can think of! Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1.5 cups of Thirsty Buddha coconut water
(tip: use Thirsty Buddha’s Mango flavor to increase the tropical factor!)
- 1 large banana
- 1/2 cup of diced pineapple
- 1/2 cup of diced papaya
Try the recipe out for yourselves, upload your pictures to Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and tag Thirsty Buddha!
Guilt-Free Shamrock Shake!
St. Patrick’s Day– the holiday of indulgence and the color green– is upon us! If you’re doing it right, you’re dressed in every shade of green imaginable and turning to the Lucky Charms leprechaun for sartorial inspiration. With this particular holiday, though, it’s easy to get carried away in tradition and over-indulge in a pint or two (or many more!). Rather than making a decision that you’ll regret tomorrow when you’re trying to shake the hangover, not to mention the extra calories you consumed, why not try a festive smoothie that you can feel good about?
Here’s our take on a Shamrock Shake!
Sure, setting new goals for yourself is always a good idea, as is the general concept of working on a better version of your already awesome self. New Years resolutions, however, are not the best way to achieve either of these things! It may be the first week of January, and everyone around you may be discussing their lofty goals and resolutions, but you should opt out– change the way you see your personal development by skipping the tired New Year’s trope!

We are painfully aware of some bad habits- like smoking or making poor food choices. These ones can’t be ignored, and are the result of conscious decisions on our parts. Some habits, though, form without us even realizing it and take some extra care to nip in the bud. (more…)
Maintaining stability with your fitness regime is difficult enough when you’re at home, facing distractions like work, school, family and friends. Take yourself out of your normal element and, without planning and preparation, you’re likely to find yourself in a fitness disaster! (more…)
Breaking The Habit: Skipping Breakfast
Since Thirsty Buddha is not just a coconut water company, but a health and wellness company as well, with every Instagram post, tweet and blog we hope to guide you towards more responsible, healthy choices that you can feel good about making. Health and fitness after all are not just about wellness of the body, but of the mind too.
The key to a healthy lifestyle is making conscious efforts to correct the behaviors that are not serving our lives in a positive way. By breaking our harmful habits, we can make new, productive ones.
